Swedish House Mafia Call It Quits
Sad news for Swedish House Mafia fans: the super-DJ trio is calling it a night for good.
The group announced via its website on Saturday, June 23 that their next tour is their final one, writing, “Today we want to share with you that the tour we are about to go on will be our last. We want to thank every single one of you who came on this journey. We came, we raved, we loved.”
Though Swedish House Mafia enjoyed massive success, headlining Coachella in April and selling out Madison Square Garden a mere year after their first release (‘One’), the group’s members (Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello) were always focused on their own solo careers as well. Billboard reports that the trio’s manager, Amy Thomson, put it simply: “Swedish House Mafia comes last.”
Billboard notes that the group was never intended to tour formally nor to even release any albums — but they garnered so much runaway success that it’d have been foolish not to capitalize on it.
Swedish House Mafia will host a handful of shows in Europe throughout the summer and fall, but fans on this side of the pond need not worry — they alluded to some U.S. dates, writing, “The final leg of this journey will be announced in August.” So stay tuned!
