Benny Benassi has sustained a serious injury during a skiing accident, according to a statement made by his management via his Twitter and Facebook pages.

The message does not clarify when the accident occurred, how serious the level of injury or when Benassi may be expected to recover. It does say ticket-holders should contact their local promoters for refunds.

Benny Benassi responded to Billboard Dance's request for comment with the following message:

“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!”
