It’s a sad, sad day for Skrillex followers after the DJ has announced that he will be canceling his highly anticipated Full Express Train Tour, previously expected to begin this summer season.
Unfortunately Skrillex has experienced an array of issues in the tour’s preparation and now he is forced to zap all plans for the trek to happen this year. This is obviously a huge disappointment, but Skrillex is giving hope to fans for bigger and better things in the near future. Here is the statement released by the man himself:
It is with huge disappointment that we have to announce the Full Flex Express will not be happening in 2013. During the past 4 months we lost the train we had booked, found a new one, and then realized the cost associated with using it would put us at a huge, huge loss.
We explored every option to make the Full Flex Express happen but ultimately we could not get around these setbacks. Also, some of the acts we had in mind were unavailable and we only wanted to deliver the best of the best, which is what we think this festival should deliver.
The train is near and dear to my heart, and we have every intention of bringing it back in a massive way in 2014 (and for many years after), so please understand that we do this for you and this is just an unfortunate convergence of circumstances. Refunds will be issued at point of purchase and also to everyone who bought a ticket online.
