Last night (July 16), Megadeth’s David Ellefson broke his foot before the band’s planned set at the Rockmaraton Festival in Dunaujvaros, Hungary. As a result, that performance was cancelled, along with the remaining dates on their European tour.
Rockmaraton issued the following statement (translated by TeamRock):
“The bassist has a foot bone fracture and Megadeth are unable to perform. Organizers immediately called an ambulance and Ellefson was transported to St. Pantaleon hospital where his foot was placed in a cast.
Despite the injury, he was in a good mood and was taking selfies with the paramedics on the way back to the venue when it still seemed that the band would perform.
Lead singer Dave Mustaine decided to cancel the show despite Ellefson’s desire to perform with his foot in a cast. Mustaine then went on stage to announce the cancellation to the crowd.”
