Jason's new band Newsted was forced off the tour when he was diagnosed with the illness and has announced that the band will be back on the tour starting today in Everett, Wa.
He told fans yesterday, "I'm feeling a bit better, this pneumonia bug can last a few weeks sometimes... I gotta keep pushing... the show must go on! We'll be firing up the metal machine again beginning tomorrow (July 30th) in Everett, WA.
"We have a couple of very big weeks ahead with Gigantour and the release of our Heavy Metal Music LP on August 6th! Cheers & let's f****ing rock! See ya out there."
The Megadeth headed Gigantour also features Black Label Society, Hellyeah, Device and Death Division and will conclude on August 11th in Toronto.
