Prince’s Paisley Park announces details for second annual Celebration event

This year’s festivities will feature performances from Sheila E. and others.

Prince's estate has been making countless headlines following the passing of the music icon in 2016, such as with JAY-Z famously calling out the late legend's legal counsel on 444 for his disappointment in their handling of his estate, behavior he feels disrespects the Purple One's intentions and follows a money-hungry agenda.

While the battle for control over his trove of unreleased music continues, Prince's estate has announced the details for the second annual four-day Celebration gathering, to take place at the legendary Paisley Park in April.

And talks his iconic artistry.

Per the announcement, Celebration 2018, the second annual four-day gathering the Minnesota complex, will feature a variety of live performances, including from Prince's longtime protégé, Sheila E.

The event will also feature the live debut of a new supergroup comprised of members of Paisley Park and New Power Generation alumni, as well as includes various guest speakers and other musical guests.

On the two-year anniversary of Prince's passing, April 21, the Target Center in Minneapolis will host an event, titled Prince: Live on the Big Screen, which will include a concert featuring "newly remastered and never-before-released audio and video of Prince accompanied live on the Target Center stage by an all-star ensemble of musicians who performed alongside him throughout his storied career."

Tickets for Celebration 2018 and more information can be found via Paisley Park's site.
