(Classic Rock) Dio Disciples singer Toby Jepson says he's sorry for fans after his band travelled 15,000 miles to play the Metal Open Air Festival in Brazil last weekend only to discover 30 bands had pulled out and even the sound and light companies had gone home.

The three-day event was billed as South America's answer to the successful Wacken Open Air extravaganza in Germany.

But a stack of big names including headliners the Rock-N-'Roll Allstars plus Saxon, Anthrax and Blind Guardian subsequently refused to appear, reporting they hadn't been paid. Another headliner, Venom, said their South American work visas had been mistakenly sent to Africa! After a handful of acts including first-night headliners Megadeth had performed seven hours late, the plug was finally pulled. more on this story
