Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment are teaming up to pay tribute to late music icon Prince in a mostly unexpected way. The “Purple Rain” star, no stranger to dramatic gestures, will be celebrated with the 35-city 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince, a Prince Estate-approved outing that will present the Purple One’s music with a full symphony orchestra for the first time, playing alongside a live band featuring vocalists.

The show will draw from Prince’s extensive catalog, with a release announcing the tour promising that it will highlight “many of his hits that captivated generations of fans, alongside lesser-known gems.” The set list and orchestral arrangements have been curated by avid Prince fanatic Questlove of The Roots. The tour is slated to officially kick off on Sept. 8 at Wolf Trap in Washington, D.C. with accompaniment from the Wolf Trap Orchestra.
