The Statement:
“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”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can only add that we are keeping Dave and his family in our thoughts during this trying time. Let’s all hope that by catching it early and with the best treatment that he will beat this illness and be back to doing what he does the very best, delivering socially relevant and ass-kicking Heavy Metal music. Get well soon Dave. We are all pulling for you to do so.
