Prince fans to mark anniversary of music superstar’s death
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For Prince fans, the one-year anniversary of his shocking death from an accidental drug overdose will be a time for sadness and celebration.
It was a year ago yesterday that the music superstar was found dead at Paisley Park, the suburban Minneapolis recording complex where he lived.
At Paisley Park, which has been turned into a museum, a full four days of events are on tap, ranging from concert performances by Prince’s former bandmates to panel discussions.
Fans who can’t afford those high-priced tickets can head to a street party outside First Avenue, the club he made world famous in “Purple Rain.”
And the Minnesota History Center is staging a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including his iconic “Purple Rain” suit.
