It’s already easy to tell that Prince’s death in April 2016 will go down as one of the decade’s defining moments. Not just music but all of pop culture lost one of its great unifiers — everyone loved Prince, or it sure seemed like it — and it’s been a difficult few months as we’ve all struggled to come to terms with a world now considerably less funky. Doing their part to soothe his throngs of heartbroken fans, his original backing band, the Revolution (also known as Wendy & Lisa, Dr. Fink, Bobby Z and Brownmark), has reunited for a summer tour to remember their fallen leader in the most purple way possible. Best remembered for their scintillating accompaniment and a bit of backstage comedy in 1984’s Purple Rain, the Revolution was the rare group of musicians who managed not only to meet Prince’s lofty standards but to make a little magic of their own, and word is they’re inviting a selection of each host city’s most talented artists to help them out onstage.
