Guns N' Roses are playing the Troubadour tonight. Good luck getting in

Guns N' Roses are headed back to where it all began.

The reunited rockers, slated to headline next month's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, have announced an extremely last-minute show at their beloved Troubadour tonight, April 1.

It will be the first show with their new, mostly original lineup (and a chance to see who else beyond Axl, Slash and Duff is in the new band). Tickets -- in the form of untransferrable wristbands, but at only $10 -- go on sale at noon today at Gibson Brands, on the site of the old Tower Records on the Sunset Strip.

If you're reading this at home, the lines are probably already insurmountable. (Or maybe not! We all remember the great Rolling Stones at Echoplex ticketing crapshoot in 2013).

The band is reminding fans that the site has historical GNR significance, as Slash used to work at the old Tower Records there, and Axl worked across the street at Tower Video. To mark the occasion of the band's return, the site has been transformed into a mini GNR museum.

The Times' Mikael Wood will soon have a dispatch from his adventures at the site, and will hopefully end up with a ticket to the show. Maybe. As is always the case with GNR, "Patience" is key.
