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."

Megadeth rule, but for (Rotting) Christ's sake, that is pathetic. Dave is allowed to express his views on religion, as should any other person or band.

Dave should definitly reconsider, as the fans want to see Megadeth. But I do agree that sh** like "Rotting Christ" and the "f*** Christ tour" is just stupid and it senselessly bashes Christianity just for attention. Nice try, RC, but I dont think your cute.

dude, im sooooo effing glad Mustaine took this stand. Now granite, it could be for publicity $$$ but look, at least Rotting Christ wont be getting the Megadeath fans cheese. I went to a haste the day show and all of the opening bands performances were grand, EXCEPT friggin Demiricous. THEY WERE TOTALLY JOCKING MOST OF THEIR STUFF FROM SLAYER, ESPECIALLY THE SOLOS. ONE WAS REIGN IN EFFING BLOOD. It sucked so bad. Word of wisdom, read the bible, i mean there is no proof that it is FAKE, and scientist have had test saying that time skipped time, two days i think it was. The Bible says that it skipped the EXACT time period, which means its proof Christianity is fool-proof and totally real. THX for reading.

Who the f*** cares. I wish Dave Mustaine would just stop with all this goddamn complaining. He complains about Metallica, and now Black Metal. Maybe at one point Dave was in Rotting Christ and they kicked him out too. It wouldnt surprise me, with the level of bullsh** flying out of his mouth. And also "Simon Peter" get YOUR f***in facts straight, because while the new pope was a priest, he was a member of the Hitler youth first, so shut the hell up. Oh and maybe Dave just forgot about the whole clash of the titans tour??? Megadeth f***ing played with Slayer - f***ing hypocrite.

Ok, looks like I need to say something now....

The new Pope, which apparently none of you know his name, it's Benedict XVI(the 16th, for those who don't know Roman numerals).

As a teen he, like MANY German youth, were forced into Hitler's Youth Army, whether they liked it or not. He escaped the Army and later became a priest, fastforward 40 years and now he's the Pope.

Anymore questions?
