Guns N’ Roses are offering a “Signature VIP Experience” at their upcoming Las Vegas shows for $2,500.
According to Alternative Nation, the package does not include a meet and greet opportunity with Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan. It does include one ticket in the first 10 rows, a signed, numbered, limited edition tour poster, a photo on the stage before the show, a backstage tour, pre-show cocktails, access to a VIP hospitality lounge, a dinner buffet and drinks, prizes, private merchandise shopping and other “perks.”
Customers will also get the “Essential Guns N’ Roses VIP Gift Bag,” including special merchandise and a commemorative VIP laminate and matching lanyard.
Guns N’ Roses will play on April 8th and 9th at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas before headlining California’s Coachella Festival on April 16th and 23rd. A summer tour is also rumoured for the reunited group.
Meanwhile, longtime Gun bassist Tommy Stinson, who was in the band from 1998 until 2014, says that a partial reunion of the group’s classic lineup “will be a healing thing” for the musicians involved.
Stinson told us a while back why he stayed with Guns N’ Roses for so long: “I had doubts at certain points, and the thing that kept me going every time is that I would talk to Axl about this and that, his ideas about what we’re doing and what we’re gonna do and stuff like that. And every time, I just kinda had to stop and go, ‘You know, he really knows exactly what he wants to get.’ Every time I had a doubt, I would talk to him about stuff, and totally be back in it.”
Asked how he feels about the recently announced reunion of Axl, Slash and Duff, Stinson told The Current, “I think everyone kind of knows where I stand with it all. I left it in a good way . . . So I think it worked out. And I think they’ll have fun. It will be a healing thing for ’em, if it works out good. It will be good for them.”
Other members of the lineup that Stinson was in — including drummer Frank Ferrer and guitarist Richard Fortus — are said to have been retained for the reunion.
