THE REVOLUTION Continues... PRINCE’S ICONIC BAND TO TOUR U.S. AND ANNOUNCE FIRST EUROPEAN SHOWS IN 33 YEARS

“I’ve got the baddest band in the universe” - Prince 1986

(Minneapolis, MN - May 15, 2018)  Prince played with many talented musicians over the course of his 40-year career, but his most celebrated and iconic allies will always be Bobby Z, Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Matt Fink & Brownmark; The Revolution.  They resume their U.S. tour on June 9th at the Wichita River Festival in Kansas and will hit several major U.S. Festivals this summer and fall including: Arroyo Seco, Bumbershoot and ACL, before heading over to Europe, in early 2019, for their first tour in 33 years!   They'll be at the Majestic Theatre on October 4th - and you can win tickets on WOMC before they go on sale this Friday! 

“We can’t wait to perform for our fans in the cities we missed on The Revolution reunion tour last year and we’re also looking forward to returning to some of the towns where we’ve already performed,” said Matt Fink.  “We’ve been enjoying reconnecting with everyone so much!”

The Revolution were the group that backed Prince during his rise to fame on his greatest work, including 1984’s world-conquering film and soundtrack Purple Rain as well as appearing on 1999, Around The World In A Day, Parade and Sign O’The Times. In April of 2017, the band decided it was time to return to the stage to perform the music that they helped create with Prince. To much critical and fan praise, the quintet set out on the road, hitting much of the U.S. throughout last summer, ending the tour with a final sold out show in Los Angeles on Labor Day. While taking a quick break, it became obvious that there were many parts of the country who still wanted to see the reunited band perform.  Additionally, after more than thirty years since their only full European shows with Prince (The Parade ‘Hit And Run’ tour of August 1986) the band have decided to return there in February 2019 for four very special shows in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Paris and London.

Amsterdam, Paris and London hold very special places in the hearts of Prince fans as they were the first cities that he played outside of the USA in June 1981 with a band that featured Bobby Z, Lisa Coleman & Matt Fink. Bassist Brownmark joined just after those European dates with guitarist Wendy Melvoin completing the line-up in 1983.  

After Prince’s passing in April 2016, The Revolution immediately re-connected but stayed out of the public eye until a series of three triumphant, emotional shows at the historic First Avenue club in September of that year. Fans flew in from around the world to witness the band at the site where the concert scenes in Purple Rain were filmed. When they were approached to perform at Paisley Park as part of the celebration of Prince’s life on the first anniversary of his passing, they decided it was time to take The Revolution show back on the road.
