Courtney Love’s Hole won’t be appearing at Soundwave

Courtney Love has put a nix to her alternative rock band Hole’s gig at Australia’s upcoming Soundwave Festival. Her reasoning, according to a Tweet, revolves around finding out that Hole would be below Limp Bizkit on the schedule and, in essence, opening for Fred Durst and company. The current lineup for Soundwave includes Machine Head, Trivium, System of a Down, Alter Bridge, Black Label Society, The Used (yes, apparently, they are still a band), Angels & Airwaves, A Day to Remember and more.

Love Tweeted her irritation about Hole’s slot on the festival, messaging the festival’s promoter, AJ Maddah. The Tweet stated, “What bloody flight of crazed fancy made you think we’d open for Limp Bizkit dude? No offence, that’s nuts.”

Love is a big fan of Twitter, as she’s used the social networking platform to comment on everything from the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind to the passing of Steve Jobs. Regarding Jobs, she recently Tweeted, “Sincerely rest in peace Steve Jobs. [I’ll] bet he can text us what its like over there. If anyone can do it, its Steve. God how we’ll miss you.”

Courtney Love has also announced she “will set the record straight” about her relationship with Cobain and the 1990s alternative grunge scene in an upcoming, yet-to-be-titled tell-all book, sets to arrive on William Morrow, an imprint of publisher Harper Collins. She’s billing it a “tell-all” memoir, and the autobiography is expected to come out as early as the end of this year.
