Megadeth Cannot Tour Like Other Big Bands
I was reading this morning on bravewords.com that Dave Mustain was talking about touring and the fact that Megadeth cannot tour like Metallica. Apparently Metallica will tour two weeks on and then take two off, to see their family. I guess that is one of the benefits of being the biggest band on the planet. I bet Dave Mustain wishes he was still in Metallica. Mustain says Megadeth jsut can’t do that,
When Metallica do their tours they like to do two weeks on and two weeks off, to spend time with their kids. We can’t afford that. We do four weeks on, sometimes five, then two weeks off. In order to do the two weeks on, two weeks off thing, we’d have to pick up shows in between – and I don’t know that that’s going to happen.”
The Big Four featuring Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax kicks back into high gear in September for their show at Yankee Stadium. It is expected that they will also hit the south and possibly the Midwest.
