Prince Fans To Mark Anniversary Of His Death

Posted April 23, 2017

Of all the eerily lovely moments while spending time in Paisley Park on the anniversary eve of Prince's death, the most bittersweet was provided by the man himself.

As Wright notes, the Young Fables' cover of "Purple Rain" gives the band a chance to have Lunsford sing lead, and also afforded them an opportunity to show off his impressive guitar chops, the latter of which shine brightest on Prince's iconic solo near the middle of the track.

In tribute to the late artist, fans posted songs, friends shared memories and celebrities shared #RIPPrince messages, just as they had on the day of the musician's untimely overdose death on April 21, 2016.

Prince fans will mark the anniversary of his sudden death by gathering at sites made famous by the "Purple Rain" superstar. Some 2,000 fans from around the world paid $500 to $1,000 to attend the four-day Celebration, which was modeled after a similar event in 2000 when Prince opened his studio for a weeklong party.
