It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that Avicii has announced his retirement from touring and live shows. The Swedish producer has had a history of illness that has caused him to cancel various shows and tours in the past, and it seems that the stress of a touring musician has finally caught up with him.
“I will however never let go of music – I will continue to speak to my fans through it, but I’ve decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let’s make them go out with a bang!”
The Facebook post below is the same text as the one now showing up on his website though admittedly in a less flowery font.
This is truly the end of an era.
We wish Avicii all the best, and hope that he never loses inspiration in music.
