The Prince estate has officially partnered up with the legendary drummer of The Roots, Questlove to curate an orchestral nature tour in honor of the late icon titled, “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince.”

According to Rolling Stone, the shows will be presented under the banner of Live Nation Urban and will cast the Wolf Trap Orchestra, a live band, along with many vocalists who will perform Prince classics and deep cuts stashed in the icon’s broad musical catalog.

In partnership with the Prince estate, Questlove is responsible for curating the show’s set list and orchestral plans in which the photos and videos that will be used during the production will be administered by the late musician’s estate.

The “4U” tour is officially the first major live tour that has been approved by the Prince estate, despite the success of two of the late icon’s backing bands The Revolution and New Power Generation, who both went on their own tours last year. For the past two years, the Prince estate has held their very own event, honoring the pop music legend with a four-day event at Paisley Park involving live music, special presentations, and panel discussions.

“4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince,” will take off in September in the state of New Jersey at State Theatre and proceed to hit key cities including Washington, Brooklyn, Chicago, Houston, and many more. The tour will embrace the region of North America in which additional dates are subject to inclusion into 2019. Tickets for this massive tour can be purchased right over on “4U” tour’s own website.

The “4U” tour follows a stream of fresh bound Prince content in the likes of TIDAL and Jay Z coming in unison with the Prince estate to curate a new Prince album which is available exclusively for just 14 days on the acclaimed streaming platform.
