Jason Newsted (ex-Metallica, VOIVOD, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM) was recently forced off Gigantour before the trek hit Canada. He wrote on Facebook:
"I'd been feeling a bit under the weather while performing the most recent Gigantour shows so I went to the doctor and I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia! So under doctor's orders, I'm taking a week to rebuild...my apologies to our Canadian brothers and sisters in regions where we will not be appearing this week. I'm gonna work on keeping me alive so together we can keep the metal alive!"
Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine responded last week:
"I hope you are feeling better Jason Newsted. We miss you and are ready to do (METALLICA's) 'Metal Militia' when you get back."
