One of electronic dance music’s biggest names, Avicii, will play the West Virginia University Coliseum on Thursday, Sept. 20.

Showtime is set for 7:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. Tickets may be purchased at the Mountainlair and Creative Arts Center box offices, online at http://ticketmaster.com, or by calling 304-293-SHOW or 800-745-3000.

In 2011, Avicii exploded onto the mainstream music scene with his breakthrough, multiplatinum-selling “LE7ELS,” which gained airplay across the world for its infectious and innovative electronic sound.

Beginning his career at 18, the self-taught, fresh-faced Swede has had greater success at 22 than most could ever hope for in a lifetime. With chart-toppers “Seek Bromance,” “My Feelings For You,” “Fade into Darkness,” and “Silhouettes,” Avicii has risen from bedroom music-maker to international superstar. He has headlined Ultra Music Festival with Madonna, completed a $1 million charity tour, collaborated with Ralph Lauren: Denim & Supply and embarked on one of the biggest EDM arena tours to date already in 2012. Avicii now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the most in-demand and elite artists on the planet.

Avicii continues to deliver track after track of original and blissful music, and in 2011 he was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Sunshine” featuring David Guetta. In 2012, with the unique ‘House for Hunger’ tour, Avicii helped donate a staggering $1 million to ‘Feeding America’ through a not-for-profit 27-stop tour in the U.S.
