The original lineup of Guns N’ Roses–minus lead singer Axl Rose–is rumored to be reuniting to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s seminal debut album Appetite For Destruction.

According to drummer Steven Adler, the event is due to take place on July 28th at the Key Club in Los Angeles.

The club’s website states that Adler’s Appetite, L.A. Guns, and “very special guests” will appear that night. Adler said: “I’ll be down there with my band and Slash, Izzy [Stradlin, guitarist], and Duff [McKagan, bass] will be there too. It’s gonna be great.”

Adler added that it was unlikely Rose would join his former bandmates, but that he expected a full reunion to happen eventually.

He explained: “Axl and I spoke to each other in Las Vegas recently, and I know there’s a chance. It’s just too big. Whatever the Stones make when they play, we’d triple it. It’d be ridiculous not to do it. He can’t be that goofy.”

Rose has recently finished a tour of Japan with his rebranded version of the band.
