Tiësto Cancels Shows After Knocking Himself Out in San Jose

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2014 at 4:42 PM

Tiësto, the Dutch DJ and EDM titan, was sent to a San Jose hospital Friday after hitting his head on the LCD screen above the stage where he was performing at the Electric Bounce House concert.

The DJ apparently banged his head against the screen as he began performing at the SAP Center in San Jose. The impact knocked him off his feet. Tiësto then tried to perform anyway, but his management wouldn't let him, according to TMZ.

"I took that American expression 'go knock yourself out' too literally Friday night in the Bay Area," he tweeted about the incident. The injury required stitches and kept Tiesto from performing a scheduled gig in L.A. on Saturday night. But he's tweeted that he'll be just fine in time to play Ultra Music Festival in Miami this weekend. Sounds like he needs a few lessons in safe headbanging though. -- @iPORT

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
