Wishing Dave Mustaine and the Megadeth Family Well

Unfortunately Megadeth will not be performing at Exit 111 in 2019, please see the following note from 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, including the Megadeth performance at Exit 111 Festival. 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”

Our thoughts are with Dave and all of the Megadeth family. A replacement and general artist addition will be announced soon.
