Rocker Slash has blamed promoters in India for scrapping a series of upcoming shows without explanation.

The guitar great was initially booked to perform in the country in February (13), but the dates were postponed until October (13), reportedly due to the unavailability of his singer, Alter Bridge star Myles Kennedy.

Slash took to his Twitter.com blog on Tuesday (06Aug13) to tell devotees the rescheduled dates have now been axed too, revealing he has now started working with a new concert company to take his shows to India next year (14).

However, he wants followers to know he had nothing to do with the cancellations and had every intention of hitting the stage as planned.

In a tweet on Wednesday (07Aug13), he writes, "Just to set the record straight, I didn't cancel India tour, the promoter did. I, to this day, don't know why."
