Prince Day in Minneapolis?

I don't know if this has been posted here, but did Prince ever recieve a special day from his home town? I am asking this because I read today that its Beyonce Day in Minneapolis, where she did tributes to Prince and Vanity 6 during her concert http://www.billboard.com/...eyonce-day If he hasn't I think it would be a lovely gesture biggrin

I don't think so, but declaring a day for various musicians seems to be a kind of new thing that Minneapolis is doing a lot lately. The first I recall was about a year ago at the Stevie Wonder concert, when a representative of the mayor got on stage with Stevie and they declared it Stevie Wonder Day in Minneapolis. Then in November the mayor herself actually got on stage at a Janet Jackson concert and declared that Nov 1st is Janet Jackson Day in Minneapolis. And now it's Beyonce Day in Minnesota. So I think something will be coming up for Prince, probably on June 7th. Which of course is kind of weird since he didn't celebrate birthdays, but it's as good a point of reference as any.

Thanks, so they have been doing this for a while and have never done one for Prince. Maybe they have asked and like the the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he turned them down.
