Official Prince Tribute Concert Planned


(CelebrityAccess)–After Prince's death his family promised that he would be memorialized with a "musical celebration." Now, they have announced an official tribute concert will take place on Oct. 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The performers have not been announced yet but tickets will go on sale next month, the Associated Press reports.

"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," his family told the AP in a statement. "We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible."

Though many stars and collaborators have paid tribute to Prince since his death, this will be the first official celebratory concert. His former band the Revolution also announced this month that they would reunite at Minneapolis' First Avenue club where the group played with the Purple One in the 1980s.

Prince died on April 21 of an opioid overdose at his home in Paisley Park, Minnesota. He was 57. -Staff Writers/AP
