Reunited Guns N' Roses coming to Atlanta in July


If you were hoping for a Guns N' Roses reunion, all you needed was just a little patience .

Axl Rose is regrouping with founding members Slash and Duff McKagan for the Not In This Lifetime Tour, which will hit Atlanta Wednesday, July 27 with a stop at the Georgia Dome. The tour kicks off June 23 in Detroit.

The news follows their previously announced headlining dates at this year's Coachella Music & Arts Festival.

If you can get a last-minute flight to L.A., the trio will hit the stage for a preview show tonight at The Troubadour, where they launched their careers.

Slash quit the band in 1996 after a decade that saw the hard rockers tear up the music scene with mega-selling albums including “Appetite for Destruction” and “Use Your Illusion I” and “II.”
