DEMONICAL‘s Martin Schulman has issued the following statement on behalf of the "Accession To The Throne Tour 2010" tour-package: "We are very sorry to inform that we have been forced to cancel the scheduled show in Zagreb, Croatia, on Thursday February 25th featuring DEMONICAL, DEATHBOUND and MY OWN GRAVE. We are unable to arrange and obtain in time the documents and permissions needed for entering a non-EU country, hence we have no other option than to cancel the show. We are deeply sorry for this and the possible inconvenience it might cause to the fans and Bosko at Migrena Promotions (the Croatian promoter)."
MEGADETH founder and frontman Dave Mustaine has announced the return of original bassist David Ellefson (1983-2002) to the group. This reunion is appropriately timed to MEGADETH’s upcoming "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour which kicks off on March 01 in Spokane, WA. At these shows, MEGADETH will play their 1990 album "Rust In Peace" in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH favorites. "This shows the power of brotherly love and forgiveness", Mustaine says. "David Ellefson belongs in MEGADETH. Next we are going to show you the power of getting your asses kicked… HARD!" David Ellefson concurs: "This is a huge moment for all of us, band and fans alike. It is a great celebration of the music from one of the biggest landmark albums of our career." Ellefson will join Mustaine and MEGADETH band members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar) on tour in support of the group’s current CD "Endgame". "We’d like to thank James Lomenzo for several years of loyal service on the bass, and wish him the very best", Mustaine adds. For more information on MEGADETH, go to: www.megadeth.com
