Reports surfaced online on Saturday that a television commercial showing footage from the legendary band's Not In This Lifetime aired on AT&T's Game Show Network in the U.S. on Friday (November 25th.)
An online video of the alleged commercial shows the performance clips along with the words "They're back for more in 2017." Watch the YouTube post that claims to be of the commercial airing here.
In additional, music personality Mitch Lafon shared a Facebook post and photo from a user that was directed to Montreal, Canada area radio station CHOM 97.7 that claims to be of a billboard on a Canadian highway promoting a possible tour.
The photo shows the words "Welcome To The Jungle" in classic Appetite for Destruction script next to "#GnFnR" and the user claims to have seen another billboard with the word "Patience" written on it on another area highway.
The authenticity and legitimacy of the billboard or television commercial airing have not yet been confirmed and the band has not official announced any details for the supposed trek but we received word from a reader that the commercial also aired on the FX network on Saturday night. See the Lafon postinghere.
The protest was aimed at Punk London who are marking "40 years of subversive culture" with a series of shows, events and exhibitions. Their plans have been supported by the Mayor of London, the British Library and the British Film Institute. Corre previously said the events were even supported by the Queen which proved "the establishment" had "privatised, packaged and castrated" punk.
According to the BBC, Corre told the crowd: "Punk was never meant to be nostalgic - and you can't learn how to be one at a Museum Of London workshop." Read morehere.
The concerts, March 25 and 26, will also feature Gary Clark Jr. and Jimmie Vaughan. He also has three previously announced shows at London's Royal Albert Hall in May.
Interestingly, the just-announced concerts are billed "A Celebration of 50 Years of Music," and the advertisement uses images of Clapton from throughout his solo career, as well as with some of his former bands including Cream and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, and also with his former Blind Faith bandmate Steve Winwood.

He needs a liver transplant that will not go ahead until outstanding medical bills are settled. Michelle Maher-Williams says: "I've just been so overcome by the extreme show of support that it's been hard for me to find my words. Thank you doesn't seem nearly powerful enough to convey my gratitude.
"How do I give thanks to you for potentially extending my husband's life and giving us the chance to spend many more years together? The best that I can do is to promise to continue fighting for Michael. To be there to encourage, support and protect him, and to be open and honest with all of you along the way." Read morehere.
Springsteen was rescued by a group of passing bikers and he bought them a round of drinks as a thank-you.
Now Joel - who owns a custom motorcycle shop in Long Island - says he has called The Boss to apologize. Addressing the New York crowd, Joel says: "I built a motorcycle for Bruce. So he takes the bike out on Veteran's Day and it breaks down. It's all over national news, 'Bruce's Bike Breaks Down.'
"So I'm reading this and thinking, 'Oh sh*t, I hope it wasn't the bike I built for him.' I called him, 'Bruce, what bike was the bike that broke down?' 'It was the one you made for me.' 'Oh. Sorry about that.' 'Oh no, it's cool, dude.'"
Joel was speaking after his band had played a cover of Springsteen track Born To Run. He adds: "No good deed goes unpunished." Check out videohere.
The band pulled the plug on the trek after guitarist Brent Hinds (Mastodon), broke his leg in a motorcycle accident. The band issued the following statement: "We deeply regret to inform everyone that GTO has to cancel our U.S. tour. Brent Hinds broke his leg in a motorcycle incident. It requires surgery and traveling for him is both impractical and highly ill-advised.
"We can't do our debut tour without our guy. In our view, this is a 'Go all-out or don't go at all' situation. So we had to make the very tough call to cancel. The venues should be providing refunds." Read morehere.
He tells Paperboy: "I really don't know how that's going to feel because in the past, the album cycles haven't really ended with a bang, or even ended decidedly. They just sort of peter out. But this time it really is a bookend.
"I'm glad it's happening at Laneway. There will be tears and cheers, and emotions will be running high. I think it'll be quite weird, but not without a sense of accomplishment."here.
The news came via Halestorm's official Facebook page, in the same breath as the band announcing the release of a cover of AC/DC's "Mistress for Christmas."
"Hey Freaks, is it too early to be saying 'Happy Holidays'?" the band stated in the post. "Regardless if it is or not, we're jumping into the holiday spirit TODAY with the release of a cover of the always-excellent AC/DC!"
"And yes, we DO have a new covers EP in the works (this song will NOT be on it)," they added, including that the specifics for the EP will be announced soon. Read morehere.
But earlier this month Kowalczyk posted a message on Instagram which featured a picture of Ed along with the Live logo and the hashtags #liveband, #freaks4live, #live, #livetheband, and #thebandlive. Ed made a similar post on his Facebook page as well, and also uploaded a picture of the band from when they were teenagers.
Although nothing has been said officially, it does seem likely that a reunion is happening, especially considering Kowalczyk and Live guitarist Chad Taylor appeared on a radio show together last month, adding credibility to the fact that the pair are on speaking terms again. Read morehere.
The band sneak-released the title last month as a way of escaping from the traditional release cycle, and having people prejudge the material before it had been heard.
A studio video sees Avenged Sevenfold discussing whether a particular note is too distracting to use, and shows guitarist Zacky Vengeance looking bemused as they try to run through their track Sunny Disposition.
Shadows says: "The record is very 'out' - there's a lot of notes that people may not be able to understand at first. It's a major shift for the band and it'll be interesting to see how people take that. I think it'll become some people's favorite thing that they ever heard from us.
