Rumors of Hologram Prince have swirled since the superstar's death, even though he considered the practice "demonic." Target Center and Paisley Park seem to have reached a compromise: PRINCE: Live on the Big Screen, a concert event featuring "never-before-released audio and video of Prince."
Digital Prince will strut across the freshly renovated Target Center's 18-by-33-foot video screen on April 21 in Minneapolis. He'll be accompanied live by "a super-group of musicians" who performed with Classic Prince, according to Tuesday's press release. Tickets ($39-$199) go on sale Saturday via the Target Center box office and AXS.com.
Target Center's screen can't compete with the 68-by-120-foot behemoth at U.S. Bank Stadium, though it is "the largest center-hung arena scoreboard in the Upper Midwest," the highly specific Timberwolves organization reports. Prince, for comparison's sake, stood 5-foot-2.
Set to coincide with the second anniversary of Prince's death, PRINCE: Live on the Big Screen will be the "centerpiece" event of Celebration 2018, a series of Prince-related remembrances running from April 19-22. Ticket prices have yet to be announced; fans spent $500-$1,000 to attend the inaugural Celebration.
