After entering the hospital upon his arrival in Miami this week, Avicii has issued a statement about his health. Doctors have told him that he needs to have his gall bladder removed, which has forced him to cancel is appearance at Ultra Music Festival. He has assured fans that he will recover in time to launch his US True Tour. Deadmau5, who once ranted about how awful UMF is for fans, will take his place on the bill.
“I’m really sorry but as some of you have already heard, I will not be playing Ultra Festival this weekend.
My fans know that I have had issues in the past with my stomach and pancreatitis…I woke up on Wednesday morning with serious pain but I flew to Miami anyway, hoping that it would go away. The pain was still there when I landed so I went straight to hospital. I was treated and left later that night.
Unfortunately, the pain came back yesterday afternoon and I returned to the hospital where they admitted me to stay overnight.
My doctors have decided to operate and remove my gall bladder tomorrow morning.
It’s a routine procedure and all going well, I expect to be fully recovered and back on my feet in time for my US True Tour.
Thanks for your concern everyone, it means a lot to me!”
