Eric Prydz announces charity show in honor of James Lillo
Eric Prydz has announced a new benefit show in honor of James Lillo, a dedicated fan who passed away earlier this week from cancer.
Upon learning of Lillo’s situation prior to this week, Prydz had arranged to fly James out for a personal show in Los Angeles, set to take place in mid-December. With the tragic news of Lillo’s passing, however, Prydz has vowed to turn the show into a fundraiser, with all proceeds from the event going to James’ chosen charity, Cancer Research Institute.
“His battle and story have affected me deeply,” Prydz says. “Now more than ever I wish to play this event to raise money for his charity and honor his memory.”
The show will take place at Sound Nightclub on December 17 in Hollywood. Tickets are available here.
Eric Prydz shared the following message with the announcement:
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.
