After a whirlwind of public outcry surrounded Opera Atlanta over the past few days, Zedd has canceled his performance at nightclub on February 1st. Although the German DJ/producer did not specify a reason for the decision, fans surmise that it was due to the apparent rape that took place at the establishment on the evening of January 19th.
"Hey guys. I’m sorry I will no longer be performing at Opera Atlanta on February 1st," wrote Zedd (real name Anton Zaslavski) in a tweet. "I’m looking forward to coming back to Atlanta ASAP."
Art Department, Rick Ross and Quintino remain on Opera Atlanta's online schedule at the time of writing. They all have yet to issue statements to the contrary - and the latter artist even included his February 8th appearance at the nightclub in a tweet about upcoming U.S. dates today.
Atlanta promoter subtle pulled their January 25th event headlined by Ciszak vs Bot following news of the incident. EDM.com previously broke the story of the nightclub's security staff allegedly scamming attendees in December.
The Atlanta Police Department's investigation of the Opera Atlanta sexual assault is still under way after being turned over to the special victims unit.
