Prince's iconic band The Revolution have announced their first European shows in 33 years.
The band represent perhaps The Purple One's most iconic ensemble, working on projects including 1984’s world-conquering film and soundtrack 'Purple Rain' as well as appearing on '1999', 'Around The World In A Day', 'Parade' and 'Sign O’The Times'.
Playing just one European tour 33 years ago, The Revolution will re-unite for a small smattering of shows in early 2019.
“Back in 2014, Bobby and I met with Prince,” says Fink, “and he opened the meeting with his desire to reunite with the Revolution for some future shows. Sadly for us, this did not come to fruition, which makes our reunion all the more poignant."
“We’re the ones that he held on to,” says Coleman. “We walked on the moon together—he would say, ‘You guys are the only ones who know what I know about this.’”
The European dates include shows in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Paris, with The Revolution set to play London's Shepherds Bush Empire on February 13th.
