American hard rock veterans Guns N Roses were forced to leave the stage last night at the Reading festival, after they continued to play after their curfew, even though they had negotiated an extra thirty minutes to their set. The band is still scheduled to perform at Reading's sister festival Leeds, even though frontman Axl Rose said they wouldn't on stage at Reading. A message from festival chief Melvin Benn reads:
Festival chief Melvin Benn said: "After failing to take to the stage at the scheduled 9.30pm (BST) time, the performance started at 10.30pm and the band were given permission by the festival to play 30 minutes extra to its scheduled 11.30pm finish until midnight."
He added: "Guns N' Roses wanted to 'extend' the new agreed curfew past midnight but were prevented from doing so in order to comply with the entertainment licence issued by Reading Borough Council."
