Fans, who officially feared news of the show was an April Fool's Day prank, started lining up for $10 (£7) tickets on Friday morning after learning they would go on sale at the former site of Tower Records in West Hollywood at noon local time.

Reports suggest the band, consisting of Axl Rose, Duff MCKagan and Slash, will hit the stage at 11pm.

The trio regrouped late last year (15) and announced plans to headline the Coachella festival in California later this month (Apr16).

The reformed classic G N' R line-up also have concerts in Mexico City planned before Coachella, and earlier this week (beg28Mar16), a group spokesman confirmed plans for the band to tour North America, with exact dates and venues to be announced.
