Megadeth - Rocks Thrown At The Band In Metalfest Croatia


According to Venia-Mag.net, the final evening (June 5) of the first ever Croatian Metalfest Open Air ended up pretty badly for headliners Megadeth, who were forced to reduce their set after being thrown rocks at. The crowd is said to have been devastated because W.A.S.P. and Dark Tranquillity cancelled their sets due to technical problems and blamed Megadeth for it. Reportedly, W.A.S.P. and Megadeth had some arguments that led to the cancellation of the shows and the fans didn't approve of this.

Dark Tranquillity posted the following on their Facebook page: "To our Croatian fans: we're sorry for the cancellation of our show at today's Metalfest, but the festival changed the playing schedule around so that it would have been logistically and technically impossible for us to perform at the new time slot. We were really looking forward to the show and hope to return as soon as possible."

Megadeth, however, haven't released any official statement yet, but the band's Facebook page is filled with comments from Croatian fans apologizing for what happened. More details should be revealed soon.

I'm sorry, Zadar, but you seriously suck at organizing large events like Metalfest. Everybody can have a problem with drunken idiots, but this kind of stuff is happening way too often.

On the other side, if Dave really was such an asshole, go ahead, just aim better next time.

Agree, such a stupid behavior from those metallers...fuck off them! That's not what we metallers do to bands, we treat them with respect so they can be proud of fans and do great music! ...That whats music is all about!

According to people who were there, both Megadeth and WASP changed their minds and wanted the slot at 8PM, Megadeth got it, WASP got angry and left, this changed Dark Tranquillity's schedule and fans were pissed. Allegedly Megadeth weren't stoned (te-he), but booed off stage. Waiting for more people to confirm me this.

This is why Balkan can't have nice things.

Except for the fact that Mustaine is a big douchebag who gets bands banned from festivals just because is a christian wingnut. Honestly, he is probably the musician I respect the least, he's an immature asshole who can't wrap his head around other peoples beliefs. He has to learn that the world doesn't revolve around him. Also, Risk.

Get your facts straight. He didn't get bands banned from a festival but from a one off show they were headlining. Although I disagree with the reason he didn't want to play with those bands it's still up to him to decide who he wants to play with when it's his show.

I'd throw rocks at Wasp and Dark Tranquility so that they'd cancel and Megadeth would be able to perform longer.

Sorry, my bad. But I mean, grow the fuck up. If he wanted to get a christian band, or a Islamic band , or some other religion band banned from a concert just beacuse of what they sing about, he would be in some deep shit.

I hope this is true over stones. I did find this news post hilarious but rocks are a bit over the top. If this is true, i'd be boo'ing Megadeth too. I could care less about Megadeth or WASP but Dark Tranquility really got shafted on this one. They did nothing wrong but because they aren't a mega huge band like the other two, they got times shifted on them to the point that they couldn't even perform. A shame really, especially because DT is the better of the three bands IMO!

I always asked myself Why big bands never come to Croatia, Serbia or Bosnia. Now I know. We are so rude people, and after this I think that bands will traverse Balkan.

God please send me to UK, USA or any other country so I can enjoy music.
