Megadeth has announced tour dates in Greece for June 17th and 18th in Athens and Thessaloniki, but the band has threatened to cancel these dates due to Rotting Christ being on the bill. A member of the Megadeth forum's, nicknamed "April 3rd" posted:
April3rd: "Well, Megadeth will be playing Greece this summer. Both Athens and Thessaloniki. Although it is not yet on the Killing Road the company that organizes the concert announced that the support act for the gig in Athens will be the Greek black metal band Rotting Christ. We all know Dave's beliefs and his opinion about black metal. Rotting Christ, as you can easily understand, don't actually go to church every Sunday, instead they had taken part in the 'Fuck Christ Tour' along with Mayhem and other Satanic bands a few years ago. Hey, Dave, do you mind them opening for you?"
Dave Mustaine: "Well, if they are on it, I certainly don't want to kick them off. We will just have to pass and play Greece another time or place. I have informed my management and they know what I feel."
