By now, you should’ve read somewhere that Dave Mustaine will soon be appearing with the San Diego Symphony for a performance of epic proportions.
Well, we’ve got even more details now about “Symphony Interrupted,” the collabo that goes down at the Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego April 12.
“Dave Mustaine will be a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony in April, 2014,” says an update on Fecesbook.
“The classical special concert…[is a] truly unique concert event,” the statement reads, as “master guitarist Dave Mustaine of the thrash-metal pioneers Megadeth brings his crunchy and energetic sensibility to the great works of classical music which have inspired him over the course of his Grammy-nominated, multi platinum-selling career.
“When Dave Mustaine performs the virtuosic ‘Summer’ and ‘Winter’ movements from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and Bach’s classic ‘Air’ on the G string, you will see a truly different side of ‘metal.’”
Indeed. Let’s be honest. The first metal musicians were classical artists anyways.
“The San Diego Symphony will then wow you in the second half of the program with Antonín Dvorák‘s famous New World Symphony. Following the Dvorak will be Richard Wagner’s ‘Ride of the Valkyries,’ and who knows… someone might just feel inclined to walk back on stage to rejoin the members of the San Diego Symphony in an encore performance where heavy-metallic sparks are sure to fly!”
Or homophobic rants.
