Megadeth Kick Newsted Off Soundwave 2014 Shows, Feud Rumored
We might have a new metal feud coming up on the horizon, as Jason Newsted and his band got kicked off two Soundwave 2014 sideshows by a personal request from Megadeth, specifically frontman Dave Mustaine.

A surprising official statement appeared on the festival's website, briefly noting, "At the request of Megadeth, Newsted will not be playing the below sidewaves and instead will be replaced by Whitechapel."

A feud between Dave and Jason was what popped up to a greater portion of the metal community. The Metal Hammer crew decided to research the matter, finding additional details at organizer AJ Maddah's Twitter account.

As Maddah confirmed, the request to kick Newsted off the bill was made personally by Mustaine, but it's still unknown whether the two got involved in any kind or argument. "Something has certainly gone down although we have no details," AJ said, adding in a separate tweet that "maybe there is a problem between managers or agents."

What makes the situation additionally surprising is the fact that Dave and Jason had a very friendly relationship until recently, even hitting the road together on last year's Gigantour.

The critical concerts listed include a Sydney show on February 25 and a Melbourne performance two days later. Apart from Megadeth and Whitechapel, Volbeat are also scheduled to perform.
