Avicii Cancels Rest Of 2015 Shows At Wynn Las Vegas Clubs

Wynn Las Vegas says its resident DJ Avicii is cancelling the remainder of his shows at XS and Encore Beach Club this year to take a break.

The resort-casino on the Las Vegas Strip announced Wednesday that DJs Diplo, Skrillex, Dillon Francis and Zedd would replace Avicii at six scheduled shows in September and October. Ticket-holders can attend those shows or seek a refund through wantickets.com.

Wynn Las Vegas whose longtime nightclub director Jesse Waits recently left for a new hotel-casino project across the street says Avicii will return in 2016.

Avicii says in a statement he’s taking the break after a busy festival, tour and album production schedule. The DJ is also cancelling appearances in China and Japan but says he plans a larger tour next year.
