1. Avicii Bows Out, Dillon and Mello Step In
In an interesting but not so shocking turn of events, Avicii has cancelled his final three tour dates at Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclubt in Las Vegas due to personal reasons. The men they have named as his replacement? None other than the masked Marshmello and Dillon Francis.
Marshmello has taken the dance music world by storm this year with his fresh blend of bouncy, pop tunes with a little bit of trap mixed in. Already hitting the festival circuit hard this summer, Marshmello’s first performance at Encore comes this Sunday, a day after he will perform at Electric Daisy Carnival New York.
If you already had tickets to Avicii’s previously scheduled performance, you should expect to be contacted with information regarding the new shows.
Due to personal reasons @Avicii has cancelled the remainder of his 2016 @EncoreBeachClub and @XSLasVegas dates, as a result we are pleased to announce that @DillonFrancis will be his replacement this Saturday. Tickets holders will be contacted via email with further instructions.
