Avicii Out of the Hospital and Well After Acute Pancreatitis Scare
The Swedish DJ, model and producer, born Tim Bergling, had only just arrived in Australia to headline the Future Music Festival when he was taken to the hospital for severe pains. The health issues forced him to remain in a Brisbane hospital for six days, missing the Future festival's events in both Brisbane and Perth.
"It sucked so much that I had to cancel but it was impossible, it was the most painful thing," he told Australia's The Herald Sun.
Still, he's aware that it could have been much worse. "I am lucky that this is an acute case, not chronic and not life-threatening," he added. "I think I will do all right with the pain medication."
Thankfully, Avicii will be back onstage to perform the remainders of the Future festival, even postponing a gall bladder surgery to get back to work -- but he won't be too animated. His doctors warned against too much movement until he recovers completely.
Get well soon!
