ERIC PRYDZ TO HOLD CHARITY GIG IN HONOUR OF FAN WHO PASSED AWAY
"His battle and story have affected me deeply"...
Eric Prydz has shared details of a forthcoming charity show held in honour of one of his fans, James Lillo, who passed away earlier this week after a battle with cancer.
The Swedish star originally set up the gig after Lillo shared told Reddit he had been diagnosed with stage four cancer and was worried he wouldn't make it to Prydz's next EPIC 5.0 event.
Prydz's team were quick to react, however, Lillo tragically died before the show. Now, with the blessing of Lillo's family, Prydz will go ahead with the performance and donate all proceeds to the Cancer Research Institute as per Lillo's request.
"His battle and story have affected me deeply, now more than ever I wish to play this event to raise money for his charity and honor his memory," said Prydz.
The fundraiser will be held at Sound Nightclub in LA on Saturday 17th December. Tickets are available here, and for those who can't attend, Prydz has also set up a donation page.
