Both LIVE NATION and AEG are planning tribute concerts to honor the late PRINCE, according to THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
LIVE NATION is planning a concert in the fallen superstar’s hometown of MINNEAPOLIS and are trying to convince his whole family to participate. However, they have not officially announced any details regarding the event and it may be moved to a larger venue in a different city.
LIVE NATION's bill would likely feature several artists connected to PRINCE, according to the WSJ's sourceS. Those artists could include backup band 3RD EYE GIRL, CAMEROONIAN pop-rocker ANDY ALLO, R&B singer LIV WARFIELD and funk-soul artist JUDITH HILL who co-produced her 2015 album “Back in Time” with PRINCE.
AEG LIVE is producing two tribute shows in LONDON set for JUNE 24th and 25th, featuring performances by MORRIS DAY AND THE TIME as a benefit for AUTISM ROCKS, a charity that PRINCE performed for several times in recent years.
According to the WSJ, AEG is producing the shows for a flat fee on behalf of DUBAI promoter 117 LIVE, a division of AL AHLI HOLDING GROUP, which helped to organize the previous autism benefits
