It was James Lillo’s wish to see DJ Eric Prydz perform one more time. Lillo was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Prydz got ahold of Lillo and agreed to throw a show for the fan. Sadly, James Lillo passed away before the show’s date.
Eric Prydz decided that the show will go on and be turned into a fundraiser where the proceeds will go to the Cancer Research Insititue. Prydz commented: “His battle and story have affected me deeply,” Prydz said. “Now more than ever I wish to play this event to raise money for his charity and honor his memory.”
Prydz played two sold-out nights and managed to raise over $60,000 for the Cancer Research Institute. The Swedish DJ played four new unreleased tracks in a tribute to Lillo, which the fans have named after him, such as “Lillo ID.1” and “Lillo ID.2.”
Ecstatic about the news, Prydz shared the news on Twitter, writing:
“Thanks to all who bought tickets & donated for James. We raised $60K+ for Cancer Research Institute. I think we have all made a difference.”
