Guns N' Roses has announced two shows at the new T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip.

According to Billboard.com, fans were overjoyed when it was announced that Guns N' Roses and its original members -- Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan -- would headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival on April 16 and 23. But now it appears that they will perform in Las Vegas first on April 8 and 9.

This will be the first time that Rose-Slash-McKagan perform together since Buenos Aires in 1993. It is not clear if they will be joined by the other two founding members, guitarist Izzy Stradlin and drummer Steve Adler.
