Deadmau5 Claims to Have Snuck Out of a Hospital So He Could Play a Show

Neither rain nor sleet nor snow nor a severe lymph node infection can stop Deadmau5 from playing a scheduled gig. The helmeted EDM star claims to have “literally snuck out of” a hospital on Thursday night so that he could play a Red Bull event in Miami. “Hopped on a jet, played a show for Red Bull, getting back on jet. Going back to hospital. Such lols,” he summarized on Twitter.

The hospitalization was “nothing serious,” he said. “Thyroid/lymph node s**t. Caused by some underlying thing that may or may not exist. All good.”

Still, Deadmau5, sneaking out of a hospital is dangerous. If you keep ignoring doctors orders, your morbid moniker might just become literal.
