Megadeth - Cancel Australian Tour Dates


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?

So Dave. Your happy to let your fans down because you haven't had an apology? Really? You say its easy to fix this. Your right, it is. Put your stupid pride to oneside for once and think of the fans. Why do you always have to get your own way? If it wasn't for the fans where would you be? Stop being a baby and do your job.

Yep, very poor form to cancel at the last moment when a lot of fans bought tickets to see them. And in the case of Soundwave, there is no refund, not that it's a huge deal because there are so many other good bands. But still, a lot of people are going to feel let down and ripped off. Hopefully everyone involved, especially Dave, can sort this out and just go ahead with what they previously agreed to. Not sure it will happen though.

Or Mustaine is upset by the fact that Newsted found a way in anyway? Too bad I'm not living in Australia, because Testament + Newsted would be one hell of a show...

Loving the vitriol coming from the fans on the Facebook page. I'd be amazed if Dave has a single real friend in the world these days.

He does have a single 'real' friend in the world these days... It's his mirror image.

"Dave, please grow back some balls and stop acting like a schoolgirl. Your last few albums have sucked and now you're more famous for being a Bible-thumping conspiracy nut asshole than a guitarist and songwriter!!"

That one basically sums it up for me

Wow...I did say that there was more to this story than we were being told when Newsted suddenly weren't on the bill, but I wasn't expecting this!

I'll give credit to Dave for sticking to the truth, but seriously? The shows aren't happening because the promoter won't apologise to Dave for something he didn't do? Dumb reason to cancel a tour, no matter whose fault it really is!

Well, the guy apologized over twitter actually. If he really doesn't play even after this, I'd advise him to never go to Australia again.

Last time I checked Diamond Dave was one "Lee Roth" not MegaDave.
