The family of the late great Prince has finally announced a date to give a tribute to the Purple One, who suddenly died in April. The concert will take place at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on October 13th, 2016. Performers for the tribute are to be announced in the near future.

The family released a statement to Associated Press:

We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince’s life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis.

We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible.

Tickets will go on sale in August. Hopefully, it will be televised for those who cannot attend. *crosses fingers*
