Last week, trance fans had their hearts in their mouth when German Grammy Award winning electronic dance music DJ, musician and record producer Paul van Dyk , had taken a serious fall at the “A State of Trance 750” stage in Utrecht, Holland. In the video one can see where he apparently misstepped and plummeted from the stage. It’s hard to discern exactly what happened, but this update confirms it must’ve been quite the fall.
The news was further exacerbated for his fans, after a radio silence that ensued the fall, with media trying to fill in the blanks.
Now after a week, a post appeared on Van Dyk’s own Facebook page thanking fans for their support during this tough time. The post outlines that the producer suffered concussion and a cracked vertebrae, but more significantly that he is expected to eventually make a full recovery.
“We’d like to express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for everyone’s overwhelming support for PvD this past week. We have very good news to report as Paul is fully conscious and now under normal care. Paul did sustain a concussion and cracked vertebrae. Though he must remain under hospital care while his condition improves, we expect Paul to recover fully from his injuries. PvD deeply appreciates your support and looks forward to touring again as soon as possible.”
Paul’s future shows have, as expected, been cancelled, and he has been replaced by his Trance peers on festival lineups for the near future.
