Guns N' Roses Shows Not Axed

GUNS N' ROSES' management team has moved swiftly to deny reports the band has cancelled their upcoming gigs after a hacker posted a fake message on AXL ROSE's Twitter page.
Fans of the rockers were left stunned on Sunday (15Aug10) to see a post on the microblogging site, seemingly from the frontman, declaring all their imminent shows had been axed.
The message read, "All upcoming Guns N' Roses dates are officially cancelled. Please contact your place of purchase for any refunds."
But the band's rep has spoken out to clarify the speculation, insisting the message was not genuine and planned tour dates in the autumn (10), as well as slots at Britain's upcoming Reading and Leeds festivals, will go ahead as planned.
A spokesperson for the events' organisers Festival Republic tells BBC's Newsbeat, "(We) are informed by GN'R management that Guns N' Roses have NOT cancelled their performances at Reading & Leeds and that Axl Rose's Twitter account was hacked into and all claims of dates being cancelled are unfounded."
