DAVE MUSTAINE Admonishes Security Guard At Nashville Concert: ‘Cool It Or I’ll Ask For You To Be Taken Out Of The Pit’

MEGADETH leader Dave Mustaine admonished an overzealous security guard at the band’s May 6 concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Before launching into the song “She-Wolf”, Mustaine — who lives in the Nashville suburb of Franklin — said into the microphone: “Hey, Mister Security Dude. You there.

Stop interfering with our show. Okay? You don’t need to go up on the fucking barricade and point at people.

Everybody’s having fun. Cool it or I’ll ask for you to be taken out of the pit. Do you understand me?

Do we have a fucking understanding here? Don’t do it again.” He then walked away from the mic for a few seconds before returning and addressing the crowd. “I’m sorry, you guys,” he said. “It’s just I don’t want your show to be fucked with by a bunch of fucking people that don’t know why they’re here.”

Last September, Mustaine made headlines when he hit out at mask mandates during a concert in New Jersey, branding them a form of “tyranny.” The 60-year-old guitarist/vocalist, who has attracted a fair amount of media attention over the years for his political thoughts, mentioned schools and medical facilities during his anti-mask rant, which ended with him telling fans: “We have the power to change things.” MEGADETH is currently on the road in North America with LAMB OF GOD as part of what is being called “The Metal Tour Of The Year”. Also appearing on the bill are TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES.

James LoMenzo is playing bass for MEGADETH on the second U.S. leg of “The Metal Tour Of The Year”. LoMenzo joined MEGADETH in 2006 and appeared on two of the group’s studio albums, 2007’s “United Abominations” and 2009’s “Endgame”. He was fired from the band in 2010 and replaced with returning original MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson. MEGADETH‘s new album, “The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead”, is tentatively due on July 8.

The follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia” features a cover of DEAD KENNEDYS“Police Truck” and Sammy Hagar‘s “This Planet’s On Fire”, the latter of which includes vocals from Hagar himself. The bass tracks on “The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead” were laid down by Steve DiGiorgio, widely renowned as a pioneer on the fretless bass in heavy metal music, having played with TESTAMENT, DEATH and SADUS, among others. Within his genre, Steve is respected for his playing skills, versatility and incredible technique.

He has more than 40 studio album recordings and over 20 years of touring the world.
