Swedish progressive house sensation, Eric Prydz recently touched our hearts after he announced a special gig for a fan suffering from cancer.
Earlier this week, this fan named ‘YardleyYeti’ posted on Reddit explaining how he suffered from Stage 4 cancer and was concerned that he wouldn’t be able to make it to Prydz’s EPIC 5.0, which is set to kick start May 2017.
This is what ‘YardleyYeti’ posted on Reddit, about of wanting to see the Swedish legend live one last time.
“I know how exclusive he is and he is by far (like I’m sure for most of you) my favorite producer in the world…I have tickets to EPIC 5.0 (never been to one before!) but am not positive I’ll make it that far and would love to just see him one more time.”
Once this came to the notice of Eric’s team, they consulted Eric himself and within a day’s span, they decided to organize an exclusive show in Los Angeles! Details of the show will be out soon.
Read YardleyYeti’s full Reddit post below:
“I don’t honestly know how to put the following into words. It’s unbelievable.
So I got an email today from Eric’s manager asking for my number and got a call today. As you all know Eric isn’t much of a flyer so it would be hard for him to get him onto the east coast soon. So they offered me to see him in LA January 1st! Already crazy.
Not even 30 minutes later he calls back and tells me “So I talked to Eric and the rest of the team and we want to throw you your own personal LA show. ALL tickets sold will go to the charity of your choosing.” They’re flying me out. Getting me a hotel room. And it looks like we’re going to have another LA show before Christmas that the team will be posting about shortly. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. THE LOVE FELT TODAY WAS OUTSTANDING. THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD.”
This amazing gesture by Prydz has definitely touched our hearts! Kudos Eric. 🙂
