Megadeth kicks Jason Newsted off Australian shows

Wednesday, February 05, 2014 9:48 AM PT


Poor Jason

Perhaps still lashing out at all things Metallica, Dave Mustaine and Megadeth have reportedly had Newsted (featuring ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted) removed from the bill for the band's forthcoming "Sidewave" shows in Australia. Whitechapel will now step in to fill the vacancy. Here's the official word from festival organizers:

"At the request of Megadeth, Newsted will not be playing the [February 25 and February 27] Sidewave shows and instead will be replaced by Whitechapel."


UPDATE: Megadeth tour manager Jim Carroccio tells ABC News Radio that Dave Mustaine was not involved in the decision to remove Newsted from the bill. Carroccio had the following to say:

"Dave Mustaine is not responsible for booting Newsted off. Dave did not put him on the bill and did not take him off the bill. Dave submitted a list of bands he was comfortable with and the promoter ignored the list. Dave and Jason are friends, this has blown up into something silly."

Dave probably thinks that Whitechapel is some Christian rock group.

And I though Echo Brain was a bad name for his band, now he's just stopped trying.

I'm eating one of those new Subway Chicken Enchilada Melts with the Fritos and shit on it. Pretty legit, but get it on something other than the flatbread. I suggest the garlic bread or Italian herbs & cheese. I fully expect to be shitting blood later.

From everything I've read Mustaine is a dick. Newsted isn't breaking any ground but it's cool to see him out there again.

So hilarious watching Dave tell Lars in that awful documentary Some Kind of Monster that he feels his entire career is a mistake in comparison to Metallica. Like what a gutless chump, sure your fans loved that.

This article is pathetic. He has been touring with Newsted for quite awhile now. He didn't "kick him off"
and it has nothing to do with Metallica.
It seems lambgoat and that gay arnold are posting Metallica articles almost daily just for views.
No surprise this site is full of new jacks.

You mean he was being honest? Yes his fans did love that actually. Considering Megadeth has way more good songs in their catalog than Metallica, I'd say that pushed him to make better music than them fool.
