Steve Aoki Cancels Shows for Emergency Vocal Surgery

Bad news for EDM fans and good news for the rest of us – Steve Aoki will be out of action for a while, as he undergoes surgery to remove a large nodule on his vocal cord.

 

“For the past 20 years, all the screaming at my shows have severely messed up my vocal chords,” he said. “I’ve prolonged this surgery for quite some time, and the doc said it’s now or never.

 

“If I don’t save my voice, I won’t have one soon,” he continued. “I don’t have a choice. It has to be done. I’m really trying to cancel the least amount of shows as possible.”

 

As a result of the “invasive surgery”, Aoki has cancelled upcoming shows in Ibiza, Wijchen, Newcastle and We Are FSTVL in Upminster.
