Eric Prydz fulfills cancer patient’s request to see him perform


Eric Prydz is already known for going above and beyond for his fans. In turn, validating the exponential appreciation and love they have for him. Having been on a run of form and momentum for the back end of 2016, not much more could please his fans. Or that’s what one would’ve thought until this story.

Going above and beyond, Eric Prydz is flying one of his adoring fans, who has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, to Los Angeles to host a private event for him. Here’s wondering how many other artist’s in the scene would do such a thing…

Surfacing on Reddit, the fans featured the story on his profile, YardleyYeti. The heart-warming story of wanting to see the Swedish talent live and in the flesh 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.”

Responding promptly to the request on Prydz’s sub-reddit, his team reached out after a quick consultation with Eric himself. And within 24 hours all was set for a highlight of a lifetime. Organizing the fan an exclusive show in Los Angeles, additional details are expected to come in the near future.

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.” Theyre 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.
