Sheila E., Beck, Foo Fighters, Mavis Staples & More To Perform Grammy Salute To Prince
Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince all-star concert will be held on January 28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Prince collaborator, percussionist Sheila E., alongside fellow cohorts Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, will serve as musical director for the tribute featuring Beck, Foo Fighters, Mavis Staples, Earth Wind and Fire and others.
Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince will be broadcast in April. Additional participants include Gary Clark, Jr., Alicia Keys, St. Vincent, John Legend, Usher, Common, H.E.R. and Juanes. Other Prince collaborators appearing at the concert include his backing band The Revolution, The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs and Morris Day & The Time.
“I was very honored to be able to do this for so many reasons, but to be able to help celebrate the life of a dear friend and be a part of this and be musical director is awesome,” Shiela E. told Rolling Stone. “Musically, there’s so much to choose from. It’s almost unfair to do a two-hour tribute to him — we could do a full week. At the end of the day, it’s him bringing people together and having a good time.”
Tickets to Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince are available now via AXS.
