When James Lillo reached out to Eric Prydz, he had Stage 4 terminal cancer. All he wanted was to see his favorite DJ perform one last time, and the request moved Prydz beyond words. He agreed to fly Lillo out to Los Angeles and to donate ticket sales to the Cancer Research Institute, a non-profit organization of Lillo's choosing.

Sadly, Lillo passed away earlier this week, but now more than ever, Prydz knows this show must go on. In fact, he's upped the ante, and will now perform two fund-raising concerts in Lillo's name.

Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17 and 18, Prydz will play Sound Nightclub, and 100 percent of ticket sales will be donated to the Cancer Research Institute.

“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,” Prydz says in a personal message. “Please dig deep and let’s raise as much money as possible, and PLEASE let’s try and make a difference in James memory.”

The Saturday show is sold out, but tickets are still available for the Sunday performance. If fans can not attend but would like to give to the cause, they can do so online in Lillo's name.
