2016 has been a bad year for losses, as several legends in the music and entertainment sphere have sadly passed on. Prince was of course one of these, and now it has been announced that there will be a celebration of his life at his Paisley Park home.
Celebration 2017 will take place on the anniversary of his death, on 20-23 April, at his home in Minnesota which will eventually be a museum open to the public. At the remembrance event, Prinve’s former bands The Revolution and 3RDEYEGIRL will be playing live, with more artists to be confirmed later.
As you might expect, tickets for this are going to be eye wateringly expensive, as tickets for Celebration 2017 will start at $499 (£402). For the VIP pass, brace your wallet as they will cost $999. Despite the hefty cost that beats that of most four day festivals, the celebration of Prince’s life will undoubtedly attract a huge amount of people wishing to celebrate the singer’s many achievements.
According to organisers, the event will be about”bringing together musicians, creative personnel, special guests and friends who worked closest with Prince and knew him best. These four days will feature live music, panel discussions and presentations on Prince’s tremendous talent, influence and importance as a composer, musician, producer, live performer and filmmaker.”
Tickets are already available for Celebration 2017, despite it not taking place until April. Check out the event here.
