Yungblud hits back at accusations of miming guitar performance

"go plant a tree and stop talking bollocks"

Yungblud has hit back at accusations that he mimed playing the guitar at a concert.

A Twitter user reposted a TikTok video on Wednesday (November 3) which shows Yungblud playing the guitar during a recent performance.

The user tweeted “guitars not even plugged in for fucks sake”. Earlier today, Yungblud retorted with a series of tweets, calling the user “a bully who wants a little ounce of attention.”


The Doncaster artist explained that he had been using a wireless guitar, and that his guitar riff “doubles the baseline of the song” and accompanies the “high guitar an octave down”.

In the video, Yungblud is seen tossing his guitar before a solo ends, which prompted some speculation by fans that he had been miming. The artist pointed out that his “guitar player Adam to the right of me is clearly playin the solo (rather well i might add)”.

He concluded by offering to send anyone the guitar track from the show recorded by his sound man. “i will forever back my art and i shouldn’t have to explain myself to anybody but the internet’s full of fucking morons so here we go xoxo,” he tweeted. See his tweets below.


Yungblud recently concluded a string of headline UK dates in Liverpool on October 19. In December, he will perform for two nights in Glasgow, before embarking on the US leg of his ‘Life on Mars’ tour in January 2022.

Yesterday (November 5), Yungblud appeared at an intimate show by Bring Me the Horizon at venerable concert venue Whiskey A Go Go. Together, they performed their collaborative single ‘Obey’.
