Eric Prydz is a producer who has garnered plenty of respect for his artistic merit. From his prolific output under not only his own name but alternate projects like Pryda and Cirez D, to his mind blowing stage productions, the Swedish DJ is revered as a legend for good reason. His latest move, however, has us respecting him as a human.
In a truly humble gesture, Eric Prydz is offering one fan the chance of a lifetime. A terminally ill man by the username of YardleyYeti took the sub-reddit devoted to the DJ and producer to share his story of being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and wanting nothing more than to see Prydz live one last time.
After his team became aware of the situation, they responded quickly to ensure YardleyYeti’s wish would come true. Eric Prydz will play a show in LA in January in the fan’s honor, with all proceeds from the event being donated to a charity of his choosing. Details about the performance haven’t been released at this point, but are expected to arrive soon.
You can read YardleyYeti’s response to the incredible offer 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.” 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.
