[Breaking] Martin Garrix Forced to Cancel All Shows Coming Weeks Due to Ankle Injury
On Saturday, May 25, 2019, Martin Garrix sustained a serious ankle injury during his performance at Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas.
The Dutch DJ holds a residency at the tri-level club inside of Caesars Palace. Unfortunately, his luck ran out as he reportedly injured his ankle jumping off of the stage.
Although Garrix seemed to be in good spirits despite having a terribly swollen ankle and having to use crutches and a wheelchair to get around, it's been reported that the injury was worse than he thought.
In a recent press statement to his social media, it’s confirmed that "ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle".
Furthermore, "Garrix is forced to follow the specialist’s advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks".
That's right, The Flag fam, you might not be able to catch this talented musician performing as your next festival...
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."