"There'll be some who don't understand it at all, and think it's almost mistakes. 'This can't be right!' That's exciting to us. It's exciting to challenge our fans. In life, if you're not feeling something, then what's the point?" Watch the videohere.

The DVD release features two live Nightwish performances filmed in Tampere and at their sold out show at London's Wembley Arena earlier this year.
Nightwish recently announced they would be taking a break throughout 2017 - but this week, singer Floor Jansen promised fans that they'd return with "something special" the following year.
She said: "We'll be back in 2018. We haven't said anything about a record or what we're going to do. We have been keeping it a secret on purpose, because it's something special - something that I really think Nightwish fans will really like.
"But for now, we're taking a break from the whole thing - not because it wasn't good, but maybe because it was good. It's good to reflect on life and take a step back and sit and relax and do something else. And we'll be back with a vengeance in 2018." Watch the videohere.
The six-track title is designed as a bridging release between Ghost's third album Meliora, launched in 2015, and their fourth full-length work, expected towards the end of 2017.
One of the band's Nameless Ghouls recently reported: "It's a continuation of Meliora, but it's sort of a response. I've used the word 'pre-acopalyptic' on Meliora. It's sort of the height of civilisation, and, obviously, there has to be an end to that.
"If there was an absence of a God, there might be a return of a deity, which usually comes in horrible form. So it will be a darker album."
He'd previously suggested the record would be completed in the spring of next year, set around plans to tour Europe, Australia, Japan and South America.
He added of Popestar: "If you hear the EP, don't think, 'Oh, the next album is gonna sound exactly like this.' But it's a good way for us to sneak in elements. You might hear a synth sound like this on the next record, but not as evident." See the dateshere.
Frontman Austin Dickinson says: "Not only are we absolutely stoked with this record, we feel incredibly lucky to be putting it out. It's big, it's diverse - these songs are like our kids, we hope you all enjoy them as much as we enjoy playing them.
"We can not wait to have a belter with you out on the road in 2017!" Dickinson is joined in the lineup by guitarist and keyboardist Conor O'Keefe, guitarist Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting and drummer Dave Fee. Read morehere.
The band features Nick Beggs, Roger King (Steve Hackett) and Marco Minnemann and won the Vanguard award at this year's Progressive Music Awards.
Beggs had the following to say about the new clip, "This is the last of five video clips from the album, .Do nothing till you hear from me'. This track 'Night school for idiots' offers up the idea that looking back is not always easy." Watch the videohere.
The show is scheduled to happen at Mulcahy's Pub & Concert Hall in Wantagh, NY on Saturday, January 14th and will mark the very first time that the band will perform the album in its entirety. Support will be provided by Vixon.
Zebra have also announced that they will be doing a live video shoot at their upcoming concert at the Saenger Theater in Mobile, AL on December 14th. Find more details about the showshere.
Previously known as Synaesthesia, the band changed their name to Kyros in 2015 following a change of management and record label, released Vox Humana on November 5.
Speaking about Vox Humana, keyboardist and singer Adam Warne commented: "We are hugely excited for the release of Vox Humana as we are especially proud of the work we have put into this release - speaking from a musical, artistic and even business point of view. To say a lot of work has gone into this would be an understatement." Watch the videohere.
They'll follow performances in North America and come just before he heads to Australia for several gigs. Wednesday 13 will play acoustic tracks from his career and recount his tales from life on the road. He'll be supported by his country side project Bourbon Crow.
Speaking about the UK leg of the road trip, Wednesday 13 says: "I'm so excited to bring my Undead Unplugged show back to the UK, as this is where it all started.
"Not only is it my unplugged show, it will feature a set from my side project, Bourbon Crow this time round. These shows are like a storytellers' set, plus we have questions and answers with the audience and a long list of songs from over the past two decades.
"These shows are always so personal and intimate with the fans, so I can't wait for February." See all of the dateshere.
The band have just launched their new album Prayers For The Blessed, Vol.2, which came hot on the heels of Prayers For The Damned, Vol. 1 which came out earlier this year.
And Sixx reports that the ideas just keep coming - with work on what will be their sixth album already underway. He tells The Aquarian: "I think that one of the keys to Sixx AM is, and all due respect to Motley Crue… what a great run we had, great brotherhood, and great body of work… but as an artist, you just keep creating. I don't think that there's any shelf life on creativity.
"You just keep going and one day you're in your 70s and 80s and you're still doing stuff - and you're doing it for you. You don't know what's out there. You don't know as a photographer what you're going to be or as a poet or as a songwriter or a travelling musician. So, you just keep going."
He continues: "With Sixx AM the answer is never 'no' - it's always 'yes' and that I think is the key to part of our camaraderie and our brotherhood and the fact that we're constantly evolving. Read morehere.
He tells Metal Injection: "The quadrophonic sound is not something new but I feel like it's something under appreciated. For example, Pink Floyd played with this idea, to have sound surrounding the audience. Behind them, in front of them, above them. This way the individual is more immersed in the experience sonically before all the theatrics even come into play.
"We will be incorporating several performance artists in the upcoming shows, where we will be conveying these stories within the music visually, via each performance artist's own unique medium. There will be a lot of theatrics involved in an effort to break down that wall.
"As far as the shows go visually, it will not have the traditional feel and style of a show where the band runs through a bunch of songs on stage and the crowd stands on the floor moving if they choose to or staying still if they don't."
Gunn adds: "Perhaps this will get the f***ers to stay off their bullsh*t phones and things like that in this kind of atmosphere, but as with most things, I find myself wishfully thinking." Watch King 810's trailer for the tourhere.
