Surprise Retirement Announcement Before Final Dubai Avicii Gig

The Swedish DJ Avicii who is currently undertaking an extensive worldwide tour, including a gig at Dubai World Trade Centre this Friday has announced that he is retiring after the tour. The superstar DJ, otherwise known as Tim Berling, has expressed a desire to take a step back and concentrate on other things in his life.

The DJ took to his website to thank fans for being there on his musical journey and to explain his reasons behind retiring from the live music scene such as wanting time to explore other areas of interest in his life.

A fortnight ago, he had taken a road trip with his crew and friends across the USA and realised that now was the right time to make a change in his life as he has been involved in DJ�ing since his teens. He still wants to connect to fans through music but has decided that 2016 will be his last ever tour of live shows. As well as thanking his legions of fans, he gave a warm mention to his bodyguard Semi Baddredine for his years of support.

The last time Avicii was due to play Dubai he had to cancel due to a ruptured appendix, and in 2015 cancelled a US tour to concentrate on having a normal life, so this retirement is not so unexpected.

*Tickets to Avicii�s gig on Friday the 1st of April are Dh395 on The show is for 21+ concert goers only.
