Megadeth Cancel Soundwave Tour After Not Getting Apology From Organizer
The story that unnecessarily grabbed headlines for the past few days just received yet another plot twist, as Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine confirmed the band's cancelation of Australian Soundwave tour.

As reported, the event organizer initially announced kicking Newsted off two festival sideshows, stressing it was a personal request from Mustaine. Dave had since denied making such a demand and has requested an apology from organizer AJ Maddah.

The frontman allegedly never got the apology, resulting in a decision to pull Megadeth off Soundwave.

"Due to circumstances beyond its control, unfortunately Megadeth has to cancel their Australian dates," the announcement reads. "Megadeth's decision is unrelated to the fact that Jason Newsted is performing at Soundwave. Jason and I spoke recently and continue to be friends. - Dave Mustaine, Megadeth"

Mustaine issued a follow-up statement via his Facebook page, noting, "All I asked for was an apology for blaming me for something I didn't do. I am still willing to play, but the promoter would rather not apologize and prefers to say I asked him to lie, which I didn't. Am I the only one that sees how easy it is to fix this? The AJ Maddah that I know is a wise and caring man, and I don't know what has happened to my old friend. My bags are packed Aussie fans."

Maddah had since addressed Dave via Twitter, saying that although Mustaine's family is "like his own," he's "not sure where and how you believe you are owed an apology. And if you are, it should be from your own reps!"

"So here it is Dave. I apologize for whatever slight you think I have done you," AJ added. Whether or not this apology is enough yet remains to be seen.
