Avicii, Electronic Dance DJ and Producer, Dies at 28


The DJ had been working on new music up until this point which makes the news all the more sudden.

As Avicii's star rose, so did his net worth. "I still watch the video of the performance and get goosebumps".

The Swedish DJ's death was made public this afternoon in a statement.

Avicii, the Grammy-nominated electronic dance DJ who performed sold-out concerts for feverish fans around the world, died on Friday.

Once Avicii turned 18, he nearly instantly started touring, his first gig being at a club in Miami. It's a shame to see someone in the industry gone too soon.

"Dear Tim your family have my most heartfelt condolences".

By 2012, Avicii was garnering attention in the States. "I love everything that comes with it; it's fun and it's kind of glamorous", Avicii said. After releasing this single, he simultaneously broke through worldwide barriers with his music. Tim, have an unbelievable journey.

"You set the precedent for the rest of us producers/opened doors and set the trends.

No further statements will be given", his publicist Diana Baron said in a statement. "It is impossible to replace such great and unique talent".

Pop star Dua Lipa tweeted: "Such sad news to hear about Avicii passing".

No words can describe the sadness I'm feeling right now, hearing about Avicii passing away.

"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". RIP man, thank you for all the fantastic music.

"Thoughts go out to his family and friends".

While Bergling was known for having a prolific work ethic on the road, he also suffered from serious health problems. "To me it was something I had to do for my health", he told Billboard of his decision to quit touring during an interview in 2016. It was not the shows and not the music. "All the other parts of being an artist", he said.

"Banter apart, no one can deny what he has achieved and achieved for contemporary dance music and I am very pleased with him". "Like I have my private life back and focusing on myself for the first time in a long time", he says. He had worked with artists including Madonna, David Guetta and Lenny Kravitz in his journey.

He called the fan response to his announcement "incredible". After announcing his retirement, Bergling wrote on his site "for me it's creating music".

Tiesto, an early mentor to Avicii said: "Words cannot describe how I feel right now. Wish I could have said that to you in person". I remember how fantastic it was to make Lonely Together and feels just like yesterday we were talking.
