Metalheads who had gathered to catch the iconic American thrash metal band Megadeth were left disappointed after the band played in the city after three years as they only played for a less than an hour.

The event which was scheduled to kick start at 6 PM on Wednesday at the NH7 Weekender Bangalore at Destination, Whitefield only started at a little earlier than 11 PM.

It was thought that the rain would result in many fans reaching the event late but it turned out to be otherwise.

According to the organizers of the event, the delay was a result of custom officials refusing to release the equipment meant for the band. Reportedly, the custom officials doubted if the equipment was meant for sale in India.   

Some of the fans allege that it was a fault on part of the organizers as the band was in the city three days before and it was only on Wednesday that they made any efforts to acquire the gear from the custom officials.

According to people attending the event, the authorities kept the audience clueless and were misleading in terms of when the event would actually start.

The band was originally scheduled to play 17 of their songs from their albums Rust in Peace, Countdown to Extinction and Cryptic Writings among others.
