DJ Tiesto’s flight to Vancouver on United Airlines has been delayed. He will not be able to make it in time to tonight’s Dooms Night concert at the PNE Pacific Coliseum. The concert will be postponed and the new date will be announced shortly.

Updates from Solid Events on their Facebook and Twitter accounts confirm the cancellation and postponement:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances with Tiesto’s flight situation, Solid Events will be postponing their #DAY2 show for this evening. We have exhausted our resources in everyway to continue the event, however, the show will have to be delayed until further notice. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to the event for tonight.”



Throughout the evening, Tiesto and his team took to his Twitter account to update fans and concert goers on his whereabouts. He also announced over Twitter that tonight’s concert will be postponed:










Tiesto was advertised as the headliner of the much-anticipated, 2-night Halloween event. Organizers promised to bring this year’s event to a new level to celebrate Dooms Night’s 10th anniversary, which largely centred around bringing the world renowned Dutch DJ to the event.

The cancellation marks the second time this month an international artist has cancelled a Vancouver performance. On Sunday, October 20, American rapper Kanye West postponed his Vancouver concert at Rogers Arena to Halloween – providing ticket holders, some traveling from as far away as Halifax, with merely a 4 hour notice.

West’s concert was postponed due to ‘unforeseen’ logistical and border crossing issues following his Seattle concert the night before.
