His management posted a message on his Twitter account that scared the living daylights out of everyone. It simply stated that Benassi had sustained an injury in a skiing accident, but it didn’t say what kind of injury. They did state that he’d be canceling shows, though, so it sounded super serious.
Here’s the message:

It’s still horrible that Benny Benassi had to cancel shows, but thankfully his injury wasn’t anything permanent.
Benassi himself spoke with Billboard Dance in a quick statement and clarified the extent of his injury. He said, “I just had an accident skiing and need some time to mend a broken shoulder. My apologies to everyone planning on coming out to see me in January and February. I’ll be back soon. Thanks to everyone for your patience!”
