Dave Mustaine is back: Megadeth played first gigs in Europe (video)

Dave Mustaine, the leader of American thrash metallers Megadeth, is back after a successful cancer treatment. The band is currently touring Europe along with Five Finger Death Punch.

On January 15, 2020, Megadeth posted a few photos on Facebook from the band's rehearsal ahead of the European tour with FFDP. A few days later, a photo of Mustaine appeared on the page with a short comment, "I'm back."

Below is a video featuring Megadeth's first 2020's gig in Helsinki, which took place on January 20. In total, 20 performances are planned as a part of the current tour, including shows in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, the UK, and other European countries.

In June 2019, Dave Mustaine announced that he had been diagnosed with throat cancer. Due to this, Megadeth were forced to cancel the upcoming performance, which was supposed to be held on July 4 in Wisconsin, USA. Last October, the band's co-founder and band bass player David Ellefson revealed that Mustaine successfully completed his treatment.
