A harrowing documentary in which Avicii has chilled foretold his own death will return to Netflix next week.

Avicii: True Stories followed the tragic DJ – who committed suicide on April 20 – and the events that preceded his last performance in Ibiza in August 2016.

Shot from acclaimed director Levan Tsikurishvili between 2012 and 2016, he showed Avicii – Tim Bergling's real name – sharing the fears he was dying to die & # 39; if he had not stopped turning.

But despite his disturbing prediction and intense battles with the anxiety and abuse of alcohol, the late Swedish DJ said he was forced to do other concerts.

"I told them this. I will not be able to play," the star – who was found dead in Oman at the age of only 28 – said.

He feared the pressure would kill him

After doing 813 shows in eight years, the exhausted star insisted: "I said, like, I'm going to die. I said so many times. And so I don't want to feel that I should think about doing another concert. "

"When I decided to quit, I was expecting something completely different," he said.

"I was expecting support, especially considering everything I've been through.

"I was very open with everyone I work with and everyone who knows me.

He announced his retirement two years before his death

"Everybody knows that I was anxious and that I tried. I didn't expect people to try to put pressure on me to do more concerts.

"They saw how bad I felt doing it, but I had a lot of rejection when I wanted to stop doing concerts."

The film ends with Tim sitting serenely on a beach in Madagascar that fired his manager and retired from the tour – a final that Tsikurishvili later admitted turned out to be "chilling".

At a cost of £ 180,000 a night, Avicii has consistently passed the line-up for the world's biggest festivals, working with Chris Martin of Coldplay, Nile Rodgers and David Guetta.

His family said he "couldn't go on"

But the timid star was not at ease in the spotlight and turned to alcohol to cope with her debilitating anxiety.

As a result he suffered from acute pancreatitis of only 21 years and in 2014 he removed his appendix and gall bladder.

And after his death, his family said that Tim "could not go on".

"Our beloved Tim was a researcher, a fragile artistic soul in search of answers to existential questions," they said.

"He wanted to find peace."

Netflix was originally authorized to reproduce the docu-film from December 2016 to December 2017, which led fans to accuse Netflix of removing it after his suicide.
