Megadeth frontman called out a heckler during the band’s gig in Moline, Illinois last week, telling the fan that he should “talk or shut the fuck up.”
The heavy metal band were performing at the city’s iWireless Center last Friday night (October 7) when the incident occurred.
As Loudwire reports, Mustaine was addressing the crowd mid-way through the gig when the heckler proceeded to yell at him. As fan-shot footage attests, Mustaine took particular exception to being interrupted.
“What? What’d you say?” he asked of the heckler. “Okay, everybody, I’m gonna wait ’till this asshole is done talking… No, go ahead: whatever you’ve got to say is more important than what I’ve got to say. Go ahead. No, don’t act like a kiss-ass now. Talk or shut the fuck up.”

A commenter on the above YouTube video clarified that it was unclear what the heckler first said when he interrupted Mustaine, but when he got the frontman’s attention, he swiftly changed his tack.
“When Dave noticed him he said “love you Dave! I’ll take my pants off for you!” and right after the pants comment was when Dave goes “what?” and then proceeds to roast him,” YouTuber user Slingshot wrote.
