Oh no, not again!
This means that his shows at XS and Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, Storm Festival in Shanghai, and Japan’s Fuji-Ku Conifer Forest and Maishima Special Stage are dunzo. At least for now.
In a statement exclusively obtained by Billboard, Avicii’s reps claimed that it’s due to various things namely an overloaded summer schedule, the pressures of delivering his sophomore album aka “Stories”, as well as his directorial debut on 2 music videos for new singles “For a Better Day” and “Pure Grinding”. As such, all remaining shows have been moved to next year for a “larger tour initiative and a well deserved break”.
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.
Oo-kay. As long as he’s not ill again, we guess? Whatever floats his boat, yo.
We’ll leave you now with Avicii’s directorial debut, the official music videos for both “For a Better Day” and “Pure Grinding”. Enjoy:
