After just dropping off the ALT+LDN bill for next Monday, Reading & Leeds have announced that Machine Gun Kelly also won't be performing at their festivals this weekend.

Unsurprisingly MGK won't be able to make any of these events "due to restrictions and logistics", with Reading & Leeds writing in a short statement: "Due to restrictions and logistics, Machine Gun Kelly is no longer able to perform at #RandL21. Keep an eyes on our website for news of a replacement and other artist announcements!"

ALT+LDN seemingly faced the same logistical issues, sharing in a statement: "Despite all our relentless efforts behind the scenes, some things have been taken completely out of our control. We now know that due to the restrictive COVID measures that are in place, some of the international artists that were booked to play at ALT+LDN are unable to come."
