A concert featuring the music of the late star Avicii will be held Dec. 5 in Stockholm, Sweden, with proceeds to go toward suicide prevention.

The benefit will support the work of the new Tim Bergling Foundation — that was the real name of the Swedish musician who killed himself in April 2018.

His songs “Wake Me Up!,” ″Addicted to You” and the posthumous “SOS” topped dance music charts.

The concert will feature many of the singers — including Adam Lambert and Rita Ora — who were on Avicii’s recordings. It will be the first time many of the songs have been performed live.

David Guetta and Kygo are among the electronic dance music stars who will perform opening sets.
