Surprise news arrived late Thursday: A long-rumored/massive Prince tribute concert will go down Oct. 13 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, not at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis as previously thought.

City Pages just got confirmation from Xcel spokesperson Jora Bort -- this is for real!

Here's the lineup: Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day & the Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield, the New Power Generation featuring Morris Hayes plus members of 3RDEYEGIRL.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 19 via the Xcel box office and Ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices were not made immediately available. MORE

Anita Baker and the NPG!!! I'd go for just them alone! Anyone planning on going?

Maybe they will be adding names to the line-up. But just Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Bilal, Mint Condition, Anita Baker, Morris Day and The Time is quite a line-up. I have a feeling they will be adding The Revolution and maybe a few others.

They could add names until the list circled the globe 7 times, and I'd still wouldn't be hearing what I want to hear. I was under the impression this is supposed to be a memorial for the fans not a concert. If this is a concert taking place in MN, then these threads are basically a waste of time for me and those like me.

It was always billed as a Tribute Concert. They could have (and SHOULD have) done a memorial weeks ago. I'd say, this is it.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there might be a few surprises. Anyway one thing I think we can all agree on is Prince would hate negativity so I'm not going to complain about the line-up, venue, PR etc. I'm just going to try my best to get tickets on Monday. smile

Here we go.....still isn't good enough for some. Jesus Christ!!!

I would say that's a pretty good line up. Kinda wish Mary J or Alicia Keys could make it, as I loved seeing P sing with them. But hey, I am just thankful right now.

All of this is basically pointless to a huge percentage of Prince fans.

Exactly. It's about remembering and celebrating Prince. That's all that should matter.

Exactly! We have all been on pins and needles waiting for SOMETHING and we finally got it. I'm holding out hope they can televise it for those of us that can't make it or don't get tickets but I think we should stop with all the bitching and complaining and try to move forward. If someone can't do that they need to move off the thread in my opinion. I absolutely refuse to engage one on one with the negativity. Not doing it. Can't wait for everyone to be able to make this celebration of this amazing man's life!!!! (And I'm not going by the way, I'm just super happy for everyone that is!) 💜💜💜

I can't be there either, but I'm happy for those who can. This will be an historic event. Prince deserves it.

Aren't Michael and Sonny part of NPG? Press release doesn't mention who all from NPG will be there other than Morris Hayes as band leader. Oh and Liv Warfield was specifically called out.

True. And I see that Liv Warfield is named, but no mention of Shelby J. Surely, she will be there. I think I saw her mention it on her FB some time ago. John Blackwell will be missed. I sure wish they could donate a portion of the proceeds for his treatment and recovery.

Yeah if Shelby isn't there than something is seriously f'd up. To me there were essentially 3 incarnations of NPG - the original lineup in the early 90s, the Musicology band and the Welcome 2 band. I'm hoping we get representation from all three.
