Guns 'N Roses frontman Axl Rose has never been the reliable sort. That's just his style. So when a hacker posted an announcement on Rose's Twitter page last night saying the band had canceled the remaining leg of their European tour, it didn't seem like much of a surprise. More surprising were the things Rose's fans had to say before the hoax was revealed. As it turns out, not all of them are digging this apparently self-obsessed aging rocker thing:
GnR cancelling shows?? I would have been more surprised if Axl actually turned up and played.
When you really really think about it, are you all actually that upset that you don't get to see the tattered remains of what was once GNR?
axl rose has just increased the value of reading tickets by saying GnR have cancelled. i dunno why people keep booking him, he's deadout
@Slash Axl just cancelled the entire current GNR tour. He just said so on his Twitter. Unrelated to u, but just a FYI. same ole same ole Axl
@FullyAutomatic9 dude seriously. Surprise, surprise. All GnR shows cancelled.
Its funny I am now hoping the GnR cancellation is true, could definitely think of a few ways to spend the refund of 2 tickets lol!
Totally not surprised about gnr pulling out of reading, that was one of the first things we all said when the lineup was announced I swear.
Axl Rose has always been a tosser. If I had a ticket for Reading I would be pleased his 'so called' GNR have cancelled.
GNR do it. Cancel. No one cares.
