Alice In Chains will help Guns N’ Roses ring in their long, long, long-awaited reunion next month when they open for Axl Rose and co. on their first two shows back together.

As previously announced, GN’R’s first two shows will take place on Apr. 8 and 9 at the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Gun N’ Roses will then take their reunion show to Coachella on back-to-back weekends, beginning Apr. 16.

Alice In Chains also returned after an extended hiatus following the 2002 death of frontman Layne Staley. The group’s most recent album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, was released in 2013.

Guns N’ Roses is returning with Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan all in tow. Sadly, Izzy Stradlin has declared that he will not be part of the festivities.
