Canadian DJ Deadmau5 has claimed he snuck out of hospital and hopped on a plane to perform a scheduled show last week, even after he was diagnosed with a lymph node infection.
The producer, real name Joel Zimmerman, was recovering to hospital, however he revealed via Twitter that he left the hospital to fly to Miami where he performed at a Red Bull function, before making his way back to the hospital.
"literally snuck out of the hospital, hopped on a jet, played a show for @redbull, getting back on jet. going back to hospital. such lols," Zimmerman tweeted.

While some may not want to take his word for it, Instagram posts from the Miami gig were uploaded shortly after and if you ever needed something to spot some one out in a crowd, that famous mouse headdress definitely helps.

Last week Zimmerman revealed he had fallen ill by taking to social media to write, "so my lymph nodes have swollen up to about the size of golf balls. so much for sleeping tonight :/"
It is understood that Zimmerman has since recovered and is gearing up to perform a number of shows throughout the US to wrap up 2015.
