Rumours had been swimming around that Hole had dropped out of Soundwave 2012. On outspoken promoter AJ Maddah’s twitter feed, he half confirmed it by tweeting: “Probably. Will wait to talk to her dipshit agent on Monday night before commenting.”

He responded to suggestions that Courtney Love pulled out because she didn’t want to “support” Limp Bizkit by tweeting: “That seems to be the excuse. Funny that they reconfirmed after seeing the rest of the line-up and artwork.”

He later responded to disappointed fans: “tbh, I am really mad about this. I was given so many assurances that this would not happen when I took the booking.” And then: “And that is why we got 3 confirmations the last hours before announcement and with full knowledge of the line-up.”

AJ then all but confirmed that Hole were out, tweeting: “Agent, despite promise not to pull out: ‘I only promised to get the fee. We have no control over what Courtney does'”, then “No point talking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up & act like a rotten twat to other artists, fans, etc.” and finally “Yep. Limp is the excuse they are giving. Like we were going to ask her permission everytime we book a band.”

So for all intents and purposes, we can assume Hole is out because of Limp Bizkit. Take sides, people.
