Which program did Avicii use

Avicii: Building in Stockholm is named after him

Musician Avicii died in 2018. The Ericsson Globe in Stockholm is renamed in his honor. This should also set an example in the fight against mental illness, as the musician's father said.

When the news made the rounds in April 2018 that EDM artist Avicii had died, the music world was shocked: it had lost one of the biggest stars. The Swedish DJ, who turned only 28, had previously suffered from health problems and depression. With his hits like "Wake Me Up" and "Hey Brother", Tim Bergling, Avicii's real name, will be remembered - and in future also as the namesake of the Stockholm Ericsson Globe. As the venue announced on Wednesday, it will be called Avicii Arena in the future.

The artist's father, Klas Bergling, said: "It was a significant milestone in Tim's career playing here nine years ago and he would be very proud that this iconic building will bear his name." Bergling, who set up a foundation to fight mental illness after the death of his son, also hopes the arena will now become a symbol to prevent mental illness among young people in Sweden.

To celebrate the name change, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra released an orchestral version of Avicii's hit "For a Better Day". The only 14-year-old Ella Tiritiello took over the vocal part. The song was visually processed with a laser-assisted music video that was filmed on the roof of the venue.
