Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Cancer

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Cancer

Dave Mustaine, the legendary frontman for Megadeth has posted the following update on the official Megadeth website regarding his cancer diagnosis:

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 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


No other information is available at this time, but we’ll keep everyone posted when there is any news about Dave’s condition.  Everyone at XS ROCK is wishing the best for Dave as he battles this illness.
