Fans of the Swedish electronic musician Tim Bergling, better known to the world as Avicii, should see him while they can. In an emotional letter published to Avicii.com on Tuesday, the popular electronic artist announced that his 2016 tour would be his last.

"My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I'm grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me," Avicii wrote.

"I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist. I will however never let go of music I will continue to speak to my fans through it, but I've decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let's make them go out with a bang!"

He also thanked not just his fans from around the world, but the people that were vocal in the distaste for the DJ-producer.

"Thank you to every fan who has ever bought a ticket or snuck in, bought a song or downloaded it, commented on posts or hated at them," Avicii wrote. "It's your thoughts and ideas about the music that helped me evolve and I do owe everything I have to you."

According to the post, which also featured long paragraphs thanking specific individuals, Avicii, who had cancelled shows back in 2014 due to discomfort after having his gall bladder and appendix removed according to the Hollywood Reporter, had the change of heart regarding his career during a recent road trip.

"Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the US with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way," he wrote. "It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I'd been struggling with for a while."
