Avicii, The Swedish artist behind the hit song "Wake Me Up" was scheduled to perform in Miami on Saturday, but was hospitalized with severe abdominal pains.

"I woke up on Wednesday morning with serious pain, but I flew to Miami anyway, hoping that it would go away," he said in a statement Friday. "The pain was still there when I landed, so I went straight to hospital. I was treated and left later that night."
