Avicii is renowned for his spectacular live shows, bringing audiences to ecstatic moments of party bliss and 'driving the crowd bonkers" (Rolling Stone).  The highly-anticipated tour that sold out shows in minutes in cities throughout Europe including London, Stockholm, Paris and Amsterdam, will showcase an all-new, world-class production.

After just three years of performing, Avicii rocketed to the #3 position on DJ Mag's yearly poll of the Top 100 DJs and has appeared on Forbes Most Powerful Artists Under 30 in 2013 and 2014.   His first album, last year's TRUE, was named Album of the Year by Elektro while the New York Times called Avicii "savvy and timely," and "an artist carrying today – and tomorrow – on his shoulders."  Dancing Astronaut wrote, "…timeless…an hour of excellence."  "Wake Me Up," the first single from the album,  reached #1 in 81 countries, sold over 8.5 million copies worldwide and is a triple platinum-certified single in the US.  The song's video has been watched over 235 million times on YouTube alone with views continuing to grow each day. "Hey Brother," his current single, is exploding at radio while its video has received raves around the world.  Watch the video here:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cp6mKbRTQY
