Something Wicked: More Light on Houston's Halloween EDM Bash

Tiësto regrets to announce that due to a back injury he has been advised to take the month of October off from performances and is expected to make a full recovery.

"I hate to disappoint my fans and be told I have to sit still for a while, but I am relieved we were able to reschedule the dates. I'm looking forward to seeing you all very soon!" -- Tiesto

"We will be replacing him with someone else soon," Nightculture's Mike Long confirmed via email. "It will still be an amazing event."

"We are planning on replacing him with someone of equal stature or several more artists, including the few that we haven't disclosed yet," added Nightculture Talent/Marketing coordinator Kerry Toorcana.

We'll let you know.
