Guns 'N Roses have finally announced their long-rumoured reunion tour.

The "Sweet Child O' Mine" rockers are headlining this year's Coachella festival in April and recently announced a pair of warm-up shows at Las Vegas's newly-opened T-Mobile Arena.

Now the band have confirmed a full summer 2016 reunion tour by sharing the names of 22 North American cities in a teaser clip on Twitter. Aptly enough, they began the tweet by writing "Patience..."


Sadly, live dates in the UK or anywhere else outside of North America have yet to be mentioned by the band.

Guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan have both rejoined Guns 'N Roses for the tour, having each quit the Axl Rose-fronted band in the late 90s. 

However, fellow original band member Izzy Stradlin has confirmed he will not be involved in the reunion tour.


Meanwhile, it was recently reported that the band are shooting a new music video after a casting call went out in London for two very G'NR-sounding roles as "kidnapping bad ass chicks" in a project involving Guns 'N Roses. 

The band's most recent album, Chinese Democracy, came out in 2008, some 15 years after its predecessor, covers collection "The Spaghetti Incident?". Neither Slash nor McKagan were involved in Chinese Democracy.
