A little early for April 1st? Or is this legit albeit a little funny (with the texting)? What do you think. LOL.Avicii Announces Retirement In Emotional Letter To Fans… And Also Gives Out His Number
Posted: 30 March, 2016 by Uce
One of the biggest DJs in the world, Avicii, has officially announced his retirement from live performances in an emotional letter to his fans.
The electronic music DJ posted a thanks-filled letter to his website yesterday afternoon that announced he will no longer be performing any live shows; crushing the hopes and dreams of many a raver.
"Thank you for letting me fulfil so many of my dreams. I will be forever grateful to have experiences and accomplished all that I have..." the 26-year-old wrote. "I've become an adult while growing as an artist, I've come to know myself better and realise that there's so much I want to do with my life."
The 'Wake Me Up' composer revealed that recent travels with his friends helped him realise how much there was to see and how little time he had to do it all.
"It really helped me realise that I needed to make the change that I'd been struggling with for a while.
I have too little [time] left for the life of a real person behind the artist."
But for all you Avicii-loving festival-goers, don't fret! The Swedish DJ says this (probably) won't be the last you see of him and that, thankfully, he's not retiring from making music completely.
"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.
One part of me can never say never, I could be back... but I won't be right back..."
Then, just when you think that's the end of the letter, he drops this sneaky super small-text PS note down the bottom.
"P.S I've got a new phone so you can text me re all this [number]. Please bare with me I might not be super quick to reply. X"
Did he seriously give out his number and encourage his millions of fans to chuck him a casual text?
Either he doesn't realise just how big his fanbase is... or he's officially the friendliest celebrity in the world with a whole heap of time on his hands.
