Can you believe that we are almost at the end of the year, and about to go into 2017? Nope, we can’t believe it either. With 2016 being a rough year musically with the loss of one of the legendary musical greats, Prince Roger Nelson, we kind of are looking towards the new year for a fresh start.
Speaking of the Purple One, apparently we aren’t the only ones who have our eyes set forth for 2017. Prince’s estate, in conjunction with Paisley Park, will ‘party like it’s 1999’ with Celebration 2017, a four-day festival at his former residence. Fans are invited to take part in the event which takes place from April 20th-23rd at Paisley Park. The event will tap into the talent of a few of Prince’s contemporaries, as well as artists whose careers he help launch including The Revolution, Morris Day and The Time, New Power Generation, Liv Warfield, Shelby J. and 3RDEYEGIRL to perform. Other acts will be added to the lineup as well.
‘CELEBRATION 2017 will honor and celebrate the life and legacy of Prince, as the world marks the first anniversary of his passing. 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.‘
We hope that you brought your wallet and credit cards with you, because tickets START at $500, but it’s for a multi-day pass. If you’re interested in going, grab your passes at the Celebration website.
