Earlier David Ellefson expressed an undue amount of excitement and happiness at the band’s return to India for Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Delhi – 2012 to NH7. This is what he had to say,
We are very excited about Megadeth’s return to India in October!! With the new albumTH1RT3EN and the recent twentieth anniversary of the Countdown To Extinction tours, we will be sure to have an extensive and varied song list for our fans to enjoy!
Echoing similarly excited sentiments, drummer Shawn Drover said, Playing India back in 2008 was an amazing and certainly unique experience, to say the least. It’s not everyday that I arrive to play a show and there are dancers and elephants waiting to greet you!!! The fans in India are so amazing as well, so it will be a thrill for Megadeth to return to India to perform for them once again.
