Prince fans to mark an­niver­sary of mu­sic su­per­star’s death

The Philippine Star - - WORLD NEWS -

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.
