Swedish DJ Avicii found dead at 28

Star DJ Avicii has died in Muscat, Oman, aged 28

I have been DJIng a number of years now and his tracks at all times get the complete crowd leaping with absolute pleasure.

Music producer and DJ Avicii has been found dead in Oman at the age of 28, his publicist has said. The news was announced in a statement from his rep.

The Swedish DJ was nominated for a Grammy twice, in 2012 and 2013.

"No @Avicii. I can't even begin to comprehend this", she wrote, "I adore you and I loved traveling and touring Europe with you". Tim was such a humble, kind and lovely soul. The DJ had been releasing music since 2008 however, it was his 2011 single "Levels" which propelled him to global stardom. "He helped our culture make an impact on the mainstream that will never be forgotten".

"My heart goes out to his family". Tim, have an unbelievable journey. But in America, you still see homophobia.

Rizarri says he and other Avicii fans were hoping for a comeback album. "He was a hardworking and gentle person - one of a kind".

Confetti cannons and bass drops aside, his shows encapsulated the inclusive, everyone-welcome philosophy that led him to collaborate with Coldplay, Nile Rodgers and Antony Hegarty as well as bluegrass and metal musicians in the studio. Avicii was at the soul of this explosion into dance music.

Like you, we've spent this evening playing all our favourite Avicii tracks, from collaborations, remixes and straight up chart toppers, in tribute to talent who literally changed the face of music.

Little else is known about Bergling. He also had his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014.


He stop touring in August 2016, citing health reasons.

"The scene was not for me", he told Billboard magazine. It was not the shows and not the music.

Avicii's club anthems include Wake Me Up, Hey Brother, and recently, Lonely Together with Rita Ora. All the other parts of being an artist.

U.S. singer Charlie Puth tweeted: "Wow, I want to take a second to pay tribute to the person who actually opened my eyes as to what my productions might in the future sound like". It was always very hard for me. "I took on board too much negative energy, I think", he said at the time.

He described being "nervous" to announce his retirement, saying he was anxious "I would look ungrateful". It's no surprise he was one of the most beloved DJs on the circuit. "The fan response has been incredible".

Tweeting about the operation at the time, he said: 'It's a routine procedure and all going well, I expect to be fully recovered and back on my feet in time for my US True Tour'. "Avicii was a genius and a music innovator, and I cannot believe he is no longer with us".

Just past year he announced that he would be returning to making music. "Many of you thought that was it".

"@Avicii was a genius and a music innovator, and I cannot believe he is no longer with us".
