After Monday's cold November rain, Tuesday brings good news for Minnesota Guns N' Roses fans.

Signs heralding the return of G N'R to cities dotted around North America started appearing at the weekend – including in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

They give credence to rumors that started at the weekend that the band's reunion, which brought back the "classic" lineup including Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, will pay a stop in the Twin Cities.

The band, known for hits including "Sweet Child of Mine" and " has played scores of venues in 2016 on its "Not In This Lifetime" tour, and released a video teaser on its social media pages Sunday that proclaimed "The Machine Is Back at It in 2017."

Signs with the song titles "Patience" and "Welcome to the Jungle" have been spotted on Twin Cities billboards the past few days along with the hashtag #GnFnR2017.

And Star Tribune music writer Chris Riemenschneider confirms that this means the rockers will be back in the metro area next year, with the only question being whether they will perform at TCF Bank Stadium, Target Field or U.S. Bank Stadium.

He adds that anyone planning on going should start saving, considering the average ticket costs on the band's 2016 tour was $130.

G N'R's remarkably fervent fanbase has helped the "Not In This Lifetime" tour rake in "a silly amount of cash," Consequence of Sound reports, with a single show with Lenny Kravitz at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey hauling in $11,687,391 alone.

In total, the gross ticket sales for the tour exceeded $112 million.
