Earlier this month, Headhunterz made a statement to fans announcing that he was cancelling all his shows in December, with the exception two shows in his native Netherlands. “The coming weeks will be spent to rest, recharge and focus on his health,” the statement read. “By limiting the stress that is an inevitable part his pressional life, we trust that he gets the space he needs to recover and can once again devote himself to his passion: making music and performing.”
With the growing emphasis on mental health in musicians’ lives this year, the fan response was largely positive and understanding.
Yesterday, his team provided a quick update on Headhunterz’, real name Willem Rebergen, condition, letting fans know that he is “feeling better and that his condition is improving.” It was also reiterated that he would not be traveling until the end January so he could “come back to the stage in full force.”
Until then, we wish him the best and a speedy recovery. See the full message from his team below.
We’re pleased to update you and let you know that Willem is feeling better and that his condition is improving. Willem will not travel until the end January so he can continue to take time for himself and ensure that he can come back to the stage in full force.
Although December’s international shows have been cancelled, two shows are still taking place in the Netherlands this month. Tonight he will perform at Paradiso (Amsterdam) in the premiere the brand new show concept @orangeheart alongside @keltekmusic & @djrandficial. Willem also performed last Saturday at the Music Dome (Kerkrade) and tested the waters being back on stage for the first time in a while.
Thank you very much for your kind messages. The love & understanding that our community has shown over the past few weeks is truly remarkable. We see all your Orange Hearts loud and proud, and want to make it clear that your words have been received and forwarded and that they mean the world to Willem.
Until further notice, posts on Willem’s accounts are still being done by his team.
