Amy Thomson Reveals She’s Stepping Down As Swedish House Mafia’s Manager

Swedish House Mafia‘s triumphant return to Ultra Music Festival in March earlier this year, after a span of 5 years, sparked a number of rumours about an impending tour from EDM’s most successful trio. With both Axwell and Steve Angello hinting at headlining performances at music festivals, as well as a tour in 2019, it’s all but confirmed that we will see the Swedes returning to touring post their split in 2013.

However, things might be different on their upcoming tour this time around, as Amy Thomson has revealed she’ll be stepping down as the supergroup’s manager after 14 long years. Thomson, who has been instrumental in the group’s success as one of the biggest acts dance music has ever seen, took to her social media to make the announcement.

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x

Amy has also confirmed reports about Swedish House Mafia hitting the studio, which was widely reported following Steve Angello’s interview with a Swedish newspaper. The move could also see them work and release the two IDs that were premiered by the trio at Ultra Miami earlier this year.

It’ll be interesting to see who succeeds Amy Thomson as Swedish House Mafia’s manager, as these will certainly be big shoes to fill, and how the move impacts any future decisions for the group.
