THE REVOLUTION REUNITES FOR TWO SHOWS AT FIRST AVENUE IN MINNEAPOLIS
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 AND SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2016
With profound loss and apocalyptic grief, we, along with the world, mourned Prince upon the news of his passing. After seeing the response outside of First Avenue and around the rest of the world’s monuments, we, as The Revolution – Wendy, Lisa, Brownmark, Dr. Fink, and Bobby Z -‐ have decided to pay tribute to Prince at home in the city of Minneapolis. -- The Revolution
Following recent speculation about The Revolution reuniting, the band has announced two shows in the First Avenue Mainroom on Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3. Joined by Dez Dickerson and André Cymone, the line-‐up consists of key players and collaborators from Prince’s most formative years, through the global phenomenon of Purple Rain and beyond.
“When we first spoke to The Revolution, and the conversation turned to a possible reunion, it only seemed natural to bring them to First Avenue -‐ to bring them home,” says First Avenue’s General Manager, Nate Kranz.
Tickets for both nights of “An Evening with The Revolution” featuring Wendy, Lisa, Brownmark, Dr. Fink, and Bo by Z, with special guests Dez Dickerson and André Cymone, go on sale this Friday, July 8, 2016 at 11:00am CST. General admission tickets are $65.00, and VIP tickets are available for $99.00. VIP allows early access to the venue for a reception with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. VIP includes a limited edition commemorative laminate for the event.
"Only by playing for you, the fans, can we be Prince’s Revolution. He gives Us 2 oneanother now, as we all start to heal and fill forever emptiness with sound. 2gether, we are The Revolution.” -‐ The Revolution
