Courtesy of The RevolutionThe classic Purple Rain-era lineup of Prince’s backing band The Revolution has greatly expanded its touring plans.

The group’s reunion began in the wake of Prince’s death in April 2016 with a trio of concerts at First Avenue, the Minneapolis venue where Purple Rain took shape. Reaction was so positive from both the musicians and their fans that The Revolution is now mounting a full North American tour, beginning April 21 at Celebration 2017 at Prince’s famed Paisley Park complex. Dates are set through mid-July with more expected soon.

The Revolution consists of guitarist Wendy Melvoin, bassist Brown Mark (aka Mark Brown), drummer Bobby Z (aka Robert Rivkin) and keyboardists Matt Fink and Lisa Coleman.
