Newsted has now officially backed out of the Soundwave Festival in Australia this month, issuing a statement today on the decision.
“Due to private and personal circumstances, we sincerely regret to inform you that the Newsted band is unable to perform in February and March as scheduled.
“Our deepest apologies for any inconvenience to you. We are all gutted by this turn of events,” says the statement.
Fuck, that sounds bad. As bad as it can get, actually. We hope those affected champion through and will be OK.
“Our hope is that we will have another opportunity to share our heavy music with you all again sometime in the near future. I’m sorry, sisters and brothers, We were really looking forward to these shows too.”
