The Prince Experience performs Purple Rain Staff Pick

When: Fri., Jan. 10, 7 p.m. 2020
Price: $15-$35
Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called life. And since the untimely death of Prince Rogers Nelson in 2016, getting through life has been a bit of a drag. OK, so it’s been more than a drag; it’s been an orange-tinged totally purple-less nightmare. Though nothing may ever truly compare to Prince, thanks to the Prince Experience, we can still party like it’s 1999. (No, but really, can we please go back to 1999?!) Anyway, performer Gabriel Sanchez has spent the better part of the past two decades embodying the musicality, physicality, and swagger of the late, great icon to deliver a hit-spanning performance. This time around, the Prince Experience will perform Prince’s 1984 masterpiece Purple Rain in its entirety. Though the project originated as a cover band since 2016 Sanchez has said he approaches each performance as a tribute to the Beautiful One. If you didn’t catch Prince’s final Detroit appearance (which sold out within minutes) at the Fox Theatre in 2015, close your eyes and go crazy here.
