From his debut in 1978 until his death on Thursday, April 21, Prince has made a huge impact in music, pop culture, and basically the entire universe. His passing shocked everyone who thought he would continue longer pass the age of 57. Even though he is now gone, his music will live on through tributes and memorials, but this latest announcement from his first band is the biggest news (and suprise) for die-hard and casual fans!
Recently, the surviving members of The Revolution – Bobby Z., Brown Mark, Matt Fink (“Dr. Fink“), Wendy Melvoin, and Lisa Coleman – have announced through Facebook they will reunite for select concert dates.
SPIN writes this:
“We have decided, after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows,” says Melvoin, speaking for the group in a video posted to Brown Mark’s Facebook page. The Revolution’s members gathered in Minnesota to remember the late musician, TMZ reported.
There is no announcement yet of where and when The Revolution will perform. The group is one of the more well-known backing groups for Prince throughout his career. They performed in different incarnations from 1979 through ’86, and also appeared in both the Purple Rain film and album. He would later perform with the New Power Generation and 3rdEyeGirl among many.
