Soundwave Touring have confirmed that at the request of Megadeth, Newsted will not be performing at the Melbourne and Sydney sidewaves. Every year, bands are recruited to tour throughout Australia for the Soundwave Festival. Many bands take the opportunity to play extra 'Sidewave' shows while they're traveling around the country, but Jason Newsted's solo band has been booted from two Megadeth side shows "at the request" of the band.

Details aren't clear as to why Megadeth kicked Newsted off their February 25th Sydney and February 27th Melbourne Sidewave shows. Dave Mustaine and Jason Newsted have both been members of Metallica in the past. However, Newsted and Megadeth did seem to get along amiably during this past summer's Gigantour, even sharing the stage during the final show. Meanwhile, deathcore act Whitechapel has been recruited to take Newsted's opening slot.

The official Soundwave Festival website reads: "At the request of Megadeth, Newsted will not be playing the below sidewaves and instead will be replaced by Whitechapel."




Dave Mustaine has denied that there is any bad blood between him and Newsted. Responding to a fan on a Facebook post about the lineup change, Mustaine writes: "Look, I'm disappointed too. I explained to Jason Newsted this morning. We didn't put him on the show and we didn't kick him off the show. He understands, why don't you?"

In a follow-up comment, Mustaine added: "I love our Australian fans and I love Jason too. This is all a huge misunderstanding."

Fuck sake, Dave.

Get back on the drugs and do music like on Rust in Peace again.

So, if there's no bad blood and Newsted simply wasn't put on the show, why did they advertise that Newsted would be on it and why isn't Dave telling us why he wasn't put on the show?

Something very suspicious about this...

There is something we don't know about here.

What the fuck!

Newsted may suck musically but this doesn't seem very professional or respectful.

Bad Mustaine, bad!
LeChron James - 07.02.2014 at 01:23  
Oh Mustaine, what are we gonna do with you?

Megadrama - I really like that one!

This was even in the paper today. Just shows how big Megadeth are.
Coolingsrock - 09.02.2014 at 17:35  
If Dave is seriously thinking about Megadeth's future, then he really needs to write some material that doesn't sound like it is being played off my local AM radio station. Anyways, I'm sure this Newsted news is nothing.
