After the emotional performance, Gareth Emery took to his Twitter to speak about the tribute.
Avicii was such a huge influence on me, I wanted to do something on the Laserface tour in tribute.
Playing a track or two didn’t quite feel enough, so instead @emhewitt and I did this acoustic version of one of his final hits ‘Without You’.
Tim, I hope we did it justice.
