Official Prince tribute concert confirmed

An official Prince tribute concert will take place on October 13 at the US Bank Stadium in the singer's hometown of Minnesota, his family has confirmed.

In a statement to Associated Press US, it was announced that performers will be revealed on a rolling basis. Tickets will go on sale next month. 

"We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince's life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis," the statement read. "We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible." 

Numerous stars have paid tribute to the Purple One since his death from a drug overdose on April 21. Madonna sang Nothing Compares 2 U and Purple Rain - the latter with Stevie Wonder - at the Billboard Music Awards in May, while BET dedicated much of its awards show last month to Prince.
