Guns N’ Roses not cancelling Reading And Leeds Festivals and other UK gigs

Spokesperson for festival tells NME the singer's Twitter account was hacked

Guns N’ Roses are not cancelling their forthcoming dates, a spokesperson for the Reading And Leeds Festivals has told NME.

The dates, including the headlining slots at next week’s (August 27-29) event, were thrown into doubt by a message from Axl Rose’s Twitter account, which claimed all future shows were cancelled.

However, the spokesperson for the festivals explained that they had it confirmed from the band that Rose‘s account had been hacked and that next week’s slots at the Reading And Leeds Festivals are set to go ahead as planned.


Festival Republic are informed by GN’R management that Guns N’ Roses have [i]not]/i] cancelled their performances at Reading and Leeds,” the event’s promoters explained in a statement. “Axl Rose’s twitter account was hacked into and all claims of dates being cancelled are unfounded.”
