Martin Garrix cancels all upcoming performances

We wish the Dutch superstar a speedy recovery...

Martin Garrix has been forced to cancel all of his upcoming shows. 

The cancellations come weeks after the Dutch superstar was suffered an ankle injury while performing on stage in Las Vegas on May 25th. During that performance, Garrix managed to finish his set, but wound up leaving in an ambulance. 

Now he’s been instructed by doctors to stay off of his feet for the next four weeks. That’s made performing impossible, so his team announced in a press statement that he’ll have to forego all of his upcoming shows until he’s recovered. 

Garrix said he’s “devastated,” but that things are out of his control. And without surgery, he’ll could suffer permanent damage, and ultimately be unable to perform “at all anymore.” 

We wish Garrix a speedy recovery. Read the statement from his team and Garrix 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."
