Australian metal band Voyager have postponed their upcoming European tour, following lead singer Danny Estrin’s cancer diagnosis.

41-year-old Danny, who placed 9th alongside his bandmates at Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool, revealed his cancer diagnosis in a heartfelt Instagram post. 

The Perth-based singer said he is under strict doctors orders to put his health first and start treatment. 

Voyager’s European tour has been postponed to October 2024. 

Australia: Voyager’s Danny Estrin diagnosed with cancer

We’re pasting the full statement from Danny below. 

“Danny here. Last week I was dealt some life-altering news: I’ve been diagnosed with cancer that requires immediate treatment. 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.

“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.

“Love, your fierce friend Danny!”

The team at wiwibloggs extends our best wishes to Danny and hope for his swift recovery.

This is a life change News. I know it because I had passed the same . Twice. If you read this … Never stop to fight to believe you can . Even in the worst moments when you feel you re alone .

I had tickets for their Glasgow show, and shall be keeping them. Loved Voyager for 6 years since I discovered them. Of course I’m disappointed, but all my wishes and hopes are with him, his family and the band. Rock on Danny, beat the crap out of cancer, and I’ll see you in Glesga next October. ?

Danny: Take all the time you need! Wishing you the swiftest recovery possible! You have made Australia’s future participation possible as people still want to see your nation participate after your great song and result! YOU and Voyager are the heroes of our time, as the old song goes! You will be remembered in the history books and I hope the EBU allow Australia to continue because of your efforts.

That’s such an awful thing to hear. You’d never wish something so terrible on someone, especially not someone as awesome as these guys. I hope his cancer can and will be cured
