Shocking Revelations

MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Throat Cancer

Posted by on June 17, 2019 at 11:39 am

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has been diagnosed with throat cancer. The thrash legend revealed the news moments ago in a new statement.

Thankfully, Mustaine is already in treatment for the cancer and noted that doctors feel there is a 90% success rate of the treatment. Mustaine's full statement reads:

I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.

Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.

Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.

I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more.

I’ll keep everyone posted.

See you soon,
Dave Mustaine

We wish Dave a speedy recovery.
