MEGADETH - Cancel Australian Tour Dates2014-02-10
Problems are not over for Megadeth. After the unclear situation of Newsted being booted out of the Soundwave sideshows, now the band has cancelled their Australian tour dates. Well, that was messy.
Dave Mustaine states: "Due to circumstances beyond its control, unfortunately Megadeth has to cancel their Australian dates. Megadeth's decision is unrelated to the fact that Jason Newsted is performing at Soundwave. Jason and I spoke recently and continue to be friends."
He continues: "All I asked for was an apology for blaming me for something I didn't do. I am still willing to play, but the promoter would rather not apologize and prefers to say I asked him to lie, which I didn't. Am I the only one that sees how easy it is to fix this? The AJ Maddah that I know is a wise and caring man, and I don't know what has happened to my old friend. My bags are packed Aussie fans."
As for Newsted, the band is playing the sideshows with Testament now. As we know, there are always two sides to every story. What do you think?
