October 5, 2007 - SLASH SENT OFF TO DRIVING SCHOOL & 2ND SYDNEY SHOW ADDED!
MEGADETH PACK GUITAR LEGEND SLASH OFF TO DRIVING SCHOOL AND ANNOUNCE 2ND & FINAL SYDNEY SHOW
The top hat wearing Velvet Revolver guitar hero and Guns & Roses founder Slash approached Megadeth 's bass player James Lomenzo at a Portland hotel lobby last week and blamed Megadeth for his driving woes. " I love the new album ( United Abominations ) so much that every time I drive I've got it crankin' in my car... I've gotten two speeding tickets thanks to you jerks and now I've got to go to fucking traffic school!" A nervous Lomenzo duly apologised for the inconvenience caused but stopped short of promising the band's next album will not be as amazing as this one!
In other great but not-quite-as-amusing Megadeth news, the band have announced a 2 nd and final Sydney show on Friday November 16 at Big Top, Luna Park. Megadeth will once again be ably supported by the all-star Gigantour line-up of Static X , Devildriver , Lacuna Coil and Bring Me The Horizon . The band's Perth and Adelaide shows are also expected to sell out within days.
Lomenzo will narrowly avoid crossing paths with Slash who will roll into town a couple of weeks later with supergroup Velvet Revolver .
MEGADETH / STATIC X / DEVILDRIVER / LACUNA COIL / BRING ME THE HORIZON...this is GIGANTOUR.
