Guns N' Roses is aiming for a Detroit area stop on its upcoming North American tour.

The rock 'n' roll bad boys -- whose founding members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan have reunited after two decades years apart, while Rose continued the band with other players -- released a short video message on Friday morning, March 25, featuring the opening whistle from the band's hit "Patience" and a the message "Coming Summer 2016." The list of 21 cities includes a Detroit stop.

No specific dates or venues were revealed, although it's been rumored that GNR plans to play stadiums on the trek.

The group is playing six shows next month, starting April 8-9 in Las Vegas and including a pair of performances at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., and another two dates in Mexico City.

Besides the founding trio -- Slash left the band in 1996, McKagan a year later -- GNR hasn't yet announced who else will be part of the lineup. Original guitarist Izzy Stradlin has said he will not be taking part in the shows, while drummer Steven Adler has said he hopes to have some role in the reunion.

More details are expected to be announced soon.
