International star Tiësto just announced he will not be performing at Super Bowl LVIII after all … saying he will miss the big game due to a “personal family emergency.”
The “Godfather of EDM” shared the update with his fans on Thursday … just days before he was slated to hit the 1s and 2s for the 49ers vs. Chiefs matchup at Allegiant Stadium.
Me and my team have been preparing something truly special for months, but a personal family emergency is forcing me to return home Sunday morning,” Tiësto said via the X app.
“It was a tough decision to miss the game, but family always comes first.”
This would’ve been the first time the NFL had an in-game DJ for the Super Bowl … and Tiësto — who sold more than 36 million albums — was honored to take on the role.
“Thank you to the @NFL for the collaboration,” the 55-year-old DJ said … adding he still plans to work with the league on something “incredible” at a later date.
Fans sent warm wishes to Tiësto after he broke the news … and as for the game, there’s no word on whether he will be replaced in the DJ booth by someone else on Super Sunday.
