If you came out to the Gigantour this past weekend and saw Newsted perform you should consider yourself lucky because he has taken himself off some tour dates for The Gigantour 2013.

According to his Official Facebook Jason Newsted has fallen ill to walking pneumonia. This has caused Newsted to miss some Canadian tour dates.

Newsted was great when they performed at The Gigantour here in Lubbock and we wish him a very safe and healthy recovery.

The Giganour will continue to roll through early August.

Check out some some pictures of Newsted live on Stage here in Lubbock and I am glad that we got to see the legendary bass man.
