Avicii's death reminds us the importance of mental health

April 20 the music world lost a profound DJ and musician, Avicii. Avicci was found dead in his hotel room in Oman, he was 28 years old and had been in the music industry since 2008, but his music really blew up in 2011.

Avicii had been in love with music ever since he was little. At the age of eight he started mixing and making music. His discography includes: two studio albums, one compilation album, one remix album, one mix album, 48 singles, and 29 music videos. Avicii found his love for music at a very young age, and it only grew as he did.

He collaborated with 35 different songwriters, DJ’s, or other musicians in his career. This made him very well liked. He had such a buoyant soul, who put so much love and thought into his music. Steve Aoki, a very close friend to Avicii. Aoki, said he taught him the whole meaning of their career was to have fun with it, and not freak out about the performance.

Despite being a shining light for others, in his life there was also darkness. Avicii has had multiple health problems including: his appendix removed, gallbladder removed, being hospitalized for multiple days at different times, and a heavy drinking problem. He had said in a recent interview (about six months ago) that if he continued living this lifestyle it was going to kill him. Little did anybody know that six short months later Avicii would take his own life, because he just couldn’t handle it anymore. The busy lifestyle, the crazy tours, the long nights, the constant partying was too much for him. He had said he wanted to quit touring and doing shows, but was pressured into continuing by close friends and people in the music industry. All the crazy tours, long nights, and constant partying became too much for what Avicii wanted and could handle.

Mental health is such a huge problem in our world today. People try to suppress the pain or illness when they really need help. Men especially are known to try and suppress their problems because in society men should not be viewed as being weak, such as seeking help for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. This horrific societal trend needs to be broken. Seeking help for mental illness does not by any means make you weak. If you ever get the feeling you want to hurt yourself, please reach out and contact the suicide hotline, 1-800-273-TALK. This goes for any person, man or woman, child or adult. Somebody will be there to help you.

  7. All are required to attend strike. In the event the show is selling extremely well, Sunday 2/25 will be used to add a matinee and extend the run. Currently, there’s only a small chance we will extend. Because of weather, sales may be down - and Thursday has not sold well at all. A decision will be made by Friday morning 2/23 (if not before).
