QUESTLOVE IS ON THE VERGE OF CURATING AN OFFICIAL PRINCE ORCHESTRAL TRIBUTE TOUR

By IME EKPO • MAY 17, 2018

The Prince estate has officially partnered up with the legendary drummer of The Roots, Questlove to curate an orchestral nature tour in honor of the late icon titled, “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince.”

According to Rolling Stone, the shows will be presented under the banner of Live Nation Urban and will cast the Wolf Trap Orchestra, a live band, along with many vocalists who will perform Prince classics and deep cuts stashed in the icon’s broad musical catalog.

In partnership with the Prince estate, Questlove is responsible for curating the show’s set list and orchestral plans in which the photos and videos that will be used during the production will be administered by the late musician’s estate.

The “4U” tour is officially the first major live tour that has been approved by the Prince estate, despite the success of two of the late icon’s backing bands The Revolution and New Power Generation, who both went on their own tours last year. For the past two years, the Prince estate has held their very own event, honoring the pop music legend with a four-day event at Paisley Park involving live music, special presentations, and panel discussions.
