Swedish electronic music DJ Avicii found dead at age 28

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

Nile Rodgers has offered his love to "little bro" Avicii following the Swedish DJ's death.

"We had the honor to have known him and admired him both as an artist and the handsome person that he was", said Prince Carl Philip and his wife Sofia, adding: "He made our wedding unforgettable with his fantastic music".

Former One Route star Liam Payne tweeted: "Oh my god really devastated for Avicii very very unhappy information method to younger". "He was an incredibly talented young man who is gone from this world way too soon".

Such sad news to hear about Avicii passing. The DJ had been working on new music up until this point which makes the news all the more sudden. "It was not the shows and not the music". Born as Tim Bergling, the DJ was known for his EDM hits like "Wake Me Up", "Without You" and "Lonely Together". It was always very hard for me.

"Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do".

Tributes have poured in from the world of music following the loss of life of famous person DJ Avicii on the age of 28.

Avicii went on to say that Ash was "a bit of everything to me, partner brother father and friend".




However, he did not stop making music, releasing a six-track EP album in August 2017. He won two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and was nominated for two Grammys. In 2011, his single "Levels" was nominated for a Grammy as was his 2012 collaboration with Dave Guettta called "Sunshine". He also helped produce Madonna's last album.

DJ Deadmau5 wrote: "My sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the chums, followers and households of @Avicii". So tragic. Goodbye sweet Tim.

He also appeared in the documentary Avicii: True Stories, a chronicle of his quick rise and turbulent career.

Avicii's deteriorating health was widely known, with a diagnosis of acute pancreatitis and subsequent surgeries eventually leading to the artist retiring from touring in 2016. That decision led him to retire from touring entirely, saying the scene was not for him.

"It's been a very insane journey". Asked how Ash found him in the first place, Avicii said, "He ran across some of my stuff on the blogs and sent me a Facebook message asking to meet up for a coffee!" Less than a year later, he delivered another banger - this time he partnered with Aloe Blacc to take over the charts with "Wake Me Up".

Fellow British DJ Calvin Harris called his death "devastating news", adding on Twitter that Avicii was: "a lovely soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do". "My condolences go out to his family, friends and fans". Avicii has touched us all with his music and his legacy will live on for many years to come.
