Located in the quiet idyllic suburb of Chanhassen, Minnesota, Paisley Park is Prince’s mythical creative sanctuary. Following the metaphoric success of Purple Rain in the mid 1980s, construction began on what would become a $10M, 65,000 square-foot recording and production complex complete with state of the art technology capable of outputting any form of creative work Prince could envision – from music recordings, clothing production, artwork and graphic design, music videos and even full-length feature films.

Iconic albums recorded at Paisley Park include Lovesexy, Batman, Diamonds & Pearls, The Gold Experience, The Black Album, Sign O’ The Times and Emancipation through to more recent releases such as PLECTRUMELECTRUM, ART OFFICIAL AGE and HITNRUN Phase 1 & 2. Equipped with a massive sound stage and live event space, Prince recorded many films at Paisley Park, including the feature film Graffiti Bridge and the New Year’s concert special Rave Un2 The Year 2000.

The iconic superstar would often open Paisley Park’s doors for spontaneous performance events, inviting the public into the Sound Stage or NPG Music Club rooms for marathon sets of live music. Through its storied history, many other notable musicians have spent time recording at Paisley Park, including Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Celine Deon and R.E.M. In addition, artists such as Neil Young, Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughn utilized the Sound Stage for tour preparations and rehearsals.

Prince once said, “I like to say I live in the world, but I’m not of it". In every way, Paisley Park was the fulfillment of his creative desire to live and work in a space free from limitation. Here he created a unique universe unto itself – one that allowed him to nurture and fully express his otherworldly gifts as a musician and performing artist. In his words, “Paisley Park is pretty much representative of everything I am musically”. Love, freedom, connection, community and spirituality are all ever-present at Paisley Park.

Prince envisioned Paisley Park as one day being opened to the public. Throughout the past sixteen years, he occasionally opened the studio to tours, most notably in the year 2000 as part of the special Prince: A Celebration event. With the official public opening of Paisley Park, fans from around the world will now have the very rare opportunity to tour the estate and experience first-hand this singularly unique creative sanctuary where Prince lived, led and created for more than 30 years.
