Megadeth's Gigantour Derailed By Extreme Weather

.
(hennemusic) Megadeth were forced to cancel their Gigantour set Tuesday night as Oklahoma City was hit by extreme weather. Intense rain and lightning forced Device to skip their set, and then shortly before Megadeth were to take the stage, a bolt of lightning struck an Oklahoma City transformer, cutting power to the Zoo Amphitheatre entirely.

Dave Mustaine kept fans up to date on Twitter, writing, "OKC just can't get a break. It's pouring down rain & lightning is everywhere. Device was pulled. This sucks!"

"I give up...lightning hit a city transformer and the city went dark," wrote Mustaine later, followed by "We are trying to wait it out, but they say it will be hours, if not days until it's fixed."

After a 45-minute wait, the audience was advised that Megadeth would be unable to perform. more on this story
