The dance scene was shocked last week as Tim Bergling, more famously known as Avicii, announced his retirement from touring and performing at the end of 2016. In many cases, fans wanted to believe that it wouldn’t be true. It just couldn’t be. The musical legend who brought to us many beloved songs such as “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother” that to this day are played on the radio, is leaving the scene? It is indeed a sad thought to process.
Avicii has confirmed his final performances in the City of Sin, better known as Las Vegas, Nevada. The home of the famous slogan “What happens here, stays here”, or better yet, it ends up on facebook.
It’s getting real. Fear not, Avicii fans.
There are 13 shows that you can attend, to wish him a final farewell and send him out with warm, generous wishes on his next adventure. He’ll be performing at the Wynn Hotel and Casino, between two venues; six shows at XS Nightclub and seven shows at Encore Beach Club. These final shows start Friday, April 29th and run through until Saturday, June 25th. Tickets can be found on the Wynn event calendar.
While, it’s unfortunate to see Avicii say goodbye to touring, Chief Operating Officer Sean Christie of Wynn’s night life is happy that he’ll be playing the remainder of his show dates. XS as well as Encore Beach Club have played very prominent roles in Avicii’s career, having been one of the residents there alongside, David Guetta.
“We support Tim’s journey in life and wish him the very best. He knows our door is always open should he decide to tour again,” said Christie.
Don’t miss your final chance’s to see Avicii and his performances in Sin City as fans will undoubtedly be making ends meet in order to do so already!
