    “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,”

    “Bringing everyone together” will not be possible unless this concert is made available to ALL – COUNTLESS world-wide fans – by social media format[s] such as FREE online services. WHY? There is not a venue on our planet that could seat the fans who will forever continue to carry PRINCE in their hearts!

    That said,there is surely no one amongst us that envisions themselves being denied the grand gift of a celebratory tribute to our brother Prince Rogers Nelson!

    To the family of Prince: a legion of world fans are watching and waiting. Please both – honour his enduring memory – and our perpetual love, as you and the family create this tribute!

    i think it’s too soon, not too late. The tributes just make you miss him more. No one can come close to that type of charisma who is still alive.

    But what of this new supposed love child with the 99% DNA match? If that pans out true he’d be the sole relation entitled to everything. Tyka wouldn’t have the dough to do this on her own one wouldn’t think? U think there’s any truth to it?
