Megadeth frontman, Dave Mustaine, has posted the following message on the band's official forum to explain why the concert in Israel was cut short:
What happened from my point of view, and I was center stage, was we started playing Blackmail The Universe and after that song was about half way through, the barricade broke and kids fell on top of each other. Security tried to get them stood back up, the barricade got stood back up, they brought in logs and more barricades to reinforce it. And the police said it wasn't good enough.
After the 4th song I got a note to "please stop", and Shawn had already counted into the 5th song. So we played 5 songs and at the end of the 5th song it was implied that "we have to fix the barricade for your safety".
They determined, the police who had approved the barricade before the show, after the barricade got broken that they were cancelling the show, "please leave now".
None of the blame needs to be assigned to anyone. Other than just the fans being great fans and being excited as hell, and the barricade not being able to handle the pressure.
You are wonderful fans and I hope to see you all again.
