Sam Feldt back on tour after scooter accident
After two months of not performing on stage, Dutch superstar Sam Feldt will return on stage again this weekend after his severe scooter accident. He will play at Amnesia Cap D’Agde in France on Friday, South West Four Weekender Festival in the UK on Saturday, and Mysteryland Festival on Sunday in The Netherlands. These three shows are part of a rehabilitation process that will last for months.
In a press release, Sam explained his status and
“The injury that I have is one of the most aggravating fractures you can get. The operation was successful, but I’m still far from fully recovered. I can’t dance or jump and have to sit down. But I am determined to go back on stage and do shows again, especially for my fans that I had to disappoint by canceling these shows.”
Sam Feldt also went on to explain his strong desire to return to performing:
“I find it quite exciting to get back on stage again, because it’s been a long time ago and I’m still kind of disabled at the moment. But all the positive and supportive reactions that I have received, have been really encouraging. I want to thank my fans, promoters and the entire team for all support and understanding.”
Back in late June, Sam’s management released a statement, explaining the famous DJ had an accident when he fell from a scooter in which he fractured his tibia plateau. Doctors spent four hours operating on the fracture of the tibia in his knee joint. As a result of the injury, more than twenty scheduled shows with his live band, including his gigs at the prestigious Tomorrowland and Sziget, had to be cancelled.
