Purple Rain have completed a run of sold-out UK gigs, performing a hit-packed show which celebrates the music, life and legacy of one of the industry’s biggest icons; Prince. Now, they look to bring their show to Ireland for their first nationwide tour.
Purple Rain is an 8-piece band lead by the wonderful Jimi Love, who is backed by a solid horn, key and backing vocal troupe. Audiences are promised an authentic Prince experience, featuring all of your favourite Prince hits including ‘Kiss’, ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘When Doves Cry’. The original Prince & The Revolution drummer, Bobby Z, has hailed the show as “authentic and on the money”, making this tour something fans of Prince would be fools to miss.
