Avicii has become one of the biggest names in the EDM world over the past few years.

And even though his career is still climbing to entirely new Levels, the Swedish DJ and producer announced he would retire from touring after this year!

On Tuesday, the 26-year-old posted a note on Facebook, telling his team and fans who came to see him on tour that he would be “forever grateful” for all their love.

The artist then shared that a recent cross-country road trip with his friends and team helped him realize that he needed to pull back from touring constantly.

He wrote:

“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.”

Avicii has regularly performed live since dropping his 2011 hit Levels, and continued with a second wind in 2013 with the release of his chart-topper Wake Me Up.

And although the DJ teased that he will release a third studio album in 2016, he revealed that it will also be his last year of tours, adding:

“I will however never let go of music ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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. Let’s make them go out with a bang!”

We’re sad that Avicii won’t be touring anymore but also applaud the DJ for putting his own well being first and focusing on the music!
