Prince Tribute Tickets Sell Out ‘Instantly’
Tickets for an official Prince tribute featuring Stevie Wonder and Christina Aguilera in the late singer’s home state have sold out “instantly.” Seats for the concert in St. Paul, Minnesota went on sale at 10 a.m. local time on Monday and sold out within minutes.
The gig was initially scheduled for the Minnesota Vikings’ new home stadium, but it was moved to the smaller Xcel Energy Center. Fans who picked up tickets, which ranged in price from $19.99 to $152.50, will also get the chance to watch tributes from Chaka Khan, John Mayer and Tori Kelly, backed by members of Prince’s backing band 3rdEyeGirl. Prince died following an accidental drug overdose at his Paisley Park recording studio in April.
