Calvin Harris sets return date after cancelling gigs following car crash

DJ looks likely to resume his Las Vegas residency shortly.

Calvin Harris is set to return to playing live this week, following a car crash which forced him to cancel two shows at the weekend.

Harris was forced to scrap a concert at Las Vegas nightclub Omnia on Friday (May 20) and his headline slot at Hangout Festival in Alabama the following day after injuring his nose.

The DJ was the passenger in a Cadillac which collided with a Volkswagen Beetle driven by a 16-year-old girl at Coldwater Canyon near Beverly Hills at 11pm on Friday.

He was advised to take several days off following the accident, but is now expected to resume his DJ residency at Las Vegas nightclub Hakkasan on Thursday (May 26).

A spokeswoman for Harris – whose real name is Adam Wiles – said: “Adam was examined by doctors and sustained a number of injuries. He has been advised to rest for a few days. He has since been checked out of hospital and is now recovering. We wish all the other passengers involved in the incident a fast recovery.”

Panic! At The Disco, who were replacement headliners for Harris at Hangout Festival, said: “We wish all involved a speedy recovery and hope we do you proud, Calvin.”

After releasing new Rihanna collaboration single ‘This Is What You Came For’ in April, Harris has hinted that he is set to release more new songs shortly.

Harris returns to the UK for headline festival appearances at Wireless and T In The Park in July.
