Prince to be honored by an all-star lineup
Stevie Wonder and members of Prince’s inner circle will highlight a family-sanctioned Prince tribute concert Oct. 13 in St. Paul, Minn., organizers announced Thursday.
Prince’s family originally planned to hold the show at U.S. Bank Stadium, the new NFL stadium in his hometown of Minneapolis. However, organizers said that it will be at the smaller Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday via Ticketmaster and the arena’s box office; some tickets will cost $19.99 in tribute to one of Prince’s hits.
The lineup also includes Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal and Mint Condition. Prince’s inner circle will be represented by Morris Day & The Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield. The New Power Generation led by Morris Hayes, along with members of 3RDEYEGIRL, also will perform.
“It’s an all-star mix of classic and new artists, Prince-inspired as well as Prince family-type artists,” said organizer L. Londell McMillan, a longtime attorney for the late superstar who is helping manage his estate’s entertainment assets.
