Megadeth cancel remaining two European shows

Megadeth have been forced to cancel the remainder of their European tour in light of bassist David Ellefson breaking his foot on Friday night.

The injury resulted in the band calling off their show at Rockmaraton in Hungary. They also had to pull out of their planned Harley Days performance in Slovakia on Saturday night, and have confirmed they won’t appear at tonight’s (July 17) Masters Of Rock festival in the Czech Republic.

Frontman Dave Mustaine says in a video message: “I want to let all our fans in the Czech Republic know that our performance tonight at the Masters Of Rock has been cancelled. Our bass player received a severe break to his foot. I’m very, very sorry to tell you this but we will make it up to you next summer. Please hang in there and stay metal.”
