Any Armin fan is well aware of how much his family means to him. Unfortunately, his father-in-law recently passed away after battling cancer for quite some time. Due to this passing, Alda Events (the producer of Armin Only) and Live Nations have announced the cancellation of the Thursday, April 17th Armin Only show in Chicago. Full refunds will be made to ticket holders, and the April 19th show in Toronto is still scheduled to run as planned. It was announced that everything has been done to try and avoid this cancellation, and although Armin feels awful about having to disappoint his fans, his family should and will always come first, as I am sure the trance family understands.
On behalf of Your EDM, we would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Armin Van Buuren’s father in law in their time of grief.
Due to the recent passing of Armin van Buuren’s father-in-law after a lengthy battle with cancer, ALDA Events (the producer of Armin Only) and Live Nation regretfully announce that the show set to take place this Thursday, April 17th at United Center has been cancelled. Everything has been done to try and avoid this cancellation, however due to several factors this is not going to be possible. While Armin feels terrible about the cancellation, it is crucial for him to be with family this week leading up to the funeral this Friday.
ALDA Events, Live Nation, Armada Music and David Lewis Productions would like to express their sincere condolences to the family, and request that the privacy of the family be respected during this incredibly difficult time.
Refunds for the April 17th show are available at the point of purchase. The Armin Only tour will resume Saturday, April 19th in Toronto as planned.
