Megadeth Cancel Australian Tour Dates

Share This:

Megadeth frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine has announced via the band’s Facebook page and website that Megadeth will be cancelling their Australian tour dates.

The message on Megadeth’s website and Facebook page reads as follows:

“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”

The band also tweeted regarding the cancellation of the tour.

Soundwave head honcho AJ Maddah also tweeted about some Soundwave issues not long before Megadeth’s announcement, but it’s uncertain whether they actually relate to Megadeth.




When asked if there would be a replacement headline act this close to the festival, Maddah replied that some of the other bands would play longer set times.
