Avicii Performed Final Show Of His Career At ‘Ushuaia’ Ibiza This Weekend
On August 28th, 2016, fans in attendance at Ibiza’s famous, Ushuaia Nightclub, got to see Avicii perform live for the last time. This wasn’t a surprise to anyone as it was announced ahead of time, however, at the young age of 26 (almost 27), Tim Bergling, known to the world as Avicii decided to press pause on the decks for good.
It’s truly unfortunate to see someone, that most of us in the EDM World grew up listening to and idolizing, call it quits so soon, especially someone who’s stature will go down with some of the greats of all-time, but sometimes, enough is enough.
Although Avicii’s team hasn’t released an official statement as to why the 26 year old is retiring, many can speculate that it has to do with his recent health issues and the perils of intense touring, traveling, and partying.
Regardless, there are two dates Avicii fans should now forever remember; July 28th, 2011 – the day Avicii brought the world “Levels,” and turned the EDM World upside-down and August 28th, 2016 – the day Avicii left the EDM World with a legacy that will be remembered forever and the day that Avicii left fans with longing questions that can only be answered in time.
Avicii played at the legendary Creamfields on August 27th, so until we get video from Avicii’s Final Performance, check out what things looked like at his second-to-last show here:
