Despite messages on Twitter, Guns 'N' Roses will play the Reading and Leeds Festival.

According to a spokesperson, Axl Rose's Twitter account had been hacked and a message posted claiming that all future shows had been cancelled. But despite the band's poor history in turning up at shows, the band are still set for their UK dates at the end of the month.

Guns 'N' Roses are set headline the Reading And Leeds Festival and will take place August 27-29.
