MEGADETH leader Dave Mustaine reprimanded an overzealous security guard at the band’s May 6 concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Before launching into the song “Wolf”, Mustaine – who lives in the Nashville suburb of Franklin – said into the microphone, “Hey, Mr. Security. You’re here. Stop interfering with our show. Okay? You don’t have to get on the fucking barricade and hitting people. Everybody’s having fun. Calm down or I’m asking you to get out of the pit. Do you understand me? Do we have a fucking deal here? Don’t do it again.
He then walked away from the microphone for a few seconds before coming back and addressing the crowd. “I’m sorry, guys,” he said. “I just don’t want your show fucked up by a bunch of fucking people who don’t know why they’re here.”
last september, Mustaine made headlines when he issued mask mandates at a concert in New Jersey, calling them “tyranny.” The 60-year-old guitarist/singer, who has garnered a good deal of media attention over the years for his political thoughts, mentioned schools and medical facilities during his anti-mask rant, which ended by telling fans, “We have the power to change things.”
