In April, Prince's "video likeness" will take the stage with a live band at the Target Center in Minneapolis. Prince: Live on the Big Screen will feature remastered and unreleased video and audio, Prince's estate told Rolling Stone Tuesday. The show—which will be supplemented with a live band—takes place April 21 as part of a four-day memorial event for the late legend.
The concert will include appearances by "very special guests" and a "super group of musicians" who performed alongside Prince during his nearly four-decade career, though specific details have not yet been announced. Ticket sales kick off Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. local time at the physical Target Center box office and online.
Following the Purple One's death in 2016, the estate has taken great strides to assure the growth of his legacy as both an icon of pop culture and an artistic innovator. His famed Paisley Park studio is now open to the public and includes artifacts form his personal archives, including select pieces from his collection of instruments and rare artwork.
Sign O' The Times, Prince's 1987 concert film, finally aired on Showtime last September after years of being practically impossible to find here in the States. The Prince-directed movie is still available via Showtime's on-demand services and has been widely praised by fans and critics alike for its ability to capture an artist at what was arguably his creative peak.
Rest in power to the Purple One.
