The Armin Only website has announced that everything has been done to try and avoid this cancellation but due to Armins father in law passing away after a long battle with cancer, it is crucial for him to be with family this weekend.
MAJOR CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT
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 had 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.
Chicago was the only date to be cancelled. Armin is to premier his new album Intense most likely along side other new tracks from up coming artists as he does with his ASOT Radio Show.
We send our deepest condolences and positive vibes to Armin and his family in this time.
