Several weeks ago we received the unfortunate news that Martin Garrix suffered an ankle injury during a performance in Las Vegas. While he managed to finish his set, since then medical professionals have urged the young superstar DJ to stay off his feet for the next four weeks; news that doesn’t exactly bode well for his hectic touring schedule. In an official statement from Garrix’s team, we’ve been informed that all upcoming dates have been indefinitely canceled until the Netherlands producer’s ankle has healed. Join us in wishing him a speedy recovery and check out the full statement below.
It is with deepest regrets that Martin Garrix has to announce that he is forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks due to a serious ankle injury suffered during his show in Las Vegas on May 25th.
Even though feeling positive after some days of rest, further examinations have determined that all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle. Therefore Garrix is forced to follow the specialist’s advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks.
Garrix: ’’I’m devastated that I have to cancel these shows since nothing makes me happier than performing for you guys. I feel most alive when I’m on stage, seeing you guys smile. I was really looking forward to it and I never want to disappoint my fans. Unfortunately this is out of my control and I will need a surgery and enough rest to fully recover. If I won’t get surgery now I might permanently damage my ankle, which could mean I won’t be able to perform at all anymore. I want to thank everyone for their continuous support and I hope to be able to get back on stage to perform for you guys again really soon.’’
