Avicii is out of hospital and about to get back out on the road. The Swedish superstar DJ was hospitalized in Australia over the weekend due to “stomach related issues,” just hours before he was due to headline the Future Music Festival in Brisbane. He missed the Saturday opener, and the following day’s festival in Perth.

The EDM artist, whose real name is Tim Bergling, today Tweeted a string of positive messages to his 600,000-plus followers. “Finally out of the hospital and on recovery mode and trying to pull everything together in order to do as many shows as possible,” he wrote early Thursday.

He went on to suggest his gallbladder was behind his illness, but admitted his booked aftershow party this Saturday at Brisbane’s The Met won’t happen “due to the excess travel it involves.” The house DJ vowed to play the remaining Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide dates of Future Music Festival this weekend.
