It might not be a very good morning for all of you Avicii fans out there as a shocking announcement appeared on the artist’s social media. The genuis behind tracks like “Levels” & “Bromance” is calling his touring career a wrap at the end of 2016.
Only 26 years of age, Tim Bergling became a superstar in a matter of seconds – 5 consecutive years ranked in the top 100 of DJ Mag, 3 Grammy nominations, 2 artist albums & millions of copies sold globally. Unfortunately we have all witnessed multiple cancellations of tours in the past years, the main reason of which has been his health, showing that success does take its toll.
This morning, March 29th, Avicii posted a personal note to all his fans, colleagues, friends and family sharing all the positives he has experienced in the course of his career. What is the reason he’s calling it quits? A very simple, yet essential one – “I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.”
We all wish Avicii the best of luck and we only continue to hope this decision is not permanent.
“One part of me can never say never, I could be back …but I won’t be right back.”
