John 5 declares “the show must go on” at Megacruise after noise complaints threaten set!


John 5 and The Creatures were recently at Megadeth’s Megacruise playing a crowd pleasing set for the fans aboard – but the show almost came to a jarring halt, when San Diego Police boarded the ship after the set violated local noise ordinance rules.

As Consequence of Sound write about the incident:

“John 5 was rocking the top deck of Megadeth’s MegaCruise on Monday night when his performance caught the attention of the San Diego police force. Apparently, the Rob Zombie guitarist and his band the Creatures violated the city’s noise ordinance, forcing him to cut the outdoor show short. However, that didn’t stop him from finishing the set.”

The show eventually carried on, after 5 and the organisers agreed to take their set below decks.
