Megadeth took some time off during their tour to visit the Blarney Stone in Cork, Ireland. Footage of Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson visiting the location can be viewed below. The band also issued the following statement:

"Video footage of David Ellefson and Dave Mustaine visiting the infamous Blarney Stone in Cork, Ireland during the band's current European tour can be viewed below. The Blarney Stone (Irish: Cloch na Blarnan) is a block of bluestone built into the battlements of Blarney Castle, Blarney about 5 miles (8 km) from Cork, Ireland.

"According to legend, kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of gab (great eloquence or skill at flattery). The stone was set into a tower of the castle in 1446. The castle is a popular tourist site in Ireland, attracting visitors from all over the world to kiss the stone and tour the castle and its gardens."
