Tim Bergling, known more commonly as Avicii, has hit the music industry with some emphatically devastating news this week. The Swede has announced that he will not be performing live after his 2016 dates that are lined up for the remaining months this year.
This announcement comes as quite a shock with Avicii having gained the repuation as one of the most in demand live performers on the DJ circuit. The famously highest paid DJ in the world is seems to be a little tired of putting in performances for his millions of worldwide fans and will be hanging up his USB sticks at the beginning of 2017.
The additional information that he (quote) “could be back… but wont be right back" has cemented that this news is very serious and not just a stunt that will see him return to playing live at the back end of next year.
With that, there has never been a more important time to get your Avicii tickets for his last ever shows in 2016. He will be playing at EDC UK later this year, the British instalment of Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, which has wet the appetite of all the glow stick whirling EDM fans that hold home this side of the Atlantic since 2013.
