Avicii toured nonstop from 2009-2016. He was forced to stop touring because of health problems and anxiety. He had suffered from pancreatitis attacks from excessive drinking. Since quitting touring and just focusing on the studio he had turned his life around and was about to release three new EPs this year. Avicii will be remembered as one of the fathers of EDM and one of the main reasons why dance music is in the pop charts today.
