MEGADETH played its first show since frontman Dave Mustaine‘s throat cancer diagnosis earlier tonight (Monday, January 20) in Helsinki, Finland. It marked the band’s first live appearance in 15 months.
Setlist was as follows:
01. Hangar 18
02. Wake Up Dead
03. Sweating Bullets
04. Dawn Patrol
06. A Tout Le Monde
09. Symphony Of Destruction
10. Peace Sells
11. Holy Wars… The Punishment Due
In November, Mustaine spoke about his battle with throat cancer in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“I’m on the other side of the majority of the treatment, and I feel really strong,” Dave said. “After the radiation, the guy said all of my test results looked amazing. ‘You look like you’re in a stage 1 and you’re supposed to be in stage 3 right now.’ And then the oncologist said the same thing: ‘You look really strong.’ So we kept moving through the process.”
