MEGADETH Show In Beijing Ends Abruptly After One Hour


According to The Beijinger, Megadeth’s show at the MasterCard Center ended abruptly after only an hour.

Signs indicate that the performance may have been shortened or stopped by officials, with “Skin of My Teeth,” played instrumental instead of with its usual lyrics. The band also did not play several of their best known songs including “Holy Wars” and “Angry Again.”

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine‘s comments at the end of the show may have indicated some kind of official action to stop. “Thank you for leaving so that we can come back and play again,” he said from the stage as the band waved  to the crowd after performing “Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?”.

 MEGADETH‘s fifteenth studio album, “Dystopia”, will be released on January 22, 2016. Album was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennessee and was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS and GOJIRA.
