This would be huge…

Guns N’ Roses are one of the biggest rock bands from the late ’80s and ’90s after their debut album Appetite for Destruction propelled them into super-stardom.

While the original Gun N’Roses ended four albums later beginning a hiatus of almost two decades, Axl Rose kept the band going at various stages with interchanging band members.

But now, Slash and Duff McKagan have returned to the band for a reunion tour which saw the rock stars playing in Coachella earlier this year.

According to The Sun, the band are close to announcing a gig in Ireland after GNR’s management team met with organisers from the Emerald Isle.

A concert has reportedly been provisionally decided for Croke Park in July, but talks are ongoing over a date for the gig.

The band have been selling out gigs across the US and have recently announced that they will be extending their world tour to Melbourne, Singapore, Bangkok and Dubai.

The tour is called the Not In This Lifetime Tour due to the fact a reunion looked unlikely for many years due to bad blood between the band members.

Imagine, Guns N’Roses on-stage in Croke Park… what a concert that would be.
