Bingo Players’ Paul Bäumer Passes Away after Cancer Battle

By  | 

After revealing his cancer diagnosis earlier this year, Paul Bäumer has sadly passed away after a months-long battle. Over the past few months, Paul went on hiatus from the group’s touring and studio time to fight the illness as the dance world offered up support for him. The news of Paul’s passing was confirmed by fellow Bingo Player Maarten Hoogstraten, who shared a letter on the duo’s website and Facebook, which can be seen below.

“Dear All,

I’m deeply saddened to tell you that Paul passed away last night after his battle with cancer.


He fought strongly until the end.


We want to thank you all for your support over the past few months.


Needless to say, all upcoming shows for the rest of this year have been cancelled as we’re going through this loss with family and friends. We’ll post a longer update shortly with more information as well.


Paul, we will miss you.

– Maarten”

Rest in peace, Paul. Our sincere condolences out to his family and friends.
