Avicii underwent a successful gallbladder removal surgery after pulling out of the Ultra Music Festival this weekend.
TMZ reported that Avicii is currently still at the hospital recovering from his surprise surgery. On Thursday, the superstar DJ was rushed to the hospital with abdominal pains when he found out his gallbladder needed to be removed. He also revealed through his Twitter account that he had a ruptured appendix which was also removed during surgery.
It is unclear for how much longer he must postpone his events, but since the surgery was successful, it should not be too long. Avicii was not the only DJ forced to cancel his appearance at the highly-anticipated Ultra Festival.
The Miami News Times also reported that Laidback Luke was forced to cancel his appearance because his wife went into labor. A member from DaDa Life also flew out to Sweden for an emergency surgery, canceling the groups appearance at the Miami festival as well. Afrojack was also hospitalized on Thursday due to exhaustion, but will be at the festival.
Lucky for EDM fans who attended the show, Deadmau5 replaced Avicii as a main act. The festival continues through the weekend in Miami, FL.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for all the DJs and their families after this unusual coincidence!
