The gig will take place in Minneapolis later this year
Prince‘s family have announced an official tribute concert to celebrate the singer and multi-instrumentalist’s life and career.
Though the performers are yet to be announced, the event will take place at Minneapolis’ US Bank Stadium on October 13th, with tickets on sale next month, according to Associated Press.
“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,” said Prince’s family in a statement. “We are honoured by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible.”
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the Prince Online Museum launched, comprising 12 of Prince’s websites. It begins with an early CD-ROM version called Prince Interactive in 1994, and stretches up to 3rdEyeGirl.com – his final website.
“We launch with 12 of Prince’s most popular sites, but over 20 years online, Prince launched nearly 20 different websites, maintained a dozen different social media presences, participated in countless online chats and directly connected with fans around the world,” Sam Jennings, director of the museum, told Billboard.
