The Prince tribute concert promised by his family in the weeks after his death in April has finally been set

An official “musical celebration” of the Purple One has been scheduled for Oct. 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Performers have yet to be 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.”

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

Earlier this month, his former band the Revolution announced they would reunite for two shows, Sept 2 and 3, at Minneapolis’ First Avenue club where the group played with Prince in the 1980s.
