MEGADETH was forced to cancel the remaining two shows on its European tour after David Ellefson broke his foot before band’s concert in Hungary.
MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine explaining in a video message (see below): “Our bass player’s 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.”
Mustaine also addressed the crowd in Hungary: “I’ve got some bad news I have to tell you. David Ellefson has fallen and has injured himself. He had to go to the hospital and he’s unable to play. So we’re gonna try and figure out when we can reschedule and come back for you guys. It’s with really heavy hearts that we have to do this, but he can’t play; he’s unable to do this. Hold on to your tickets. We’re gonna be back and we’re gonna make it up to you guys. You guys know David Ellefson. He would do it if he can. We love you very, very much.”
