Whethan has joined the growing list of DJ/producers whose plans have been disrupted by the rigors of tour life. The Chicago DJ/producer cancelled a September 29th gig in Perth and an October 5th appearance in Sydney, citing mental health issues as his reason.
"Mentally I am in a place right now that is very worrisome to myself and my team," Whethan (real name Ethan Snoreck) tweeted. "I've been advised by everyone to cancel these shows and try to get some rest back home. Right now I need to take time to focus on my mental and physical health again. I promise next time I'm back I will make it up to you."
At 20 years of age, Snoreck boasts an enviable electronic music career. At only 16 he became the youngest artist ever to relesae music on Future Classic, and by the time he graduated high school he had toured alongside The Chainsmokers.
Snoreck is slated to resume touring with an appearance at Exchange LA in Los Angeles, California on October 18th.
