Newsted off Megadeth Sidewave bill but fans want to know why




A press release sent out on Wednesday evening stated that for their upcoming Soundwave Sidewave shows "at the request of Megadeth, Newsted will no longer be playing the above sideshows" - referring to dates at the UNSW Roundhouse in Sydney and The Forum in Melbourne - "and will be replaced by White Chapel instead". Very simple but the wording, in addition to the fact that some fans specifically bought tickets to see Jason Newsted's band as well as Dave Mustaine's led to lots of questions being asked in social media very quickly.

After numerous fans expressed their displeasure at the news on an unrelated post on Mustaine's Facebook page he finally posted a reply, stating in several posts that he had nothing against Jason (Newsted) and it had all been "a huge misunderstanding".

Other fans asked the ever helpful AJ Maddah what he knew and he claimed nothing.


However, whatever the reason, Newsted appear to be off the bill
