The band formally known as Purple Rain: A Celebration of Prince
NEW PURPLE CELEBRATION
“Fantastic! As close any as any mere mortal should ever reasonably expect to get to reaching the godlike genius that was Prince. Highly recommended.”
NEW PURPLE CELEBRATION, the band formally known as PURPLE RAIN: A CELEBRATION OF PRINCE, are back with a brand new name but the same “brilliantly funky,” (Basingstoke Observer) musical extravaganza celebrating the music, life and legacy of Prince.
NEW PURPLE CELEBRATION deliver a non-stop, hit packed show, spanning more than two hours. Described by the Basingstoke Observer as “nothing short of a huge party,” expect to see, hear and feel the hits from one of the most loved artists of all time; 1999, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain, Kiss, Diamonds And Pearls, U Got The Look, When Doves Cry, Cream, I Wanna Be Your Lover and many more…
A full nine-piece band, NEW PURPLE CELEBRATION have been together since 2004. One of the only European Prince Tribute acts with a guitar playing ‘Prince’, the band is fronted by founder-member JIMI LOVE. He in turn is backed by a band of top quality musicians with a wealth of worldwide touring experience, including a horn section, backing vocals and two keys players. All performing together because of their mutual respect and love for the music or Prince.
“An excellent night of great songs and terrific musicianship… If you’re looking for a night out this is the show to see.”
