The incident occurred this previous weekend on the fest in Parc de Can Zam, which options two side-by-side most important phases. Deep into Megadeth’s set, a guitar tech started soundchecking for Judas Priest’s impending efficiency on the opposite stage. Dave was having none of it.
The Megadeth chief isn’t recognized for mincing phrases, particularly when opposed — simply ask the overly aggressive safety guard who Mustaine blasted throughout a gig months in the past.
Right here, the scenario escalated after a visibly aggravated Dave jokingly informed the gang, “We’ll wait till he’s completed checking his guitar.” When the soundcheck persists, he then stormed to far facet of the stage to flip off the guitar tech. The group roared in approval.
A fuming Mustaine then returned to the mic: “Final night time of the tour — we went all the way in which to the final night time, after which some p**sy over on the stage subsequent to us has to start out taking part in whereas we’re taking part in. How f**king pathetic, beginner… piece of sh*t you might be.”
Prior to ripping by means of “Symphony of Destruction,” Dave went again to the sidestage yet another time to see on the wrongdoer, uttering “motherf**kers” into the mic earlier than launching into the track.
It’s undetermined if the tech in query was employed by Judas Priest or the competition, however we definitely hope there’s no beef between the Megadeth and Priest camps following the debacle.
In the meantime, Megadeth simply introduced the September 2nd launch date for his or her extremely anticipated new album, The Sick, the Dying… and the Lifeless!, whereas releasing the only “We’ll Be Again.” The band will embark on a US tour with 5 Finger Loss of life Punch in August, with tickets accessible by way of Ticketmaster.
