John Mayer, Stevie Wonder & More To Honor Prince At St. Paul Concert


An all-star lineup of performers will come together next month to honor Prince near the late artist’s hometown. The Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul will host Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Chaka Khan, Christina Aguilera, Tori Kelly and others for a tribute to The Purple One on October 13.

Also slated to appear are Bilal, Doug E. Fresh, Anita Baker, Luke James and Mint Condition as well as Prince collaborators Morris Day & The Time, Judith Hill, Liv Warfield, The New Power Generation and members of 3rdEyeGirl. Tickets to the tribute concert will go on sale this Monday, September 19 at 10 a.m. CT.

Originally announced months ago by Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson, the concert was originally supposed to be held at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The tribute concert was planned following the unexpected death of Prince earlier this year at the age of 57. In addition to the concert, Prince’s estate plans to open his Paisley Park facility in Chanhassen, Minnesota for tours beginning on October 6.
