MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:"We just completed the 'United Abominations' world tour last night in Monterrey, Mexico. "Thank you to everyone who came out to see us, and who supported us from afar. "I will make a full report of what I though the last 1 1/2 years have been like; the last two weeks alone damn near killed me after getting a yellow fever vaccination to go to Manaus, Brazil alone. "I am not one to post much about how hard it is to tour, but I am sure when I get back from my rest period that you will understand why I have been nearly invisible the last few months. "I can't wait to get back home and get to work on TheLiveLine with my partners, as well as start the building of our new studio. "Hell, we need our own place to jam in when we start to reconvene and demo songs for the next record after the summer. "So, until I get back, thank you, thank you all." On July 10, Dave Mustaine will visit the Guitar Center store in Hollywood, California for a very special installment of "GC Sessions". More details will be revealed soon. Guitar Center Hollywood
