After Fan Loses Battle to Cancer, Eric Prydz DJs to Make a Difference

James Lillo was so touched by Eric Pyrdz's music that when faced with terminal cancer, one of his final wishes was to see the Swedish artist live.

After a letter reached Prydz last week, a show was immediately planned to raise money for James' chosen charity Cancer Research Institute. But before Prydz and his team were able to fly James out to Los Angeles for his own personal show, James sadly lost his battle with cancer.

Moved by James' battle with cancer and story, Prydz is even more determined to honor James. The Swedish producer not only pledged to make the event special in James' memory but announced the addition of a second night with proceeds again going to the Cancer Research Institute.

Prydz will be playing the two fundraisers for James Lillo on December 17th and 18th at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles.

"Many of you are aware that an amazing guy called James Lillo who was suffering from stage four terminal cancer approached me last week. After speaking with James we decided to fly him out to LA, to throw his own personal show, which I would DJ to raise money for his chosen charity - Cancer Research Institute. Tragically James passed away this week. His battle and story have affected me deeply, and now more than ever I wish to play this event to raise money for his charity and honor his memory. Having now had the blessing from his family, the show will be at Sound Nightclub on the 17th December. Every $ raised from ticket sales goes to Cancer Research Institute.

If you are unable to attend the show, but would still like to donate directly to James’ chosen charity please click here.

Please dig deep and let’s raise as much money as possible, and PLEASE let’s try and make a difference in James memory.

-Eric Prydz
