Performing in Montreal Canada last night, Martin Garrix was stung by a bee mid way through his set. Nevertheless, he continued on with his set, no doubt in a lot of pain.
Martin was booked to play the closing performance of the season at Beachclub in Montreal, said to be the largest outdoor club in North America. However, 10 minutes into his set, a bee actually entered his mouth and stung him. Just imagining this is painful. He continued to play until the pain was too much and sought medical attention off stage. Even with the considerable pain – he jumped back on stage to play the rest of his set – with 30 minutes extra for the fans.
Martin Garrix has been in the wars lately, after seriously injuring his ankle, he has now had this happen mid set. He has been performing with a crutch and a moon boot for the past few weeks, this just goes to show his resilience.
Martin Garrix is a one of a kind! Continuing his performance and even extending it after a bee sting in the mouth has to be commended. We hope Martin Garrix is feeling well, we doubt this would interfere in upcoming shows.
