PRINCE & THE REVOLUTION – PURPLE RAIN. A CAT Club presentation. SOLD OUT.
February 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£10
Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar and, surprisingly, that is exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and heavy metal with nine superbly crafted songs.
Presented by STUART WILLOUGHBY, author of Minneapolis Reign
Part travel guide and part biography, this unofficial guide to Minneapolis is one Prince fan’s emotional account of an incredible journey he felt compelled to make in honour of his musical hero.
The sudden death of legendary rock musician Prince Rogers Nelson on April 21st 2016 sent shockwaves around the world.
One year on, Stuart Willoughby, a fan from the north east of England, made a four thousand mile pilgrimage to Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis in an attempt to understand the life and work of this seminal artist. Arriving in the U.S. in the anniversary week of Prince’s passing, Stuart found himself on an incredible adventure that brought him closer to Prince than he ever could have imagined.
