Avicii Officially Retires From Touring
Avicii played his final performance yesterday (Aug. 28) at Ushuaia Ibiza before retiring from touring at age 26.
The Swedish superstar's swansong took place at the White Isle institution where he has held a five-year residency. He was joined by KSHMR, Seeb, Albin Meyers and the Mambo Brothers.
In April, Avicii shocked the dance music world when he announced his retirement from live performance in an emotional letter posted to his website. While Avicii decided to cease touring after this year, he assured fans that he will "continue to speak" to them through his music.
“To me it was something I had to do for my health,” he later told Billboard. “The scene was not for me. It was not the shows and not the music. It was always the other stuff surrounding it that never came naturally to me. All the other parts of being an artist. I'm more of an introverted person in general.It was always very hard for me. I took on board too much negative energy, I think.”
