The life and work of pop icon Prince will be celebrated over a four-day festival at his Paisley Park Studios compound in Minnesota on the first anniversary of his death. "Celebration 2017" will take place from April 20 thru the 23, with tickets starting at $499. The event will include artists such as Prince's band, The Revolution, Morris Day, and another Prince band, 3RDEYEGIRL. More artists will be announced at later dates. Prince, known for songs including "Purple Rain" and "When Doves Cry," died on April 21 of an accidental overdose of a powerful painkiller at his Paisley Park estate. He was 57. Organizers said the event will "reflect the spirit" of the singer's inaugural "Prince: A Celebration" June 2000 concert, which featured performances and events over four days. In October, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan were among the names who topped the bill for an all-star concert tribute in memory of Prince at an arena in St. Paul, Minnesota, about 30 miles west of Paisley Park.
