Mustaine was a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony on April 12th. The classical special concert, billed as Symphony Interrupted, took place at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, California. The San Diego Union-Tribune has posted more rehearsal footage online here
Audience members were not allowed to film the concert, but footage continues to surface online:
Following the event, Mustaine posted the following message on Facebook:
"I sooo badly want to say thank you for being here at the first Symphony Interrupted.
To all the fans that were not able to attend, don't worry, there will be another Symphony Interrupted and this being the first and all, we have already started to plan on how to make it even more enjoyable.
Thanks to all the San Diego Symphony people, especially Ken-David Masur and Tommy Phillips, to the press and promotion, my endorsers; Dean Guitars for the StradiVMNT and Marshall Amplification for the JVM 410 and Dave Mustaine DMB 1960 2 x 12" cabinet. I also want to thank my management, my staff, and Mrs. Anne Campbell and Dave Campbell for making this happen.
Last night was an experiment; a challenge that I was up for, and continuing to improve myself for this show has already made me write ideas that are more twisting and turning, than the straight-ahead songs like 'Skin O' My Teeth' or 'A Tout Le Monde'.
We did not record the show because we knew I was going to be still getting used to this whole thing, that I would have a little getting used to this new environment, as well as following Ken-David do to me, what appears to be playing air drums. I was a fish out of water, but we learn so much from 'doing' the songs that it is just a short matter of time until we start 'being' the songs.
I want everyone to hear this venture with everything just right.
Having spent 34 years touring and playing 'live' makes it pretty easy to go out and do what you have always done.
For the next 'Symphony Interrupted', as Frank Sinatra said, 'The best is yet to come!'"
