We have news of yet ANOTHER DJ hospitalization at Miami's WMC. Last night, Thursday March 27, Dada Life were scheduled to play at the Remembrance Festival,a party to aid the charity of cancer research and commemorate the life of the recently departed, Paul Bäumer of the Bingo Players.
Due to the need for urgent abdominal surgery, one half of Dada Life, Stefan Engblom, will be flying back to his native home of Sweden w for urgent medical care. As seriously as it is, have no fear Dada fans. The other half of the banana loving spinners, Olle Corneer, will be carrying the Dada Life flag in the scorching heat of South Beach, as well as all future gigs the duo are set to play, at least until Stefan is fit and healthy again.
The duo releases this press releases to fans:-
“We wanted to let everyone know that unfortunately Stefan has had to fly back to Sweden to have some urgent abdominal surgery. It has to be done now to prevent more serious conditions in the future, as of right now we don’t know the recovery time but will have a timeline from the doctors in the coming days and will keep you all posted.
For the upcoming shows this weekend in Miami, Las Vegas and Boise please note that Olle will be coming and playing a full Dada Life show.
Do The Dada.”
