Nothing Compares 2 PRINCE
Featuring members from NPG (New Power Generation), The Family, The Time and Purple Rain these are the musicians, singers, producers and composers who were at Prince’s right hand throughout his incredible, trail-blazing journey – all co-conspirators in the creation of the music that changed the world, blending funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop into something much bigger than the sum of its parts.
A hugely ambitious project, the concert features over 12 extraordinary musicians and singers from around the world performing music from the entire catalogue of PRINCE.
Every member of this ensemble has earned their chops working with the man himself over the long haul, and now for the first time ever, they bring their collective creativity to us - over 60 combined years of Prince collaboration spanning five decades, performing the music they helped create.
The line up includes St Paul Peterson, Shelby J, Andy Allo, Nik West, Stokley Williams, Mike Scott, Jellybean Johnson, Ricky Peterson and the NPG hornz.
It will be a night to remember!
“I am so excited to be coming back to Australia this April, heading up an All Star line up of singers and musicians to honour the incredible life and music of Prince. The entire band was fortunate to play or collaborate with him, and we are honoured to keep his memory and music alive at the world premiere of "Nothing Compares 2 Prince.” Saint Paul
“I’m Absolutely Honored to be returning to Australia, a place Prince LUVED, to celebrate his Musical Legacy with this All-Star Line Up of MEGA-Talented Musicians and Singers. Nothing Compares 2 Prince Yal’. YES! This is gonna Be EPIC & I’m gonna Sing my FACE OFF” Shelby J
“To say that I am excited to return to Australia to honor my friend, Prince, is an understatement. I was there with him for his Piano and a Microphone tour in 2016 and the memories are enormous. For me, this will be an emotional occasion and one of the hardest performances I will have done. I have nothing but pure love for this place and for the people I met while there last time. I am HONORED and HUMBLED to work with these wonderful artists and musicians for this world premiere of “Nothing Compares To Prince”. Nik West
