A few days ago a fan left a heartfelt message on reddit for Eric Prydz to read, after it made its way to the Swedish Producer. YardleyYeti (Eric’s fan reddit username) recently posted about his stage 4 cancer diagnosis, wishing to see Eric Prydz perform one last time, in fear of not making it to see EPIC 5.0!
“I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in January and have been lucky enough to make it this far.
Just posting here to see if anyone has any contacts with Eric that could make a US east coast date a possibility. I know how exclusive he is and he is by far (like Im 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.”
Once this reached Eric Prydz and his team, they decided that flying “YardleyYeti” with an all paid expenses trip was’t enough, they have decided to throw a show especially for this special fan, Eric management said that all of the profit would go to Yardley’s charity of choice.
“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.”
We are so happy to see good being done, and we will keep updating you on this event and story as more information comes out.
