Death Grips axe Lollapalooza set

Rappers Death Grips pulled out of their headline set at the Lollapalooza festival on Saturday (03Aug13) just hours after fans wrecked their equipment following a cancelled gig. The band was booked to perform a small show at a club in Chicago, Illinois on Friday (02Aug13) as part of the event, but anger erupted at the venue when they failed to appear.
Some fans reportedly trashed the group’s drum kit and other equipment following news of the cancellation, and on Saturday it was announced the stars would not be performing its headline set at Lollapalooza that evening.
Festival organisers posted an announcement on on Saturday, simply stating, “Death Grips chose not to appear at Lollapalooza 2013.”
