Avicii Bids Farewell to Live Shows to Live as a “Real Person”

Tim Bergling, more famously known as Swedish DJ Avicii, has made so many people happy with his music. Here in the Philippines alone, so many people went wild when Avicii came in 2013 and were full of nothing but praises for this Grammy Award nominee.

As such, it comes as quite a sad shock that Avicii has announced that his 2016 run will be his last tour and last shows.

On his Facebook page, Avicii thanks everyone who was part of him fulfilling his dreams. He shares, “I’ve become an adult while growing as an artist, I’ve come to know myself better and realize that there’s so much I want to do with my life. I have strong interests in different areas but there’s so little time to explore them.”

He shares that the realization to make a change came two weeks ago while driving across the U.S. with his friends. “I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist,” he says.

“One part of me can never say never, I could be back …but I won’t be right back.”
