Metal warriors Megadeth had to cancel a planned show in Tel Aviv, Israel, scheduled for today, Wednesday, August 6, due to the tension and strife that is enveloping the region.
The band's leader Dave Mustaine had previously said that the band would not cancel the gig, but now, he has no choice, as the show at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Center was canceled by powers-that-be.
A post on the band's website read as follows: "Due to an inability to confirm the guaranteed passage of the band and their gear into Tel Aviv in time for the show, the upcoming Megadeth concert, scheduled for Wednesday, August 6, 2014, has been canceled. The band was looking forward to this concert and is disappointed they will not be able to put on the show for their fans, but expects to return to Tel Aviv on their next international tour."
