Swedish House Mafia break up
Swedish House Mafia, a massively popular DJ group, said on their website that they would call it quits after an upcoming tour.
The trio, Axwell (Axel Christofer Hedfors), Steve Angello (Steven Angello Josefsson Fragogiannis) and Sebastian Ingrosso, last year became the first ever electronic dance act to play at Madison Square Garden and sold out the legendary New York arena in a matter of minutes.
“Today we want to share with you, that the tour we are about to go on will be our last,” the Swedish trio, who began performing together in 2008, wrote.
“We want to thank every single one of you that came with us on this journey. We came, we raved, we loved.”
The Swedes are set to kick off their final tour next month and said their penultimate show would be held on home turf, in Stockholm, on November 24.
The trio did not explain why they were bringing their massive success to an end, but Swedish daily Expressen cited sources saying they all wanted to spend more time with their families.
“All three in the band have children, and several weddings are lined up,” the paper reported.
Mr Agnello is performing solo in Malta on Thursday as part of Malta Music Week, alongside his younger sibling AN21 and DJ Max Vangeli.
