Dikke pech voor Sam Feldt, de 24-jarige dj kan de komende 6 weken niet draaien in verband met een gebroken been die hij opliep door een ongeluk met zijn scooter, de afgelopen week.
Eind deze week gaat de dj onder het mes en daarna is het zes weken rust en revalideren geblazen. Gevolg is dat de Nederlander verschillende belangrijke sets op grote festivals moet cancellen. Sam in zijn Engelstalige statement:
Thanks for all the love and support - as you might have noticed I have been off the radar for the past week to rest and to process what has happened. Your kind words and wishes really helped me a lot. I just came back from the hospital and received some more info from the doctors.
Unfortunately, during my recent scooter accident I sustained a tibial plateau fracture, which is a nasty break in the upper part of my lower leg. I need surgery to be able to heal properly, which is scheduled for Thursday July 12th.
After surgery, at least 6 weeks of rest and revalidation are needed. Therefore I’m very sad to announce I won’t be playing any of the announced summer tour dates up until the 23rd of August. I’ll keep you updated about my surgery and recovery and when there is news to share you guys will be the first to know.
I can’t put into words how sad I am about cancelling these shows and the whole situation. I am deeply sorry to all my fans that were looking forward to seeing me and the band live. Me and my team are working really hard together with promoters to reschedule the shows to a later date.
All I can do now is take my rest and hope for a smooth and good recovery. I can’t wait for the moment to rock on stage once again!
Onder meer de Sam Feldt-sets op Tomorrowland (mainstage), Parookaville, Sziget, Sensation Bangkok, Nature One en het Black Sheep Festival gaan helaas niet door.
