Holiday season has fully arrived and with it comes a shared feeling of generosity and good wills. But Eric Prydz seems to have us all beat with his latest act, done all for a loving fan.
A dedicated Prydz lover shared his personal story with the online community of Reddit, explaining that he'd recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer but still wished to see the Swedish producer live at his upcoming EPIC 5.0 show. Sadly, the fan explained that due to his condition, he wasn't sure he'd be able to make it that far and wished he could see Prydz play one more time.
The internet responded quickly and brought deserved attention to the story, and within a day, Prydz's management caught wind of the fan's request, reached out and offered to fly the fan out to Los Angeles from the East Coast to put on an exclusive show specifically for him. Prydz's management team explained that tickets will be sold to the impromptu show, but all proceeds will go to a charity of the fan's choosing.
Read the fan's story 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! [sic] 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.' They're 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."
Details about the show have yet to be unveiled, but expect information coming soon.
Cheers to the holiday spirit, Eric.
