Prince's Former Band The Revolution Announces New Reunion Shows After His Passing
By Rachel McRady
Prince may be gone, but his music will live on in his former band, The Revolution. The hit ‘80s group, which was formed by the late singer, made a special announcement on Facebook on Tuesday.
“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,” one of the large group’s members said in the clip. “And we want to let you know that we’ll be there soon.”
The Revolution, who now consist of Brown Mark, Bobby Z., Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman and Matt "Doctor" Fink, reached its height in the mid-‘80s before disbanding in 1986. It’s been less than a week since the news broke that Prince died at age 57 in his Minnesota home. The cause of death has not been determined.
A private memorial was held at the residence over the weekend. Prince’s longtime friend and collaborator Sheila E. opened up to ET about the service.
Sheila also has plans to turn Prince’s Paisley Park estate into a shrine to the late singer.
"We're hoping to make Paisley what [Prince wanted] it to be. [He] was working on it being a museum," she shared. "He's been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle."
