MEGADETH har tvingats ställa in samtliga spelningar under den kommande månaden, inklusive den på SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL.
Sweden Rock Festival meddelar:
“We have just been informed that Megadeth has canceled all their concerts for the coming month, including their scheduled show at this years Sweden Rock Festival. The following is the official statement from the band:
“Megadeth has canceled immediate tour plans as bassist David Ellefson and his family mourn the loss of his brother, who passed away on May 19, in Minneapolis, Minn. after battling cancer. A private family funeral service will be held. The band sends their deepest condolences and prayers to David during this time and ask that the fans please do the same.”
Sweden Rock, the band and their agent are very sorry that the Sweden Rock concert cannot be performed as planned.
We are now hard at work to find a replacement, but we ask for our guest’s understanding in that artists of this caliber tend to fill their schedules months in advance and that it will most likely be very difficult to find a replacement as popular and well known as Megadeth with such short notice.”
