In about 10 hours, Dash Berlin is supposed to headline a Future Sound Asia event at KL Live in Kuala Lumpur. Early bird (Phase 1) tickets are sold out, there are no VIP table packages left, the set times have been released, and it is without a question that fans are excited to see the flying Dutchman tonight.
Alas, Dash Berlin just took to his Twitter to say that he will not be able to make it to the show:

The British Airways Dreamliner flight that Dash Berlin was on left Heathrow Airport in London a couple of hours ago but was made to turn back due to an operational issue, according to Flightradar24. AirLive later confirmed that the plane turned back due to a pressurisation problem.
Dash Berlin also uploaded a really heartfelt apology video for his fans via his Facebook page and offered further clarification on the dilemma that he was currently facing. “Unfortunately, the next connecting flight to Kuala Lumpur is not gonna make up for the time lost to make my gig in KL Live,” he said.
This is the second time in a row that Dash Berlin will not be able to play in Kuala Lumpur, the first being last year’s cancelled Thirst 2015.
Future Sound Asia has yet to release an official statement regarding the matter so it is not known as of yet if the event has been cancelled or postponed to a later date. Will the show still go on? We’ll update this post as soon as we have more details.
UPDATE (19th February, 10:45am):
Dash Berlin’s show has been postponed to a later date, as confirmed by Future Sound Asia. Postponement details will be announced by the organiser as soon as they’ve ironed out the necessary arrangements with Dash Berlin’s management.
