The original Guns N' Roses line-up are reportedly in talks to reunite for a world tour to kick off next year, just a month after former band guitarist Slash confirmed he has rekindled his relationship with frontman Axl Rose following a near 20-year feud

According to Mirror, the iconic rock group are discussing plans for the reunion tour which is set to see all band members receive a very tidy pay packet as promoters have estimated the shows could see the band make an estimated $65 million pounds.

Commenting on the potential reunion, LA marketing expert Alex Villa said: "Demand for tickets and interest in the USA alone would earn the group tens of millions of dollars."

"A world tour, re-issued CDs and new material rockets that figure easily...Guns N' Roses were a powerhouse in rock in the nineties and a reunion will be a huge deal."

"The band only need to do a year on the road and would never have to worry about money again in their lives."

If the tour needed any more of a reason to be a big deal it would mark exactly 20 years since Slash would share the stage with Rose, following his departure from the band in 1996. 

The news comes in the wake of Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst's comments who said he had a "strong feeling" a GNR reunion was happening very soon.
