The DJ/producer behind the hit song “Wake Me Up”was scheduled to perform at Ultra Music Festival in Miami this weekend, but he suffered a setback Wednesday morning. Avicii Tweeted he was having stomach pains before his flight to Florida, but he decided to travel anyway. Upon landing, he was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. The next morning, however, the pain returned so he went back to the doctor, who then informed him he needed urgent gall bladder surgery.
TMZ reports that his operation was a success, and he will spend a few more days recovering at the hospital. So Avicii will be replaced at Ultra by Deadmau5. Avicii says he doesn’t expect this to affect his upcoming tour. Ah, that “Dear Boy”.
