Avicii has been forced to suspend all touring and promotional activities, while he recovers from issues related to surgeries earlier this year.

Affected gigs include his headlining act at TomorrowWorld in Georgia,  Las Vegas residencies at XS and Encore Beach Club and an Asian tour planned for October.

He will convalesce in his hometown, Stockholm, until he has recovered to a point where he is able to resume work on his second artist album next year, his representative told Billboard.

Avicii, real name Tim Berger, underwent surgery to remove his gallbladder and appendix in March, preventing him from performing at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, as well as Las Vegas residencies in April.




"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,” he wrote on his Facebook page in March. "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."
