Soundwave Loses Megadeth

156857_10151307618307330_1408021049_nThrash pioneers Megadeth have let it be known that they’re cancelling not only their Soundwave dates, but all their Australian shows. Rumours abound that this has something to do with an alleged feud between Singer Dave Mustaine and Jason Newsted (formerly of Metallica, now of, well, Newsted). However, Mustaine denied this on the band’s Facebook page, saying that he and Newsted “…spoke recently and continue to be friends.” Given that this statement follows allegations that Mustaine booted Newsted off a shared Sidewaves run with Megadeth and Volbeat, it’s probably worth taking with a pinch of salt.

Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah has tweeted that it’s too late to sub in another headlining band, and instead the other bands will play longer sets, with Mastodon now pulling the last slot on the metal stage.
