Paisley Park Celebration 2017 will remember Prince on anniversary of death
BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene
Those who missed the Prince tribute concert in Minneapolis in October will have another chance to celebrate his legacy.
On April 21-23, Prince’s estate
will host a four-day festival called Celebration 2017, set to present performances from many musicians who worked with Prince, including Morris Day and the Time, the reunited Revolution and New Power Generation.
A general admission pass is $499 and includes up to five hours of event programming each day for all four days, as well as access to concert events, panel discussions and guided tours.
And in case you think that this will be your chance to get behind-the-scenes footage of Paisley Park – not so much. The rundown of information about the event stipulates that video and photos are strictly prohibited. Phones and/or cameras will be “secured” prior to the tour and will not be available for use. Those caught taking photos or videos at Paisley Park will be banned permanently from the property.
Prince’s estate also announced that the next release from the late singer’s vaults will be a reissue of “Purple Rain,” including a disc of unreleased material.
