Guns N' Roses won't perform at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, according to its producer.
Paul Shaffer, who has served as musical director for the ceremony since it began in 1986, made the confirmation over Twitter after being asked how long the event will be.
"Guns N' Roses will not be performing, so not as long as you think," he wrote. The tweet has since been deleted, but Blabbermouth managed to snap a screenshot, which you can see below.
If brings months off rumors to an end, after speculation that their original lineup would perform live at the event.
It began when it was first announced that they would be inducted to the Hall Of Fame, but Slash soon cast doubt on whether he would attend. Axl Rose seemed to avoid commenting on the matter, then Dizzy Reed said they would probably talk about it at some point.
However, Shaffer may have been laying a red herring to put a plug in the circle of rumors, so a surprise performance could still be in store.
Is the dream of a classic GN'R performance over, or do you smell something fishy?
