After suffering a painful yet unknown ankle journey a couple weeks ago in Las Vegas, Martin Garrix updated fans with some regretful news. Unfortunately, the jump he took from stage has put an end to many of his upcoming shows this summer. A post on his official Facebook page states “It is with deepest regrets that Martin Garrix has to announce that he is forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks…” We saw his pain in previous videos posted to social media, but had no clue how serious the injury was.
“Further examinations have determined that all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle.”
Despite his strong will and determination to keep his schedule rolling, his health must take first priority. Garrix, notably, pushed through the pain after the accident, but his torn ankle ligaments were impossible to ignore. Looking to the future, Garrix is forced to cancel his upcoming shows “for at least the upcoming four weeks”. These events include Ultra Singapore, Echostage, Spring Awakening, and several Las Vegas stops. Obviously, it wouldn’t be possible to perform under such painful conditions.
Garrix thanks everyone for their continued support and wishes to get back on his feet as soon as he can. His packed summer had just begun and fans are hoping his health will improve for the big events like Tomorrowland. We wish a fast and safe road to recovery to Martin as he prepares for his upcoming surgery.
