Axl Rose’s Tuesday evening appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has been canceled. The longtime singer and songwriter with Guns N’ Roses, who will headline the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in April, was expected to make an announcement regarding the Coachella news -- as well as to announce a reported Guns N’ Roses tour with former guitarist Slash and other members of the so-called “classic” Guns N’ Roses lineup. 

But late Monday that appearance was scrapped. Said a source with “Jimmy Kimmel Live” who declined to go on the record or elaborate: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately Axl is no longer scheduled to be on Kimmel tomorrow."

Fans have been anticipating this reported Guns N’ Roses return. Over the holidays, mysterious Guns N’ Roses clips ran before screenings of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and the band’s official website has updated the page, suggesting future activity.


For his part, Rose has remained characteristically vague about his intentions. On Friday, he tweeted: “The only thing I know ‘confirmed’ is my LOVE of Taco Bell! Mmmmm ... Taco Bell!! Happy New Years!!”

Guess we’ll just have to wait until he finishes his nachos to get more details.
