Looks Like Someone’s Getting Into Tour Shape…

The latest Guns N' Roses rumor being heard around the world: Axl Rose has reportedly confirmed to a fan that a full-scale tour  is in the works.

The fan, Mark Guglielmo, ran into Rose in Atlanta recently and posed with the singer for an Instagram photo taken by Rose's manager Fernando Lebeis. Guglielmo -- whose Instagram handle is ntonestraw -- posted the photo and then a subsequent message saying that when he wished Rose good luck on "those few shows" GNR is doing in April Rose responded, "thanks man, but we're going to do a whole tour." Guglielmo also noted that "it really looked like (Rose has) been working out a lot. his arms looked muscular."

GNR -- Rose reunited with co-founders Slash and Duff McKagan -- currently has just six shows on the books, starting April 8-9 in Las Vegas and also including a pair of shows at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and another two in Mexico City. A longer tour has been rumored but not yet confirmed by the band.
