Prince's Family Announces Official Tribute Show to Honor the Late Music Icon
Mark your calendars, Prince fans! The late singer's family released a statement on Thursday with the news that an official tribute concert will take place Oct. 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in his hometown of Minneapolis. The family added that performers would be announced on a rolling basis and that tickets would go on sale in August.
"We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince's life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis," the statement to the Associated Press read. "We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible."
The seven-time Grammy Award winner died on April 21 at the age of 57. Beloved for hits like "When Doves Cry," and "Purple Rain," the seven-time Grammy Award winner, since his death, has been memorialized by fans and celebrities with tributes, including high-profile salutes at the BET Awards and the Billboard Music Awards earlier this year.
We can't wait to find out who will perform at the upcoming show!
