Prince Remembered Throughout Minneapolis on Anniversary of His Death

For Prince’s fans, the one-year anniversary of his shocking death from an accidental drug overdose will be a time for sadness and celebration.

A year ago, on Friday, the music superstar was found dead in Paisley Park, the suburban Minneapolis complex where she lived.

At Paisley Park, which has become a museum, a total of four days of events are on tap, ranging from concerts of former bandmates from Prince to panel discussions. Fans who can not afford such high-priced tickets can head to a street party outside First Avenue, the club that made it famous in “Purple Rain.” And the Minnesota History Center is organizing a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including its iconic “Purple Rain” costume.

Prince’s base in the suburb of Chanhassen in Minneapolis is marking the anniversary with a list of shows by artists such as his former band The Revolution, Morris Day and The Time and New Power Generation. Also on the agenda: panel discussions with speakers such as their old bandmates – think Lisa (Coleman) and Wendy (Melvoin) of “Purple Rain” and The Revolution – along with many more.

Fans who could spend it spent $ 999 for VIP passes for Paisley time, and the farm said they were exhausted. A relatively cheaper option – $ 549 general admission passes – was still available mid-week.

Prince’s brothers, who are on their way to inherit a $ 200 million estate, are hosting an all-night dance party in the Minneapolis suburb of Golden Valley with De Dickerson, Apollonia Kotero, Andre Cymone, and others.

Downtown Minneapolis, where Prince filmed key parts of “Purple Rain,” hosts late-night dance parties on Friday and Saturday with the musician’s themes.

A commemorative street party outside the club is also on the tap for Saturday. It will be reminiscent of the one that drew thousands of mourners on the night of Prince’s death to cry, dance and sing along.

History Pieces

Prince’s “Purple Rain” suit, a purple jacket, white ruffled shirt and tacked trousers, was displayed at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul until Sunday. The museum is also commemorating the anniversary by presenting handwritten lyrics to an unpublished song, “I Hope We Work It Out,” signed by Prince in 1977. Prince played him for record executives when he first signed Warner Bros.
