Paisley Park released its official details about their annual Celebration appropriately entitled Celebration 2019 at its home base in Chanhassen, MN that will take place from April 25-28, 2019.
Along with the announcement that the event was officially selling tickets, they also divulged a bit of the special guests, performers, and a hint at the festivities.
The performing acts were also announced and include the original lineup of Prince‘s band The Revolution (Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Brownmark, Bobby Z and Matt “Doctor” Fink), solo artist/producer/ex-The Time guitarist Jesse Johnson, and an all-star band called Funk Soldiers consisting of
fifteen piece super-group of New Power Generation and Paisley Park musical alumni. Each act will have a full performance on one of the nights during the Celebration.
Tickets start at $549 for a general admission to the event which gains you 4 days of Prince-themed entertainment including music from many of the artists that he’s worked with during his career, as well as thorough Q&A sessions with many special guests.
General admission also includes a ticket to a special event called Prince: In Concert On The Big Screen at The Armory which is a full live band experience that is accompanied by video of the man himself perfectly synchronized and meticulously detailed that created an experience that is about as close as you’ll get to seeing him perform again.
Tickets go up from there to a VIP experience that comes in at $1049 which adds special VIP experiences to the event already packed festivities. Although it had not been announced on the site, the host hotel was confirmed that would be yet again the Hilton Bloomington near the Minneapolis airport as it had been previous years.
For those that have not yet been to the Celebration events, we can tell you that these experiences are truly for the obsessive Prince fans and the entire town of Minneapolis and surrounding areas are always filled with external shows in clubs and venues around town that are packed to the gills with Prince related acts and family.
This is by far THE best Prince event that currently exists out there that fully delivers on feeding that purple beast. Head to the website at www.OfficialPaisleyPark.com and pick up tickets now before they sell out. Full information and details can be found here.
