The regretted Dj’s family members have released a statement in which they thanked fans and friends for their many tributes and support. As you know by now, Avicii unexpectedly passed away at the age of only 28.
‘We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother. We’re so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have precious memories of his songs. Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world. We are very grateful for the privacy during this extremely difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way. With love, The Tim Bergling Family,’ the statement read.
A lot of fellow DJs and other artists have already paid tribute to the Swedish DJ, honoring his memory and incredible talent.
For instance, Nick Jonas performed the 2013 hit Wake Me Up at his show in Akron, Ohio.
Meanwhile, DJ Kygo even closed his Coachella performance with a memorial for Avicii.
‘Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard, but today is a very sad day for music. Earlier today I got the news that Avicii passed away [at] only 28 years old. Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration, and he was the reason that I started making electronic music, so I do not think I would have been on this stage tonight if it was not for him,’ DJ Kygo said.
‘I know he’s inspired millions of other producers out there. So I want to end my set tonight with my favorite Avicii song,’ he added before performing the 2017 single Without You while a picture of the pioneer was being shown.
