Guns N’ Roses lived up to their erratic live reputation at the Reading Festival on Friday night when they arrived on stage an hour late, had their set cut short and then refused to leave the stage. Despite the anger of their own fans the band have since launched an attack on promoter Mitchell Benn, calling him a “cocky… money grabbing prick”.
Writing on Twitter, guitarist DJ Ashba said “apparently the promoter has had a personal grudge with GN’R stemming from eight years ago, if this was the case why book the band? He knows our show. Let me guess… To take our fans money and then not allow us to give them a show that they payed for. This was clearly not a curfew thing because after cutting our power like a selfish money grabbing prick, he allowed music blasting through out the venue till the early morning.”
