 In All, Estate News, Events

(May 5, 2018) Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment announced today an agreement with The Prince Estate for a global musical partnership celebrating the music of Prince.

Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment will create and tour the first and only official Estate approved symphonic Prince celebration, titled 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince.  4U will present the music of Prince like never before, with a full symphony orchestra.  In addition, each show will feature a live band with world class musicians and vocalists who will perform alongside the orchestra.  4U will draw from Prince’s singular and extensive music catalog, highlighting many of his hits that captivated generations of fans, alongside lesser known gems. Questlove, an avid Prince fan, has helped curate the music and orchestral arrangements that will be played by the symphony.

The 2018 tour officially starts on September 8th, in Washington DC at Wolf Trap with the Wolf Trap Orchestra, followed by an extensive US and European Tour.

“We’re looking forward to working with Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment on this production and giving fans a unique experience” says Troy Carter of The Prince Estate.

“It’s such a blessing to be able to pay homage to and celebrate the music of a creative genius like Prince. One of the goals of Live Nation Urban is to create unique live platforms and to redefine what the norms of the live experience are. We are beyond excited to be working alongside the Estate in creating what we hope to be a long standing artistic celebration of an artist who inspired so many”— says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.

“TCG Entertainment is honored to be working with The Prince Estate and Live Nation Urban to create 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince. 4U will entertain audiences globally and we are humbled to work on a show based on Prince and his music given how important he is to people around the world”– says Stephen Cook, President of TCG Entertainment.
