Update: Guns N’ Roses will play Reading, Leeds

Guns N' Roses fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief after Reading and Leeds organisers have confirmed that the band will still headline the festivals this month.

As we reported earlier today (Monday), the Internet was awash with the rumour that the ‘Paradise City’ group had cancelled all their upcoming shows following a Tweet by Axl Rose.

Now, however, festival bosses have said that the lead singer’s Twitter account was hacked.

We’ll bring you any more details on this story as we get them. 

The festival is less than two weeks away. Arcade Fire and Blink 182 are the other acts set to headline.
