Prince drafted a press release in his own handwriting
introducing NPG as “The best band ever”
CELEBRATING PRINCE and the reunion of the most original members of the New Power Generation (NPG) was born out of the exhilarating feedback from the fans after the official Prince Tribute concert in Minnesota 2016. The longest-running member of the NPG, keyboardist Morris Hayes, who also served as Prince's Musical Director for many years, was asked to do the same job for the official tribute concert held in honour of the legendary artist. Hayes brought the original band members back together to serve as the house band (where they were joined by many other musicians throughout the night) for the epic musical celebration. The response was overwhelming in favour of bringing a scaled down version of the musical tribute to other cities around the world. Soon after that historic event, the band reunited and joined forces with other world class musicians, singers and artists to present their own tribute to their legendary mentor and brother, Prince.

Years of touring, recording, rehearsing, playing and performing with Prince helped to shape New Power Generation. Few other artists are known to have the work ethic that was a defining characteristic of Prince. Respecting the music is the philosophical approach that continues to guide the NPG today. Prince was a consummate live performer and his concerts with the NPG were legendary for the tight arrangements, stellar sound and electrifying pace. And the NPG continue to play as if their infamous boss was front and centre. Celebrating Prince is a non-stop musical kaleidoscope of the most iconic chart-topping hits from all eras of Prince's career. Classic NPG songs like "DIAMONDS and PEARLS," "GETT OFF," "CREAM," "7," and "SEXY MF," are intermingled with songs from throughout Prince's illustrious 4-decade-long career like "1999," "LET'S GO CRAZY," "POP LIFE," "SIGN O’ THE TIMES," "PURPLE RAIN," "U GOT THE LOOK," and "KISS." All Prince music performed by the very musicians who played, toured, recorded and wrote with him for years.To enter let us know what tickets are on sale on our ticket partner page.
