In a feat nearly as impressive as bringing Tupac Shakur back from the dead, Coachella has apparently persuaded the original lineup of Guns N' Roses to get back together for this year's festival. Sources tells Billboard that the reunited band is set to headline the festival in April and is also in talks to play around 25 stadium gigs in North America this summer, with a fee of up to $3 million per show. Axl Rose and Slash haven't played together since July 17, 1993, and a reunion would mean an end to one of the longest-lasting and bitterest feuds in rock, the Sydney Morning Herald notes. (A dispute over Michael Jackson and a big-screen TV was rumored to be the reason for the split.)
