Stevie Wonder to headline official Prince tribute concert
Stevie Wonder and members of Prince’s inner circle will highlight a family-sanctioned Prince tribute concert in St Paul, Minnesota on October 13.
Prince’s family originally planned to hold the show at the new NFL stadium in his hometown of Minneapolis. But the organisers announced on Saturday that it will be at the smaller, 20,000 capacity Xcel Energy Center in St Paul.
Tickets will go on sale on Monday, with some will cost $19.99 in tribute to Prince’s hit song.
The lineup also includes Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E Fresh, Luke James, Bilal and Mint Condition. Prince’s inner circle will be represented by Morris Day and the Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield. The New Power Generation, led by Morris Hayes, as well as members of 3rdEyeGirl, also will perform, according to a news agency. -bz
