AceShowbiz - Hitmaking DJ Martin Garrix has cleared his schedule for the next month to undergo surgery on his injured ankle.
The Dutch superstar had to cut short his residency show at Las Vegas' Omnia club in late May after landing awkwardly during a stage jump and hurting his ankle.
He was briefly hospitalised before jetting out to Monaco for a break, where he posted a photo of himself in a wheelchair and assured fans he was on the mend.
"Few days rest! feels good, ankle is also recovering I think," he wrote.
However, upon further examination, doctors have informed Garrix "all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage," his representatives have revealed.
The statement, posted on the musician's Instagram account, continues, "Therefore Garrix is forced to follow the specialist's advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks".
Apologising to fans for the change of plans, the Scared to Be Lonely DJ adds, ''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".
Among the dates cancelled for June include shows in South Korea, the Netherlands, Iceland, and Canada.
