Eric Prydz is proving himself to be a superstar DJ in more ways than one, with the announcement that he will play a special gig for a terminally ill fan.
Earlier this week, Reddit user YardleyYeti posted explaining how he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and was worried he wouldn't make it to the Prydz's EPIC 5.0 show in LA in the New Year.
The internet instantly rallied to the call and word got through to Prydz team, who quickly organised a pre-christmas show especially for the fan. Tickets will be on sale for the show, but proceeds will be donated to a charity of YardleyYeti's choice.
Read the fan's full statement on the gig 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."
