Prince's Estate Announces Minneapolis Big-Screen Concert Featuring Unreleased Material

Besides unreleased material, the concert, which will take place during a four-day event honoring the late singer, will feature Prince's longtime collaborators and 'very special guests.'

AceShowbiz - Prince may be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten in his hometown Minneapolis. Prince's Paisley Park Museum has announced that a concert event called "Prince: Live on the Big Screen" will be held at the Target Center in Minneapolis on April 21.

The concert, which will take place during a four-day event honoring the memory of the late musician, is set to feature video and audio of "remastered and never-before-released" material. Furthermore, Prince's longtime collaborators and "very special guests" will contribute to the concert, according to Prince's estate. The concert will also highlight "the incendiary energy he brought to each performance."

A rep for Paisley Park told Variety, "It's Prince on the screen and the musicians live in front of him on stage." The rep added that the concert would be similar to Elvis Presley-themed concerts, but holograms would not be involved.

Tickets for "Prince: Live on the Big Screen" will go on sale starting this Saturday, January 20 at 10 A.M. CT at the arena's website. Fans can also buy the tickets by calling 888-9-AXS-TIX.

Prior to this, Paisley Park sent an exhibit of Prince memorabilia to London's O2 Arena in October last year. Some of the items included guitars that the late singer used throughout his career as well as outfits from his "Purple Rain" and "LoveSexy" tours. There were also handwritten song lyrics and a pair of the "third eye" sunglasses that Prince wore.

"This is the first time we've taken any items out of Paisley Park," Prince's sister Tyka Nelson shared at the time. "I'm so excited to be able to meet the fans and share their Prince stories and give them hugs, and have a cry with them if need be."

Also in the same month, Paisley Park released a photo book titled "Prince: A Private View" featuring a foreword by Beyonce Knowles. "Truth be told, the word 'icon' only scratches the surface of what Prince was and what he remains to me," the songstress wrote. "I guess he knows people are starstruck because he's so amazing."
