They begin in October

Prince’s Paisley Park estate is to open to the public from October.

The property served as both a production studio and creative hub from 1985 to his death in April this year.

“Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his lifetime,” said a statement from his family. “Now, fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince’s world for the first time as we open the doors to this incredible place.”

Tours of the site, located in Minnesota, will take in the main floor that houses the recording and mixing studios, along with tours of his video editing suite, rehearsal rooms, private NPG Music Club and personal concert hall.

Visitors will also be able to see thousands of personal artefacts from Prince’s archives for the first time, including concert wardrobe, awards, instruments, artwork, rare recordings and more.
