From the Australian promoter:

"Dave, we have been friends for a long time and I love you. Your family is like my own. But the only people being punished here are the fans.

We took instructions from your representatives and we acted on those instructions, as we would with any other artist.

I realise that you fired your agent and manager and appointed new ones during the process… And that there may have been misunderstandings or miscommunications, but none of those were at our end.

Despite all] of this, I sent you a statement regarding possible misunderstandings / miscommunications, apologising to fans, etc. … even though my people did everything by the book and correct protocol was undertaken getting approvals for supports. There are strings of emails supporting this, including ones forwarded with instructions to remove certain artists.

I am not sure where and how you believe you are owed an apology. And if you are, it should be from your own reps!

All you are doing by cancelling is punishing the fans who have had no part in any of this. Your reps approved your supports and sent clear instructions. They even approved artwork and press release. If you have a quarrel, or you were not consulted, then your issue is with your reps and not Australian reps or your old friend!

So here it is, Dave. I apologize for whatever slight you think I have done you.

So, does this mean tour is back on?”


And later...


"Nope. Total silence. Got a call from his agent apologising for his behaviour. That's about it."

That's an impressive level of dickheadery. Good man Dave.

Someone on Metal-archives said this Australian promoter was well known for being a shithead and was not surprised Mustaine reacted the way he did. The promoter probably put this up as damage control/trying to gain sympathy.

I'm still not ready to point the finger at Dave at this one. I do feel bad for the Australian fans though.

I wonder; Megadeth has done the Soundwave Festival at least a couple times plus if I'm right it used to be called Big Day Out and I know Megadeth has done that a few times. So it is not like this is a brand new festival and a brand new promoter, Dave and the promoter seem to know each other very well, to me that is what makes this so interesting and makes me point the finger more at Dave if anything

Dave has been a whiny douchebag bitch for decades (which is one of the reasons I've never been a Megadeth fan). This is not news.

He is an asshole, you can't deny that.

I don't need to like the person to like the music, but yes, Dave has hardly been the most agreeable person in forever.

I don't ever recall saying in this thread that he wasn't.
