WB1G8752Due to the passing of Dave Ellefson’s brother earlier this week, Megadeth has decided to cancel all immediate touring plans and won’t hit the road again until June 20th when their tour picks up in Montebello, QC for the Amnesia Rockfest. This sadly means no Deth for yours truly at Hellfest, but I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to Dave and his family.

Full statement from Megadeth.com can be viewed below and the list of dates that will go ahead can be found here.

Los Angeles, CA (May 21, 2014) – Megadeth has cancelled immediate tour plans as bassist David Ellefson and his family mourn the loss of his brother, who passed away on May 19, in Minneapolis, Minn. after battling cancer. A private family funeral service will be held.

The band sends their deepest condolences and prayers to David during this time and ask that the fans please do the same.
