This ain’t no April Fool’s Joke my friends because you are not imagining the words in front of you “Guns N Roses Will Perform At The Troubadour Tonight” April 1st, 2016 – Check out the press piece I received a short time ago and the poster. Yeah I’ll come back with some thoughts as well.
The Press Release:

CASH ONLY! Purchasers will receive a non-transferable wrist band at point of sale. While in the queue, fans are invited to start the celebratory day with a trip down memory lane in the venue where Slash used to work (GNR amateur historians also know Axl worked across the street at the now defunct Tower Video), as the old Tower store will be transformed into a complete interactive GNR experience with a memorabilia exhibit curated by Blaine Halvorson, designer of MadeWorn. The exhibit opens at 12pm and will include historic items such as members’ classic attire, original artwork, personal awards and more. Additionally, GNR exclusive merchandiser, Bravado will be onsite with a pop up shop featuring exclusive merchandise to celebrate the April 1 Troubadour appearance.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow. Good luck to all who manage to be over there and actually are able to get in. Let’s hope it’s not one of those fake “about the fans” events like we saw the Foo Fighters doing a few months ago with their Irving Plaza appearance. People I know are still complaining about that debacle.
