A CELEBRATION OF THE ARTIST, THE GENIUS, THE MUSIC: NOTHING COMPARES 2 PRINCE

Check out the info on Nothing Compares 2 Prince:

"THE WORLD PREMIERE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST EVER GATHERINGS OF PRINCE’S COLLABORATORS LIVE ON STAGE!

From Prince and The Revolution, The Time, The Family, Purple Rain, and NPG (the New Power Generation) to the Revolution once more, these are the musicians, singers, producers and composers who were at Prince’s right hand throughout his incredible, trail-blazing journey – all co-conspirators in the creation of the music that changed the world, blending funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop into something much bigger than the sum of its parts.

A hugely ambitious project, the concert features over 13 extraordinary musicians and singers from around the world performing music from the entire catalogue of PRINCE.

Every member of this ensemble has earned their chops working with the man himself over the long haul, and now for the first time ever, they bring their collective creativity to us - over 60 combined years of Prince collaboration spanning five decades, performing the music they helped create.

The line up includes St Paul Peterson, Shelby J, Andy Allo, Nik West, Stokely Williams (Mint Condition), Mike Scott, Jellybean Johnson, Ricky Peterson and the NPG horns.

It will be a night to remember!"

Brownmark posted on his fb-page, saying that the The Revolution wasn't asked for this tribute, so they won't be performing.

-

St. Paul serves as the show's musical director.

I can live with that. But, Mint Condition ??! (Nik West, Stokely Williams... it seems they need the cash)

-

It won't take long before they make a stupid broadway musical of Prince's life, and then everything will be ruined.

Poor Prince... I still feel so sorry for his stupid mistakes for not having a will...

And look how things run now.

It's all so shameful.

It looks like Shelby is the only confirmed performer so far.
