Fans and diehards were disheartened by the act but Axl hit the GNR forums and guitarist DJ Ashba let his opinion be known via Twitter. However, word is most of the other acts weren't impressed. System of a Down's Serj Tankian took a swipe at the behaviour when talking to Rocksound at the UK festival.
"I find it ridiculous that promoters who have been burnt so many times before still attempt to bring the same act back," he told the magazine.
"Promoters should just lock him out, the band haven't turned up on time, they've caused a bunch of riots in the past, I don't know what kind of contract they have or if they are paying him still but it's just not fair on any other professional playing any other timeslot at this festival."
