Paul Kalkbrenner cancels tour dates due to severe ear infection

German DJ to rest on doctor’s orders...

Much like his character in Berlin Calling, German DJ Paul Kalkbrenner has been forced to cancel a series of upcoming gigs in NYC, San Francisco and Mexico City later this month. 

The news arrives at a particularly inopportune time for the a much-loved artist, not least because he only recently announced the dates for the live show in question, Back to the Future, just last week.  

In a Facebook post from yesterday, the platinum-selling artist told fans that his doctor ‘absolutely forbid me to set foot onto a plane due to my acute inner ear infection’ and warned that ignoring the problem ‘could lead to worse [problems]’.

Thankfully, Kalkbrenner has promised fans that his team will be rescheduling new dates ASAP. 

We’d like to wish Paul a speedy recovery from all of us here at DJ Mag.
