Official Prince Tribute Concert Lineup Revealed
After much waiting, the lineup for the 10/13 official Prince tribute concert in Minneapolis has been announced. The main players are Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, and Chaka Khan. The night will also feature Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, and Mint Condition, plus directly affiliated musicians Morris Day And The Time, Judith Hill, Liv Warfield, the New Power Generation led by Morris Hayes, and members of 3RDEYEGIRL. The tribute was initially supposed to take place at Minneapolis’ brand new U.S. Bank Stadium, but is instead at the much smaller Xcel Energy Center in fellow “twin city” St. Paul. Event organizer L. Londell McMillan told Minneapolis’ Star Tribune the venue change and delayed announcement were due to a variety of factors: venue and artist availability, cost, and sound/production quality. Prince diehards vented their frustrations to both the Associated Press and the Star Tribune in waiting for the event to be announced, already having purchased their flights, hotels, and more after the tribute’s date was set. Proceeds from the night will go to Prince’s estate. Watch a teaser for the night below.
