Swedish House Mafia signs pop up in Liverpool prompting UK gig rumours

Are the global dance trio returning to UK?

Last month at a press conference in Stockholm Swedish House Mafia announced that they would be reuniting.

Telling the world that they would reunite for a homecoming show at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso announced that they would be premiering brand new, never-before-heard music at the Sweden show, which will be their first concert together on home turf in over six years.

With no word on whether there would be any UK shows in the pipeline, fans of the group now have a reason to get excited.

As of yesterday Billboard signs, showing three dots which refer to announcements on Swedish House Mafia’s social media accounts, have started popping up around the UK.

The first was seen yesterday in Glasgow’s St. Enoch Square.

A couple more popped up in Liverpool today.

Similar signs recently appeared in Mexico City, before the global dance superstars announced that they were going to play their upcoming Latin American gig.

It was in 2012 that Swedish House Mafia, who at the time were one of the biggest electronic touring acts on the circuit, announced that they would be disbanding despite them being at their peak. On their final farewell tour, they performed across the globe, immediately becoming the world’s fastest and best selling electronic artists of all-time.

Paying their respect to their hometown, selling out three shows at Friends Arena Stockholm and playing to 133,000 fans, making it the first and last performances in their home country, they closed out their UK account with a sold out farewell show at the Milton Keynes Bowl.
