Megadeth Cancels Soundwave Tour (Update: Mustaine still willing to Play)

Bad news for Megadeth fans, as the band pulled out of the Soundwave 2014 tour, with frontman Dave Mustaine releasing the following statement on the band’s facebook page:

“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”. – Dave Mustaine, Megadeth

UPDATE: Few minutes ago, Mustaine jumped on facebook again letting his Aussie fans know that he is still willing 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”.
