As the mud settles on the Reading and Leeds Festival, the apparent 'war' between Guns n' Roses and festival organisers is showing some signs of abatement today (August 31).

Axl Rose posted on his Twitter that it was an apparent lack of communication which led to the singer waging "war":

"So u know, we allegedly had a deal in place pre show w/the city at least at Leeds to do a bit longer performance that was either miscommunication, someone wasn't informed, changed their mind, didn't care or [it] was a con."

The band started their Leeds Festival appearance 30 minutes late and claimed that they had been informed by promoters that they could play until 11:58.
