Artists and musicians are continuing to unite in the wake of Prince’s tragic passing, including former band the Revolution. The lineup of bandmates Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, Brown Mark, and Matt Fink have announced they will regroup to honor the late icon in a released video, in which they explain their decision.
“We have decided, after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows,” says Melvoin. “We want to let you know that we’ll be there soon.”
The Revolution were apart of several of Prince’s most iconic recordings, including Purple Rain and Around the World In A Day. The band officially split in 1986 after the Hit n Run tour, which helped launch Parade, the soundtrack for Under The Cherry Moon. This will not be the first time the group has reunited, as some of the members joined Prince on stage in his hometown of Minneapolis in 2000, to perform the song America.
