The reunited “classic" Guns N’ Roses lineup will kick off its 2016 reunion with a just announced undersell show tonight (April 1) at Los Angeles’ Troubadour nightclub.

The band broke the momentous news today with a spur-of the-moment announcement via press release. Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan will join forces in a matter of hours tonight at the 500-capacity venue that helped kick-start the band’s career.

According to the official statement, “limited tickets” will go on sale today at 12 p.m. local time at Gibson Brands on 8801 Sunset Boulevard. Each lucky fan will have the opportunity to purchase one wristband for the “retro” price of $10, which will grant admission to the show. A display of Guns N’ Roses memorabilia (including attire, awards and original artwork) will be set up at the former Tower Records location for fans to check out while in queue for wristbands. Doors for the show are 10 p.m. local time.
