Avicii has today announced that he is retiring from touring in an open letter he posted to his fans on his website.

The DJ had many number one hits, including I Could Be The One and Levels, but has decided to stop touring in order to focus on his other interests.

The Swedish-born producer said: "My path has been filled with success but it hasn't come without its bumps.

"I've become an adult while growing as an artist, I've come to know myself better and realise that there's so much I want to do with my life.”

He promised his fans that he will continue to produce music and added "never say never," giving fans hope he might tour again some day.
