Tickets for "4U" will go on sale Friday, May 25 at 10 a.m. Prices, shows, artists, dates and times are subject to change at any time without notice.

Prince's family and friends are making contributions as well, with a video presentation featuring never-before-seen footage, courtesy of the estate.

It was announced by Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment in partnership with The Prince Estate. A full symphony orchestra will present Prince's hits and deep cuts "like never before" in this estate-approved show, and a live band "including unbelievable musicians and vocalists" will play alongside the orchestra.

Former Prince backing bands the Revolution and New Power Generation both toured in 2017, but 4U represents the first tour backed by the Prince since his death in April 2016.

The Roots drummer Questlove is curating, producing and directing a full symphony orchestra show paying tribute to the music of Prince.

"It's such a blessing to be able to pay homage to and celebrate the music of a creative genius like Prince", said Shawn Gee, president of Live Nation Urban. 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.
