DJ AM First Gig After Plane Accident
There’s a light at the end of a dark tunnel. DJ AM knows that for sure.
After a few weeks recovering from his injury and trauma, DJ AM is back on the game. He joined Jay-Z at a special concert Wednesday celebrating the reopening of the Hollywood Palladium, the historic venue which once hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra, The Lawrence Welk Show, Led Zeppelin and the Emmy Awards on its more than 11,000-square-foot circular wooden floor.
This is AM’s, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, first performance since surviving a Sept. 19 plane crash with former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The 35-year-old spinner was lively throughout the concert; doing his thing scratching and rapping along with Jay-Z, flashing hand gestures throughout the rap mogul’s energetic set.
After Show Me What You Got, Jay-Z called attention to his ‘special guest’, saying, “Make some noise for DJ AM tonight!” The rapper also giving a shout out to Barker and the crash victims. Many audience members clamored to see the packed show from VIP sections in the Palladium’s two balconies overlooking the main floor. After closing last year, the venue received a $20-million renovation and is being leased by the concert promotion company Live Nation.
It looks like the trauma is over for DJ AM, because he will resume his residency at Caesars Palace’s Pure nightclub in Las Vegas next Tuesday. Already load and loaded, you might say. We’re happy for ya, AM, more progress please!
