Dave Mustaine is thankful for the outpouring of support he’s received in the past week since he announced he is battling throat cancer.
The 57-year-old MEGADETH mainman revealed his diagnosis last week and has already begun treatment his medical team believes has a 90% success rate.
Mustaine says, “I wanted to take a moment real quick and thank my family, my friends and the best fans in the world for all of your support and love the last few days. We're gonna beat this thing together."
Although most of MEGADETH's previously announced 2019 tour dates have been canceled as Mustaine undergoes treatment, the MEGADETH-curated Megacruise — which is set to take place October 13-19 — will still depart as scheduled, and the band will be a part of it in some form.
