MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently flipped out on someone in JUDAS PRIEST‘s road crew midway through his band’s set at Spain’s Barcelona Rock Fest this past Saturday (July 2).
The Barcelona Rock Fest event features two identical main stages set up side by side (Stage Rock on the left and Stage Fest on the right). This setup is meant to ease artist transition throughout the festival and eliminate having to choose between two bands that are playing at the same time. Hence, when one band is playing the road crew prepares the other stage for the next band.
Mid-way through MEGADETH‘s set, an obviously fed-up Mustaine stopped the concert and called out the crew on the other main stage which was setting up JUDAS PRIEST‘s upcoming performance.
“We’ll wait till he’s done checking his guitar over there,” Dave said into the microphone.
Mustaine then proceeded to flip the bird at a crew member, and said: “The last night of the tour — we went all the way to the last fucking night, and then some pussy over on the stage next to us has to start playing while we’re playing. How fucking pathetic, amateur piece of shit you are.”
After a brief pause, Dave said: “Can we proceed now?” and then muttered under his breath, “Fucking cunt”, before breaking into “Symphony Of Destruction“.
