Deadmau5 has rescheduled his forthcoming UK and Ireland shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Deadmau5, real name Joel Zimmerman, was bringing his Cube V3 shows to the Brixton Academy and Cork.
The ‘Strobe’ producer was slated for Cork’s Live at the Marquee series (June 19) and O2 Academy Brixton on June 26. Deadmau5 is now due to play the Brixton Academy next year on June 10, 2021, before traveling to Cork for June 18. Tickets previously purchased will remain valid for 2021.
In what should be a big year for electronic dance music, Creamfields is still set to run from August 22-25, held at the Daresbury Estate in Cheshire. Zimmerman is scheduled for Friday, (August 23), with Calvin Harris on the night after, and for the final day, the Swedish House Mafia trio.
Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the @deadmau5 show on Friday June 26 2020 is postponed and will now take place on Thursday June 10 2021.

Last year, Deadmau5 was banned from Twitch for homophobic language. He criticized the video game streaming platform for what he deemed “double standards”. While playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Zimmerman called another player a f****t. The player had killed him during the game, which led to the remark.
He since clarified that he does not blame Twitch for banning him. On Reddit, he said: “I know what the fuck I said and why I said it and in what contextual universe it belonged in,”
“I just don’t agree with their policy on who gets to decide whats freedom of expression and whats blatant extreme right wing crazy shit that’s actually harmful. Coz whats the difference I guess.”
