Ever since announcing the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album, Stories, Avicii has turned it into overdrive. The Swedish superstar has held down his Ibiza and Las Vegas residencies, spent time in the studio to perfect the LP and played various other shows across the globe. Now, it seems like Avicii is running on empty, as he just announced that he is postponing his scheduled tour dates.
This move comes roughly one year after the “Wake Me Up” producer cancelled his appearance at TomorrowWorld due to health concerns. Additionally, Avicii cancelled his performance at Ultra Music Festival 2014 for an emergency surgery. The shows that will be impacted are at XS and Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, Storm Festival in Shanghai and Japan’s Fuji-Ku Conifer Forest and Maishima Special Stage.
In a statement provided to Billboard, Avicii states:
“I look forward to keep being innovative with my team in leading a bigger change than just with my music. In moving my tour promotional responsibilities to next year, I have a great opportunity to focus on myself and spend time trying to grow up in a way I never got the chance to – normal, or as normal as it could get. My team, label and family have encouraged me to do that and I realize not many in my position get that opportunity.”
