Avicii’s body will be flown home to Sweden
Police have confirmed that Avicii’s body will return home to his home country of Sweden within the week. The DJ passed away tragically in Muscat, Oman while on vacation. Police have reported that, “He is survived by his parents, two brothers and sister — who are all completely devastated”. The global phenomenon known as Avicii was only 28 years old at the time of death. There is currently no official report that outlines the cause of his death.
In 2016, Tim Bergling turned to his website to announce his plans to end touring for the time being. He stated:
“We all reach a point in our lives and careers where we understand what matters the most to us,” he wrote. “For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do. Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense — the studio.”
Avicii’s former manager Ash Pournori discovered Avicii when he was 18 years old. He posted a very emotional letter on Facebook shortly after news of his death. While his body is heading home, his Swedish brethren have payed tribute to him in Stockholm, and the Swedish Prime Minister wrote a farewell message to him. The message was addressed to Tim and his family. Stefan Löfven wrote that Avicii was “one of Sweden’s largest musicians in modern time.”
