Newsted will not be playing any shows this month or next.
That’s the word from the band’s own social networks, indicating Newsted will no longer be making the trek to Australia for the Soundwave festival.
That fest kicks off days from now.
“The Newsted Band will not be appearing or performing live in February or March 2014,” says the message, posted online this morning.
Since the post, Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah has posted a message on Twitter saying that he is “trying to find Newsted and figure out what is going on.”
He added: “The band’s equipment just arrived in Brisbane so not sure what’s up.”
He later added: “I can’t get hold of any of [Jason’s] people. [I am] hoping that is because he is on the plane [on his way to Australia]!”
