Minneapolis To Host Prince Tribute Concert In October
This fall, Minneapolis, Minn., will host a Prince tribute concert to celebrate the life, legacy and timeless music of a legend who lost his life to a drug overdose three months ago.
The Purple One’s brothers and sisters made a joint statement to the Associated Press this morning, and confirmed that the concert will take place October 13, 2016, at the U.S. Bank Stadium. Tickets will go on sale in August and the performers will be announced on a rolling basis.
“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 from Prince’s family reads. “We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible.”
