Avicii tribute concert to benefit mental health

A concert featuring the music of late star Avicii is being planned in Sweden to raise money for suicide prevention.

Proceeds of the show in Stockholm on December 5 will support the work of the new Tim Bergling Foundation, named after the musician who took his own life in April 2018.

His songs Wake Me Up!, Addicted To You and the posthumous SOS topped the dance music charts.

The concert will feature many of the singers, including Adam Lambert and Rita Ora, who were on Avicii’s recordings and will be the first time many of them have been performed live.

David Guetta and Kygo are among the electronic dance music stars who will perform opening sets.

Organisers said tickets will go on sale on Thursday.
