According to TMZ.com, GUNS N’ ROSES’ tour bus broke down on Interstate 10 in Fontana, California just hours head of the band’s appearance at the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival. The GN’R musicians weren’t on the bus at the time — the vehicle was en route to pick them up in Indio, California. The necessary repairs were made and the bus went on its way.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Coachella has come a long way since its inception 17 years ago. After five years of struggling to just break even (it actually lost $1 million its first year), the annual festival is now an A-list must-go for Hollywood stars, fashionistas and diehard music fans alike.

This year, a sell-out audience of 100,000 was expected to attend each day, which has morphed into a spring rite of passage, spread out over six days.

The demographics of the show have shifted, but the stunning setting in the desert remains the same. This year, selfie sticks are outlawed and 324 indoor toilets have been installed, which anyone with a general admission ticket can access. And no one will go hungry: the foodies have prevailed, bringing in heavy hitters from L.A.’s dining scene, including Roy Choi’s Commissary, Guerrilla Tacos, Blue Bottle Coffee and McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams.
Can’t go, but still want to play in the sun? Coachella has introduced a new virtual reality app to digitally drop fans into the festivities. Plus there’s the Coachella YouTube channel with live streaming, and, of course, nonstop social media updates.

The rumors have been confirmed: Just hours before Guns N’ Roses are scheduled to take the stage for their triumphant reunion gig at Coachella, AC/DC formally announced that – before GN’R’s Not in This Lifetime Tour kicks off – Axl Rose will first join them as vocalist for the remaining dates of their Rock or Bust trek.

“AC/DC will resume their Rock Or Bust World Tour with Axl Rose joining on vocals,” the band announced in a statement Saturday. Rose will take the place of longtime AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson, who was forced to abruptly quit touring with the group or risk “total hearing loss.”

“AC/DC band members would like to thank Brian Johnson for his contributions and dedication to the band throughout the years. We wish him all the best with his hearing issues and future ventures,” the band said. “As much as we want this tour to end as it started, we understand, respect and support Brian’s decision to stop touring and save his hearing. We are dedicated to fulfilling the remainder of our touring commitments to everyone that has supported us over the years, and are fortunate that Axl Rose has kindly offered his support to help us fulfill this commitment.”

The band continued, “The European stadium tour dates begin on May 7 in Lisbon, Portugal and run through June 12 in Aarhus, Denmark as previously announced. Following this European run of dates with AC/DC, Axl Rose will head out on his Guns N’ Roses, ‘Not In This Lifetime’ Summer Stadium Tour.”

AC/DC added that the 10 U.S. shows postponed by Johnson’s sudden departure will also be rescheduled with Rose handling vocals.
