DAVE MUSTAINE - beim MEGADETH Frontmann wurde Krebs diagnostiziert



Bei Dave Mustaine, dem Frontman von MEGADETH, wurde Kehlkopfkrebs diagnostiziert. Die Diagnose wurde von Dave selbst über seine Social Media Kanäle veröffentlicht. Im Rahmen  seines Statements spricht Dave von einer 90% Chance auf Heilung und dass er sich bereits in Behandlung befindet. Allerdings sagen Megadeth verständlicherweise so gut wie alle für 2019 gebuchten Konzerte ab. Ausgenommen davon wird wahrscheinlich die von MEGADETH ausgerichtete Metal-Kreuzfahrt MEGACRUISE sein, die stattfinden wird und bei der die Band in einer noch nicht näher genannten Form teilnehmen wird.

Hier das Statement von Dave Mustaine:

"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"
