MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has issued the following update:
"I just landed in Santiago, Chile and lemme tell you we are so pumped to be back here, it's sick!!!
"Last night in Buenos Aires, Argentina we had another of those once-in-a-lifetime shows, and the funny thing is that Chile and Argentina are so close together geographically that you can't come to one country and not play the other. And as far as the fans go, Chile has always been a proud audience, and we have always loved them, and they have always been up at the top of our list with the Argentinians.
"Which brings me to something very important, and that is loving our fans, and the idiots who spread rumors about us cancelling shows.
"On this tour we are going to several new countries, and some that we have only played once before. And never do we cancel a show once we are in the country, and in this case South America.
"You see, there has been a rumor floating around that we are not coming to Quito, Ecuador, and that is the biggest mountain of horse manure I have ever heard. It must have been started by someone who is very, very afraid of MEGS!
"I just want you to know that you better go get your tickets now! Because when we get there and you say, 'I don't have a ticket,' or 'I didn't trust you,' or 'I didn't believe that you were coming to this country,' it will be too late once the tickets are all gone. What does Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, have right now that Ecuador doesn't? Tickets to one of the best Megadeth concerts ever.
"I mean, if you are going to miss a concert, miss some other band, don't miss the 20th anniversary of 'Rust In Peace' because it won't be back here ever again."
