Last night at Ultra was significant for Avicii in more ways than one. Those who followed last year's festival know that he didn't end up playing his mainstage time slot due to emergency surgery. He was instead replaced with deadmau5 (who subsequently trolled the audience with "Levels" and an old McDonald remix of "Animals" by Garrix).
Avicii's return also marked the second time he has used the stage as a platform for previewing a new album. His set transitioned to STORIES, and the crowd seemingly reacted well to the new tunes. This is in contrast to the mixed reviews he received in 2013 when he previewed True accompanied with live bluegrass.
After some shaky news the past few years surrounding Avicii, it's nice to see that he is back on his feet and once again pushing the envelope.
While we wait for the live set to be (hopefully) posted, check out Avicii's set from the 2012 Ultra:
