Swedish House Mafia perform final show
07:42 CET+01:00
Swedish house DJ trio Swedish House Mafia played their final ever show together to a sell-out crowd of 55,000 in Miami on Sunday night.

Swedish House Mafia, which consists of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, took to the stage at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami to deliver what was to be their last ever performance together.

Over 55,000 people turned up to see the sold-out show, with the Swedes playing the headline act on the last day of the two-weekend festival.

The trio, which was officially formed in late 2008, has achieved enormous success the world over both on the charts and on tour.

Their first official single, "One (Your Name)" released in May 2010 peaked at number 7 in the UK Singles Chart. The group's second single "Miami 2 Ibiza" reached number 4.

The massive success of a third single, "Save the World", further established the trio's burgeoning reputation and a December 2011 date at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden was sold out in nine minutes.

And while the group claims that Miami was indeed the scene for the last ever appearance of the Swedish House Mafia, the talents of the Stockholm trio could resurface in another form in the future.

"We might have a group called something else," Angello hinted in an interview with the Rolling Stone magazine.

New Malmö museum will focus on ‘democracy and migration'
