MEGADETH Plays Special 'Music Drives Us' Acoustic Show At Boston's Hard Rock Café (Video)December 20, 2016
MEGADETH played a special acoustic show on Friday, December 16 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston. This rare acoustic appearance was part of Ernie Boch Jr.'s Music Drives Us fundraising series.
Music Drives Us is a local charity connected to various youth music programs in New England.
MEGADETH's performance was billed as "Thrashing Through The Snow", and tickets were $100. VIP passes were priced at $250, and included an "eat-and-greet" with Mustaine before the show. Proceeds from the event support Music Drives Us "and their mission of keeping music in New England schools."
MEGADETH recently completed a month-long U.S. tour with AMON AMARTH, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, METAL CHURCH and BUTCHER BABIES.
The band is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Dystopia", which came out in January.
A few years ago, Mustaine funded a soup kitchen in Haiti. He stated at the time: "I really am trying to live my life differently today, and part of that was in finding something to believe in.
"One of the things that has happened since I started this transformation is getting involved with helping widows and orphans, and helping the homeless...
"I was approached with an opportunity, and thanks to your unwavering support, my family and I have been able to fund a soup kitchen in Haiti with a ministry called Outside The Bowl."
