Voyager vocalist Danny Estrin diagnosed with cancer, band cancels European tour
Danny Estrin, lead singer of Australian band Voyager, has revealed that he's been diagnosed with cancer requiring immediate treatment. Consequently, the band has made the tough call to cancel their European tour.
Voyager will play their last show before Estrin's treatment at the America's Cup event in Fremantle, Western Australia, on September 24, 2023. Estrin requested privacy during his recovery and expressed his gratitude for the support.
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 while I am out of action.
Love, your fierce friend Danny!
