At the tender age of 26, Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, has just played what has been said will be his final show. A few months back, he announced that he would retire from live performances via a letter on his website. He thanked everyone who had helped him along the way, including his fans, then explained, "My path has been filled with success but it hasn't come without its bumps. I've become an adult while growing as an artist, I've come to know myself better and realize that there's so much I want to do with my life. I have strong interests in different areas but there's so little time to explore them.
"Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way. It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I'd been struggling with for a while.
"My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I'm grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist."
In 2015, Avicii was the sixth highest paid DJ in the world, raking in $19 million dollars. However, he did not make the 2016 list.
His final show took place at Ushuaïa Ibiza, completing his five year residency at the club.
