American hard rock band Guns N' Roses will be heading to Mexico City this year as part of their reunion concert tour two months from now.

According to COS, the famous 80s group, featuring Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, will perform at the 26,000-seater Foro Sol on April 19.

The show in Mexico is said to be the first one outside of the United States, and will happen in-between Guns N' Roses' Coachella performances during the same month, Ultimate Classic Rock said.

It added that prior to the South American gig, the rock band will first appear at the launch of the new T-Mobile Arena on April 8 and April 9.

However, only the three original members have confirmed their appearances for the show. That being said, Ultimate Classic Rock said that there could be other guests, like keyboardists Chris Pitman and Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer.

Below is the complete tour dates of Guns N' Roses as per COS:

April 8 - Las Vegas, NV @ T-Mobile Arena

April 9 - Las Vegas, NV @ T-Mobile Arena

April 16 - Indio, CA @ Coachella Music Festival

April 19 - Mexico City, MX @ Foro Sol

April 23 - Indio, CA @ Coachella Music Festival

In addition, a post on its official Facebook page said that a pre-selling of tickets via Ticketmaster will be done starting 11 a.m. of Feb. 8 until 10 p.m. of Feb. 9. The general sale will commence at 10 a.m. on Feb. 10.

"Members of Nightrain, the official fan club of Guns N' Roses will be notified in advance in order to have the opportunity to buy tickets at a special pre-sale," the post furthered.

On the other hand, San Diego Union Tribune said that the prices of tickets for the Las Vegas concerts were around $79.50 to $300. They started selling last month.

Meanwhile, Cleveland.com noted that AEG Live vice president Bobby Reynolds expressed excitement at the bringing back together of one of the biggest rock bands in history.

"Guns N' Roses choosing to return to the stage in their full glory, on the Las Vegas Strip to open T-Mobile Arena is rock n' roll history. This is going to be an awesome event and not to be missed," he added.

According to Billboard, this will be the first time the band will play again as a group since the original members of the band performed in July 1993 in Argentina.

It was noted by Rolling Stone that the group became very popular with their album "Appetite for Destruction" in 1987.
