Rose Threatens To Axe Festival Headline Slot

Confusion surrounds GUNS N' ROSES' planned headline set at Britain's Leeds Festival on Sunday night (29Aug10) after frontman AXL ROSE vowed to pull out in a bust-up over the event's curfew.
Organisers of the Reading Festival in England pulled the plug early on the Paradise City hitmakers after they arrived onstage an hour late on Friday (27Aug10) and overran their finish time.
Before departing the stage, Rose insisted the band would axe its slot at the event's twin festival in Leeds on Sunday, speaking through a megaphone to tell the crowd: "Unfortunately due to tonight we will not be at Leeds, although we will try and play a bit more now."
But on Saturday (28Aug10), a spokesman for the festivals stated that Guns N' Roses are still scheduled to play at Leeds.
He said, "After failing to take to the stage at the scheduled 9.30pm time, the performance started at 10.30pm and the band were given permission by the festival to play 30 minutes extra to its scheduled 11.30pm finish until midnight... Guns N' Roses wanted to 'extend' the new agreed curfew past midnight but were prevented from doing so in order to comply with the entertainment licence issued by Reading Borough Council."
