(CelebrityAccess) — Internationally renowned DJ and producer Martin Garrix has canceled all of his upcoming performances while he undergoes ankle surgery.
A statement from his team said:
“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 was injured in Las Vegas late last month while performing as part of his residency at Omnia after he attempted to jump down off a stage, injuring his ankle.
At the time, he gamely made an effort to continue to perform while hopping on but eventually cut the set short and was transported to a local hospital in an ambulance.
Garrix was booked for numerous performances in the coming weeks, including Poplar Creek Music Theater in Chicago on June 9th, Paradiso Nightclub in Amsterdam on June 13th, Echostage in Washington D.C. on June 22nd, TD Place in Ottawa, Ontario on June 23rd and the Mainsquare Festival in Arras-en-Lavedan, France on July 6th.
“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,” Garrix said.
