Avicii anuncia su retirada como Dj

Sentimos traer malas noticias para los fans de Tim Bergling, más conocido en el circuito como Avicii. El sueco finalmente se retira, al menos de las cabinas, como ha anunciado en su página oficial de Facebook esta mañana.

Muchas han sido las especulaciones que se han creado de un tiempo a esta parte sobre su continuidad en la escena, ya que últimamente, y a pesar de su corta edad de tan sólo 26 años, el sueco ha tenido bastantes problemas de salud que le han apartado de los escenarios en varias ocasiones. Avicii comenzaba su comunicado agradeciendo el soporte de su equipo y el apoyo incondicional de todos sus fans :

“Gracias por haberme dejado cumplir muchos de mis sueños. Siempre estaré agradecido por haber vivido y logrado todo lo que tengo gracias a la ayuda de mi equipo y de mis queridos fans. Gracias a todos mis compañeros de negocio por construir un nuevo movimiento que cogió al mundo por sorpresa y en el medio del cual yo tuve la suerte de estar. Gracias a mis socios a lo largo de los años, quienes creían en lo que hacía y me ayudaron a amplificar mi trabajo en una presencia global”.

Según explica, el punto de inflexión fue hace dos semanas cuando realizaba un viaje junto a sus amigos por Estados Unidos:

“Hace dos semanas tuve tiempo de conducir por todo Estados Unidos con mis amigos y mi equipo, simplemente para ver y pensar las cosas de otra forma. Realmente me ayudó a darme cuenta de que necesitaba hacer un cambio que ya llevaba tiempo queriendo tener”.

El creador de temas como “Seek Bromance”, “Levels”, “Silhouettes”, “Wake Me Up” o “Waiting For Love” ha confirmado que seguirá con sus shows y tour hasta finalizar el año y tranquiliza un poco a sus fans prometiendo que no se desligará de la música totalmente, ya que seguirá produciendo.

“No dejaré nunca la música. Seguiré hablando a mis seguidores a través de ella, pero he decidido que este 2016 será mi último año de tour y shows, y una parte de mi dice que nunca digas nunca, que podría volver… pero realmente no lo voy a hacer”.

A continuación os dejamos el comunicado oficial de Avicii, en inglés:

Hello world,
Thank you for letting me fulfil so many of my dreams. I will be forever grateful to have experienced and accomplished all that I have with the help of the team around me and my beloved fans. Thank you to all my peers in the business for building a new movement that took the world by storm and I was lucky enough to be in the middle of it. Thank you to all my partners through the years who believed in what I have created and wanted to amplify my work to a truly global presence.
First and foremost thank you to my brother and partner Ash, its truly been a crazy run and its only been possible through our collaborative efforts, yin and yang, brother to brother manager to artist. I will always appreciate this road with you no matter where it leads from here. I could write so much more but our journey is far from finished.
Thank you to everyone at At Night, a special thanks to everyone who has been a part of the team since day one and without your hard dedicated work I wouldn’t be here. Thank you especially to Carl Vernersson, Filip Holm, Marcus Lindgren, Victor Lee and Panos Ayassotelis.
Thank you to the teams of Johnny Tenander, Per Sundin, Max Hole, Neil Jacobson and Joakim Johansson in no particular order. Your loyalty and hard work on the label and publishing fronts have allowed me to always feel like we have had someone backing us in your court, and that has given me the musical confidence I’ve needed. Thank you.
Thank you Robb Harker, Malik Adunni, David Brady, Andrew Mckeough, Rob Woo and Felix Alfonzo – you helped introduce touring to me in as much of a functional way possible for a kid my age and my road could have been alot darker if it wasnt for your personal support at such a crucial point. Thank you Semi Baddredine for all your personal support, talks and help in me growing up. I have a weird feeling i could be dead If it wasn’t for you and I will always love and support you.
Thank you to Ciara Davy, Michael “Curly” Jobson and the MJM team, Harry Bird and Charlie Alves for making my touring years amazing during the best of times and durable during the worst. I hope we will find a way to keep on working together.
Thank you to all artists, musicians and songwriters who have helped me develop musically and personally, the list is long but there is no one I’ve worked with where I haven’t learnt something.
A huge thank you to all my friends in the industry. Thank you Jesse Waits at XS for having been such a huge friend to me and a rock in stormy waters. Also huge thanks in no particular order to Jonathan Schwartz, Austin Leeds, Pete Moutso, Dave Grutman, Noah Tepperberg, Jason Strauss, Sean Christie, Carlos Correal, Rob Fernandez, Eddie Dean, Adam Russakoff, Mike Satsky, Trecia Laird, Lisa Pillette, Marcella Barrett, Zoe Stainsby, Joe Bellioti, Yann and Romain Pissenem, John and Paul in Ibiza, Fricko, Sean, Marcus, Awat, Lucas, Ludde, Calle, Johannes, Filip, Levan, Otto, Oliver, my brothers David and Anton, my sister Linda, My parents Anki and Klas. Thank you to all the ones I didn’t include in this moment. There has been too many people to mention in one sitting that had an impact on me in this industry and Im sorry I’m forgetting some of you. But last but not least thank you to every fan who has ever bought a ticket or snuck in, bought a song or downloaded it, commented on posts or hated at them. Its your thoughts and ideas about the music that helped me evolve and I do owe everything I have to you.
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.
Yours forever,
Tim Bergling / Avicii

Come on people, we have all seen the signs…
