Dance king Avicii looks to to return to the UAE next year. Speaking from the world music festival Mawazine in Morocco, the Swedish DJ shed light on the heath troubles that saw him cancel a slew of dates last year including a Dubai show at Atlantis The Palm back in April.

“That was definitely one of the darkest chapters in my life,” he said. “I had to get my appendix and gall bladder removed. But it did give me a chance to slow down a little bit as I have been constantly working and performing for over five years.” Regarding his UAE return, Avicii said “I will come back. I need to have a make-up date with Dubai.”
