Stereophonics advise Kanye West to tweet less

Stereophonics have advised Kanye West to "tweet less".

The 39-year-old rapper's last-minute gig at Webster Hall in New York was axed last week after thousands of fans flocked to the streets outside the venue, causing chaos in the East Village, and Stereophonics blamed Kanye for tweeting about it.

Speaking to Absolute Radio's Pete Donaldson backstage at the Isle of Wight Festival, frontman Kelly Jones quipped: "I think it would be impossible for him to do anything secret wouldn't it? Maybe tweet less and then people don't know where you are."

And Kelly admitted that his band had their own trouble when they staged a secret gig recently as none of their equipment was working.

He added: "I think it was even secret to us because we got there and nothing was working but it was a good laugh. It just reminded us of playing the gigs that we always played to be honest - we always used to play pubs."

Kanye is renowned for his Twitter rants - where he has lashed out at stars including Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose and Taylor Swift - but previously admitted he was "deeply, deeply, deeply" apologetic about bringing Wiz's son into his feud with the rapper.

The 'Bound 2' hitmaker became embroiled in a Twitter spat in January after he mistakenly thought Wiz - who has three-year-old son Sebastian with ex-wife Amber - had dissed his spouse Kim Kardashian West but Kanye regrets referring to his rival's little boy in their explosive exchange.

Kanye - who has two children with Kim - said: "I really want to stress the amount of respect that I have for parents.

"There is no concept of anyone beating up on someone else's child or that type of concept. So every day I feel more deeply, deeply, deeply apologetic about that concept, because I only want to put out positive, positive, positive concepts."
