It only took them all of, well, less than five years of touring and recording as a trio to have taken the world by storm. Known as the EDM superstars, DJs and producers Axwell, Angello, and Ingrosso are arguably the largest act in their world, playing exclusively as “Swedish House Mafia” and gaining a gargantuan fan base faster than you can say their names.
A whole lot faster than their peers could’ve done, if you asked us.
Did we also mentioned that their unprecedented success in dance music was also rightly justified when they became the first dance act to headline both Milton Keynes and Madison Square Garden? And that their Madison Square Garden tickets sold out in just nine minutes? Yes, nine. Count the seconds!
But just yesterday, Swedish House Mafia or SHM, as they were affectionately called by EDM fans, announced that they will be going their separate ways after their last tour. In an official statement on their website, the trio said, “We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on this journey. We came, we raved, we loved.”
Admittedly, this came as a shock to EDM fans worldwide and the media is still on fire with reports and reactions to the announcement. But at least partygoers on the other side of the world will still have opportunities to catch them before they’re over for good.
And let’s not forget that Ingrosso, Axwell, and Angello will still continue to work independently.
SHM will play their final show in the UK at Milton Keynes Bowl before finishing their residency at Ushuaia in Ibiza. Their last show in slated for their home country, Sweden, on the 24th of November 2012. There’s also one additional date that will be their last ever gig as a trio that will only be announced in August.
Coming to Malaysia? One can only hope:

For what it’s worth, thanks for the epic tracks, Swedish House Mafia. And goodbye.
