    Avicii is nothing if not dedicated. The Swedish EDM superstar needs to undergo gallbladder surgery, but he put those plans on hold in order to honor his performances commitments and to play as many shows as he can before having the procedure.

    He went to Brisbane last weekend for a gig, but instead beelined to a medical facility since he was suffering from stomach problems. He canceled his appearance at the Future Music Festival in Brisbane and Perth on Saturday and Sunday. He was able to leave the hospital on Thursday, March 7.

    He tweeted: "Finally out of the hospital and on recovery mode and trying to pull everything together in order to do as many shows as possible…I'm also really sorry for everyone who wanted to see me in Brisbane and Perth, I really did everything I could days prior to get better but I wasn't allowed to leave hospital until now…I was gonna remove my gallbladder now which might be behind all of this too, but luckily I'm able to do that at a later time! Right now I'm just really relieved to be out of the hospital and to be able do the shows that I can."

    Avicii, take care of your health!

    We admire the fact that he wants to postpone surgery to play shows, but it is important to address health concerns. He's only human.
