MANILA – American thrash metal band Megadeth will not be performing here this week as initially scheduled, organizers announced.

According to Pulp Live World, Megadeth has postponed its shows in Manila and Indonesia until August 2014 or after Ramadan.

In a post on its Facebook page on Wednesday, Pulp Live World said all tickets purchased for Megadeth’s March 7 concert at the World Trade Center in Pasay City will be honored on the rescheduled date, which has yet to be finalized.

“We understand this could happen in August or October 2014,” it said.

Pulp Live World added that ticketholders “will be given special perks by the promoter such as open bar access and first entry to the venue should you decide to hold on to your tickets.”

“If you wish to refund your tickets, please return the ticket in its complete form to SM Tickets and the ticketing company will process your refund,” it said.

“Once again our sincere apologies for this delay. We withheld our announcement in the hope that the band would have given us an exact date.”

Megadeth last visited Manila in July 2012, when they also held a concert at the World Trade Center.

The band is known for songs such as “The Skull Beneath the Skin,” “Wake Up Dead,” “Symphony of Destruction,” “Peace Sells” and “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due.”
