The members of Prince’s former backing band have revealed plans for a tour later this year. The band, dubbed the Revolution at the time, appeared with the Purple One during his Purple Rain era and reunited last year for a tribute show after the legend’s death. Keyboardist Lisa Coleman spoke with rollingstone.com about the experience of playing the music without Prince at the tribute and said: “It was really intense,” said Coleman. “Difficult. The music was mercurial. Like, we couldn’t quite grab it. I mean, we were trained to look at Prince for cues, and even if he’s wrong, he’s right. We were looking into a space and then looking at each other going, ‘What is this?'” The Revolution Tour Dates April 23 – Chicago, IL @ Metro April 27 – Washington, DC @ The Fillmore Silver Spring April 28 – New York, NY @ B.B. King’s April 29 – Philadelphia, PA @ Theatre of Living Arts Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
