orchestral Prince tribute tour, curated by Questlove, announced


Questlove helped curate a new orchestral Prince tribute tour, dubbed “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince,” that will take place this September and October. Prince’s estate is involved too. The music will be performed by the Wolf Trap Orchestra, a live band, and several vocalists, and Questlove helped pick the songs and worked on the orchestral arrangements, according to Rolling Stone. Prince’s estate provided videos and photos to be used at the shows.

The tour begins at New Brunswick, NJ’s State Theatre on September 6 and also hits Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre on September 20 and many other cities. Tickets for the whole tour are on sale now. All dates are listed below, and more 2018 and 2019 dates are TBA.

Prince’s estate also recently announced a new album of previously unreleased Prince music from the late legend’s Vault. The album will first be available as a Tidal exclusive for two weeks (as a stream and download), and then Prince’s estate will give the album a worldwide physical release. “Our only goal is to share Prince’s music with his fans as he wanted,” said Jay-Z on behalf of Tidal. The album is due in 2019.

In other Questlove news, the Roots Picnic is coming up in a few weeks (June 2).
