Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently fired back at the people who object to his stage banter. He said that they shouldn’t be attending his band’s concerts anyway.
Dave Mustaine sends a message to the fans
The 60-year-old guitarist and vocalist has often made some controversial political remarks during Megadeth’s performance on Tuesday, April 12 at Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado as part of the group’s “The Metal Tour Of The Year” with Lamb of God. He had some strong words for his critics in a video clip that emerged online.
Mustaine said: “The last couple of nights I’ve been talking from the stage. It’s been a long time, and we’ve all been waiting for live music again. And there’s some people who have taken exception to some things that I’ve said from the stage the last couple of nights. And I thought to myself, ‘Well, if you don’t like what I’m saying, why are you at a Megadeth concert?’ If you don’t like what I’m saying, f**k you. First Amendment, right? Freedom of speech. F**k you. That’s what I say. Don’t take shit from anybody ever.”
Just a few days ago, during Megadeth’s concert on Sunday, April 10 at the Tucson Arena in Tucson, Arizona, Mustaine claimed that he “peed on the floor” of the White House bathroom three decades ago.
Megadeth new album, “The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead”, is tentatively due on July 8. The follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia” features a cover of Dead Kennedys” “Police Truck” and Sammy Hagar’s “This Planet’s On Fire”, the latter of which includes vocals from Hagar himself.
