Megadeth were forced to cut a concert in Paraguay short this weekend after performing just five songs when fans broke through security and almost killed one woman.

The band was performing at the Sport Colombia stadium in Asuncion, Paraguay on Saturday night (August 20th) and after the show frontman Dave Mustaine tweeted the following explanation for cutting it short:

"Dear Paraguay, after all three barricades broke and hundreds of fans crushed three security guards, almost killing one female fan, we regretfully had to cancel the show.

"Please understand that your safety is just as important as ours and after all the security went in the pit someone ran onto the stage, a bottle was thrown, and we'll let you know as soon as we can reschedule and come back.

"This is out of our hands and we will make sure when we return to use a different venue, security, and promoter. Again, Lo siento mucho."
