In a sad turn of events, it appears the Swedish DJ and music producer, Avicii, will no longer be able to perform the remaining dates of his residency in Vegas.
Citing “personal reasons,” XS Las Vegas and Encore Beach Club posted the news via social media indicating that the 26 year old artist would no longer be appearing. Replacement acts announced so far are Dillon Francis taking his place this Saturday, May 14th at XS Las Vegas and Marshmello getting an awesome opportunity to fill-in for Avicii the next day at Encore Beach Club.
Due to personal reasons @Avicii has cancelled the remainder of his 2016 @EncoreBeachClub and @XSLasVegas dates, as a result we are pleased to announce that @MarshmelloMusic will be his replacement this Sunday. Tickets holders will be contacted via email with further instructions.

It all comes on the heels of an emotional letter Avicii posted to his fans and followers less than 2 months ago, where he announced that he would be retiring from touring. While the Vegas residency seems to be discontinued, Billboard reports that representatives for Avicii “clarified that other tour dates would not be affected.”
