The first and only officially approved symphonic production by The Prince Estate on Thursday September 6, 2018 at 8pm. Questlove—avid Prince fan and a member of The Roots—has helped curate the music and orchestral arrangements that will be played by the symphony. Tickets range from $45-$95.

The producers, Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment, will present the music of Prince like never before, with a full symphony orchestra. In addition, the show will feature a live band with world class musicians and vocalists who will perform alongside the orchestra. 4U will draw from Prince’s singular and extensive music catalog, highlighting many of his hits that captivated generations of fans, alongside lesser known gems.

April 21, 2016 will live in infamy as the day we lost a genius, an icon, a legend. Prince is widely regarded as one of the best musicians ever to live, and one of the greatest showmen of all time. His music makes up the soundtracks of our lives—from the parties of our youth to our weddings; and we share his music with our children who repeat the cycle. Great music lives on forever, and, it’s with this in mind that we introduce 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince.

The Prince Estate passionately presents Prince’s life and work, and cultivates opportunities to further his legacy. As the singular, authoritative source on all things Prince, The Prince Estate inspires and educates fans, celebrates Prince in his totality, and stewards Prince’s legacy into the future.
