The hits just keep coming.
Yesterday, dance music fans in Singapore were informed of the alarming news that Ultra Singapore, which is scheduled to take place this weekend is being moved to an indoor venue. Now, in a cruel twist of fate, it has been revealed that headliner Martin Garrix will be cancelling his performance.
While this may be heartbreaking news to many, it is important to note that the cancellation of his performance has nothing to do with Ultra Singapore. In fact, Garrix will be cancelling all shows for the foreseeable future. Garrix suffered a serious ankle injury on 25 May while in Las Vegas and has been given doctor's orders to recuperate or risk permanent injury to his ligament.
Check out his statement below.
Ultra Singapore 2019 will be happening on Saturday and Sunday, 8 and 9 June, at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre. Tickets are now on sale, GA 2-day pass at $238, and Premium GA-day pass at $268. Get your tickets here.
Press Statement: Martin Garrix forced to cancel all shows coming weeks 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.’’
