If you're an Avicii fan and you saw his gig at Dublin's Marlay Park last summer, count yourself lucky - it seems that the Swedish DJ/producer has retired.

Tim Bergling, to give him his real name, gave a lengthy explanation for his decision on his website. He posted a long list of 'thank yous' before explaining that he wanted to basically take some time off and experience 'real life' for a spell.

He wrote:

"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.

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. Let’s make them go out with a bang!"

He ended with "One part of me can never say never, I could be back ...but I won’t be right back." before bizarrely posting his phone number and encouraging fans to text him 're: all this'. It's +46769436383, by the way.

The full post can be read here, but basically can be summed up as: 'I'm 26, I've made over €60 million in the last few years, and now I wanna go and spend it. Later, suckaaaaaas!'
