Best known as the backing band for Prince's Purple Rain, the Revolution was the funky, multi-cultural backbone of some of the Minneapolis artist's most seminal work. Though the group disbanded in the ‘80s, some of its founding members (including guitarist Wendy Melvoin and drummer Bobby Z) reunited in the wake of Prince's sudden death in 2016. Here, they'll celebrate the life of their late collaborator with a tribute to the Purple One's revolutionary spirit and sound.
