Danny Estrin, frontman of Aussie synth metal rock band Voyager, has taken to social media to share the 'devastating' news that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
The 41-year-old shared that the band, who represented Australia in Eurovision this year, would be postponing their European tour due to the shock diagnosis so he could put his energy into recovering.
"Last week, I was dealt some life-altering news - I've been diagnosed with a form of cancer that requires immediate treatment," Danny wrote. "I am absolutely devastated that we cannot perform on our forthcoming European tour, especially after this incredible Eurovision year we've had.
"I am on strict doctors’ orders to not take this lightly, put my health first and get this sorted so we can be on stage again as soon as possible. This has been an extremely hard decision to make, but one that everyone will hopefully understand."
He continued, "At this stage, the tour will be rescheduled to October 2024 and we’d love fans to keep hold of their tickets where possible, but we understand if you prefer to request a refund; you can do so from your point of sale.
"Voyager will perform our last show for a while at the America’s Cup Event in Fremantle, Western Australia, this Sunday, 24 September 2023, so come and party with us before I start treatment.
"In the coming weeks, I will focus on my health and family and ask that everyone please respect our privacy. I truly value and appreciate everyone’s support and understanding during this time.
"I’m surrounded by my incredible bandmates and team who are navigating all things Voyager whilst I am out of action."
He signed off, "Love, your fierce friend Danny!"
The band's followers were quick to share well wishes with the frontman, with Eurovision writing, "Danny, you made so many friends in Liverpool - all of us are here for you, sending all our love."
"All of Australia is behind you Danny," SBS added. "We'll be waiting for when you're ready to rock the stage again, but until then, take care and focus on getting better."
"Sending you love you’re going to be on that stage again bringing joy and happiness to people," one user wrote.
"We are hugging you tight! We'll be all waiting for you to jump on stage again with all your strength! Sending love and support," another said.
"Oh man what a challenging thing to get tossed your way," a third said. "Wishing Danny all the best. It’s been such a wonderful thing to see the well deserved success Voyager have had this year. Lots more to come in due course I’m sure."
Voyager placed ninth in Eurovision earlier this year, which was the fifth time an Aussie act has placed in the top ten.
