Swedish DJ Avicii, one of the world`s biggest dance music stars, has died in Muscat, Oman, on Friday. He was 28.

In a statement, his representative said, "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii."

"The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time," he added.

No more details about the death were provided. Oman police and state media had no immediate report late Friday night on the artist`s death.

Avicii`s club anthems include Wake Me Up, Levels, and recently, Lonely Together with Rita Ora.

The electronic dance music (EDM) star, who reportedly made $250,000 (£180,000) a night on tour, had struggled with some health issues in the past, having his gall bladder and appendix removed in 2014.

Avicii, the Grammy-nominated electronic dance DJ who performed sold-out concerts for feverish fans around the world and also had huge success on US pop radio, announced his retirement from touring in 2016, partly because of the health problems.
