Prince's Paisley Park Announces Celebration 2017 With The Revolution, The Time, NPG, 3RDEYEGIRL and More

by VVN Music

Some have questioned how fast the executors of Prince's estate have managed to get the Paisley Park complex up and running as a museum, feeling it was a bit disrespectful to the late singer this soon after his death, but the company running the site keeps forging forward with new special events.

On Monday, they announced Celebration 2017, which will honor Prince on the first anniversary of his passing from April 20 to 23. The event will include 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 talent, influence and importance as a composer, musician, producer, live performer and filmmaker.

The bands scheduled to appear during the festivities are a who's who of Prince's career including his original band The Revolution, proteges Morris Day and the Time, the New Power Generation and his final group 3RDEYEGIRL.

A full program along with additional special guests will be announced in the near future.

Celebration 2017 will reflect the spirit of the inaugural Prince: A Celebration event, hosted by Prince and held at Paisley Park between June 7-13, 2000. This event welcomed fans from around the world into an immersive Prince experience that showcased Paisley Park, many of Prince’s rarely seen stage wardrobe and instruments, alongside special events and exclusive music performances. In subsequent years, Prince hosted similar immersive fan experiences, first in 2001 with Prince: A Celebration “The Rainbow Children”and in 2002 with Xenophobia. Celebration 2017 will carry on in this spirit of community and connection, welcoming Prince fans from everywhere into a truly unique and celebratory experience that will highlight the life, unique achievements and enduring legacy of Prince Rogers Nelson.
