Multiple sources say Swedish House Mafia is reuniting in 2017; manager denies it
According to Billboard, multiple sources close to Swedish House Mafia say the legendary trio is reuniting in 2017. The group’s longtime manager, Amy Thompson, however, is actively refuting these rumors: “there’s no reunion of Swedish House Mafia planned at all,” Thomson told Billboard. “Even if there was, it’s ridiculously private. They’re not playing at Ultra. There’s no reunion tour planned.”
Yet still, sources maintain that the trio is likely to make an appearance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, as well as perform in Los Angeles and New York.
This marks the third time this year that rumors have emerged claiming the Swedish triumvirate is set to officially reunite next year — and the third time that the group has denied the rumors. Back in July, YouTube curator Proximity shared supposed insider knowledge about a 2017 reunion before Axwell Ingrosso subsequently refuted it. Later, in October, a deleted Axwell tweet once again stirred suspicion about a reunion before later being denied.
As one of the foremost dance acts of the last two decades, it makes sense than fans are clamoring for the trio’s return. Only time will tell if these rumors actually prove true.
