Mustaine Speaks Out About ‘Big Four’ Tour
The Megadeth man says “I don’t think that anyone would turn it down.” Read all about the potential ‘big four’ tour here!
Speaking on the Megadeth forum, Mustaine says: “Regarding rumors of the ‘Big Four’ touring, I have heard nothing about this, other than gossip, and I don’t think that anyone would turn it down, but there are a lot of things that would have to be worked out. A LOT!”
He went on to comment on the recent mudslinging from Slayer towards Megadeth and said: “I am having fun with this, and I hope not to hurt the tour (with Slayer) or the fans’ chance of seeing these two great bands because I have said something I shouldn’t have. I am aware that there are comments we all made in the past, but I have tried very, very hard not to make any comments about Slayer, other than their music and concerts, because it is none of my business, and I am much older now than I was when I said the regrettable things I said.
“I am aware that there is stuff out there that has been said about me; some of it is old, some of it is new. I am disappointed in the new comments, but I am going to remain professional and give Kerry and Tom and Slayer the benefit of the doubt and hope that it is just old stuff, and be the best tourmate that I can be. Either way, I pray for the guys in Slayer, although they may not want it, but I do. I pray that we’ll be friends again someday, I pray that the tour will be as much fun for them as it is for us, and I pray that they will be as happy as we are and more.
“Remember, three of the members in Megadeth were not even there for the ‘Clash Of The Titans’.
“So, here is to forgiveness, and hopefully being forgiven for past ‘stuff.’”
