Megadeth Cancel Soundwave

by Paul Cashmere on February 10, 2014

in Live,News

Megadeth have pulled out of Soundwave blaming the speeding of false information about Dave Mustaine’s relationship with Jason Newsted as the reason for the withdrawal. However, promoter AJ Maddah has a different view of the situation.

In a statement at the band’s Facebook page Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine wrote, “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”.

Soon after making the statement Mustaine posted a further comment saying his bags were packed and he still wanted to play.

“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.

AJ Maddah commented, “I don’t like being asked to lie. Nor do I like being extorted. But at the same time I don’t want to lose an act off the festival. ‪#dilemma”.

To Dave Mustaine he posted, “‪@DaveMustaine I realise that you fired your agent and manager and appointed new ones during the process…‪” adding ”@DaveMustaine Dave, we have been friends for a long time and I love you. Your family is like my own”.

‪”@DaveMustaine All you are doing by cancelling is punishing the fans who have had no part in any of this”.
