Megadeth recently announced their return to touring with a full band. The announcement comes just before they kick off their European tour as part of ‘MegaDeathPunch’ where they will be playing alongside Five Finger Death Punch and Bad Wolves.

Following Dave Mustaine’s throat cancer diagnosis last year, the band canceled most of their concerts for the rest of the year to make way for the frontman’s treatment. While temporarily on a break from touring, Mustaine still continued to work with the band on their forthcoming album.
By the end of last year, Mustaine reported that he had been seeing very positive results from the treatment, enabling him to return to touring with Megadeth. The first stop on their tour as part of ‘MegaDeathPunch’ will be in Helsinki, Finland on January 20.
