Prince’s estate are staging a special memorial concert featuring unseen footage of the star to mark the second anniversary of his death.
The diminutive popstar passed away unexpectedly on April 21, 2016 at the age of 57, with coroners ruling he had died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl.
On Tuesday, Prince’s Paisley Park estate announced the “Purple Rain” hitmaker will grace the stage once more at the Prince: Live on the Big Screen gig, which takes place at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
“The concert will feature newly remastered and never-before-released audio and video of Prince accompanied live on the Target Center stage by a super-group of musicians who performed alongside Prince throughout his legendary career,” a post on the Paisley Park Facebook page reads. “The live experience will showcase Prince in his own inimitable sound and style, highlighting the incendiary energy he brought to each performance. With the event, Paisley Park looks to welcome even more of the passionate Prince fan community into a live music event celebrating his iconic artistry and the hit songs that captivated generations of fans.”
Tickets go on sale on Saturday at 10 a.m. through the arena’s box office, with the concert part of a four-day planned celebration “honoring the life and legacy of Prince Rogers Nelson”.
