I am really sorry but due to an acute medical condition I am unable to travel or perform in Miami this week. I am truly gutted to miss any shows but especially Miami as this is one of my favourite times of the year.— Eric Prydz (@ericprydz) March 27, 2019
The response to his announcement has been mainly good wishes and hopes of a speedy recovery. "Very saddening I love you’re [sic] music so much," one fan wrote. "But I genuinely hope you get well soon, see you next time."
Regarding Prydz's show at Wynwood Factory, the event promoter, Humans Alike, announced on Facebook that ticket holders would receive a complimentary one-week pass to Wynwood Factory's Miami Music Week events (entry before midnight), along with a full refund.
Prydz was also set to perform at Ultra as Cirez D alongside Adam Beyer at the Carl Cox Megastructure Friday, March 29, and on the A State of Trance stage Sunday, March 31. New Times has contacted Ultra about who will perform in Prydz's absence. This post will be updated when more information becomes available.
