PRINCE’s Paisley Park To Open It’s Doors For Tours Starting October 6th! Tickets To Go On Sale Friday

Paisley Park By Nick Scribner

Paisley Park, Prince's recording studio, will now be a museum and it will be opening a lot faster than anyone anticipated with tickets going on sale this Friday, August 26th.

The Core Media Group, which runs Graceland, will now be running Paisley Park. The Core Media Group owns 85% percent of the rights to the name, image and likeness of Elvis Presley, and the operations of Graceland. Right now, they will be just running Paisley Park for the next four years at least.

The Core Media Group could pay cash immediately to the estate which is in desperate need of funds, which we reported earlier this month. Not including July or August, legal fees already totaled $2 million dollars. Also, the family will start getting money which is one of the main concerns.

Tyka Nelson, Prince's sister had this to say about Paisley Park being turned into a Museum;

Judge Rules To Unseal PRINCE’s Divorce Records To Second Wife

The Star Tribune's lawyer earlier this month said that PRINCE's right privacy died when he did. It appears they may be right. Even if the privacy of whom he was married to is still alive.

Today Judge Thomas Fraser ruled for the divorce documents between Prince and Manuela Testolini from 2006 to be unsealed. Testolini has thirty days to object to certain documents being made public. The Star Tribune made the requests to access the documents which started the legal proceeding in the first place.

Testolini and the music icon Prince married in 2001 and were married for over 5 years.

Privacy? Yea right!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Per the Tribune; Testolini and Bremer Trust, the special administrator managing Prince’s multi-million dollar estate, will have 30 days to bring public motions regarding specific documents in the divorce filing. Otherwise, everything — with the exception of certain confidential details — will be unsealed.

Minnesota State Fair To “Unite In Purple” & Celebrate PRINCE August 26th

Prince NPG Records 2011

Just a few days before his former backing band The Revolution headline First Avenue for 3 straight shows, the Minnesota state fair will celebrate PRINCE August 26th with an event they are calling "Unite In Purple" with tributes to the music icon.

All people attending the state fair that day are encouraged to wear Prince gear or dress in purple from 5 p.m. til close on August 26th.

The events planned are:

Prince music and tributes throughout the park,

a lasertainment show,

and a "Prince Party in the Park" with music and dancing at Carousel Park led by Prince's personal DJ, GenerationNOW's Dudley D.

"The idea is to get people together around the one icon that transcended generations and cultures and communities and ages," said fair spokeswoman Brienna Schuette. "He was a person who brought everybody together and the fair is a place that brings people together."

It is kind of cool but the "Party In The Park" had me thinking about Paisley Park and partying with Prince himself. You can't go wrong with DJ Dudley D though.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Speaking of Paisley Park, there were rumors last week that it was to be sold. As we told you though, there will be properties sold, but NOT Paisley Park.
