On March 29, 2016 Avicii announced that he was retiring from performing live and touring. Right before the Swedish DJ made this announcement, BBC announced that they had acquired the rights to his documentary “True Stories“.
The documentary tells the story of the DJ’s rise in fame and phenomenal success story. It recounts the superstar DJ’s life that he lived from the release of his first album True to the release of his second album Stories. The movie will be coming to cinemas internationally this fall although it was rumored to be released last fall.
In True Stories fans can see Avicii’s career path which included him posting tracks online, playing at some of the biggest arenas, and fighting sickness. Director Levan Tsikurishvili who has been around Avicii everyday since 2013 will be able to make the movie have a personal touch and give everyone a very in-depth look at the highs and lows of an international DJ’s career.
The biographical movie will also included 30 minutes of exclusive concert material from Avicii’s last show. His final show was his farewell to performing live and took place at Ushuaia Beach Club in Ibiza.
Even though Avicii has retired from touring he has returned to the spotlight recently. He has teased new music throughout the past year and released his brand new EP ‘Avīci (01)’last month. Also released was the first episode of his AviciiFM Radio Show with more episodes promised to go LIVE in the future.
Stay tuned to relive the magic of Avicii’s live performances. Although premiere dates have not been announced True Stories will definitely be a movie for all EDM fans to look out for.
