Avicii Retires From Shows

avicii

In a lengthy post on Facebook, Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, started off by thanking a host of people, before proceeding to explain his decision.

he wrote: “My path has been filled with success but it hasn’t come without its bumps. 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.

Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way. It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.

My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I’m grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. 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.

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. Let’s make them go out with a bang!

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

Miller had however denied the allegations in an open letter, and in a recent interview, claimed it got him beaten at a store by Meek Mill.

“This was my first time really talking with Meek and basically he told me that he didn’t appreciate the letter that I dropped and it made it seem like he was a liar,” Miller said. “And they f–king stole off on me in the Nike store and ran. I shed blood in the Nike store.”

“I’m one of the most peaceful, nicest mother f–kers that you’ll ever meet. I’m not a street n—a ,so you can have it,” Miller concluded. “You can have the tough title — that doesn’t do anything for me.”
