Armin-fans and Trance addicts in the US will not like this, but family’s first in this case: Armin van Buuren has just announced that the Chicago edition of his Armin Only Intense tour has been cancelled, due to the passing of his father-in-law. As stated on his website:

„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 has 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.“

We herewith would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Armin’s father-in-law.
