Duff McKagan rejoining Guns N’ Roses for upcoming tour

on April 01, 2014, 4:35pm

News of a Guns N’ Roses reunion is the type of story made for April Fools’ Day, but in this case it may be true. According to Blabbermouth, bassist Duff McKagan is rumored to be rejoining GNR for its upcoming South American tour.

Update: Tommy Stinson has confirmed to Billboard that McKagan will rejoin GNR for five shows.

Current bassist Tommy Stinson will be playing with The Replacements at Coachella during GNR’s tour. An Argentine radio station reported that McKagan would be filling in for Stinson, and McKagan has done little to downplay the rumors. Yesterday, he tweeted a photo of a GNR setlist along with the caption “Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil! See y’all in the next few weeks, Si? GNR.”

A representative for Guns N’ Roses offered no comment when asked about the rumors by Consequence of Sound earlier today.

McKagan was a member of Guns N’ Roses for 12 years and was an integral part of the band’s worldwide fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He departed the band on fairly amicable terms in 1997 and reunited on stage with Axl Rose in 2010. His band Loaded also opened for GNR in 2011.
