Anyone attending Motörhead’s upcoming Motörboat cruise this month will be missing Megadeth.
The band’s backed out for medical reasons.
In their place, heavy metal all-star band Metal Allegiance — boasting Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Chris Broderick — has been added to the September 22 through September 26 boat trip.
Metal Alleguance will features Down’s Philip Anselmo, Anthrax’s Joey Belladonna and Testament’s Chuck Billy with guitarists Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Mark Zavon (Kill Devil Hill), bassists Frank Bello (Anthrax), Rex Brown (Kill Devil Hill) and drummers Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Mike Portnoy.
“Due to complications arising from a previous cervical spine surgery, and upon his doctor’s strict recommendations, Dave Mustaine has canceled all performances for the next eight weeks. With rest and treatment, he is expected to recover and resume performing soon. The band was looking forward to the concerts and cruise, and is disappointed that they will not be able to see their fans. Megadeth expects to return to the road and will see their fans soon!”
