A SYMPHONIC CELEBRATION OF PRINCE TO SWEDEN FOR THREE CONCERTS

By on September 21, 2018

Prince is one of history’s most important artists and most influential creators. When he tragically left us in 2016, he also left a huge void and a huge lack in the music world. In December, Live Nation and Prince Estate will host three celebration concerts in Sweden – cured by none other than Questlove (from The Roots among others). 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince will showcase Prince Music in a whole new way – of a complete symphony orchestra with some of the world’s best musicians.

December 8 – Malmö Arena, Malmö
December 9 – Annexet, Stockholm
December 10 – Partille Arena, Gothenburg

Questlove is one of the world’s most recognized musicians, music connoisseurs and above all: Prince lover. That’s why he was the one who would cure the 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince music, so obviously. Questlove himself summarizes the concerts:

”Because of his untimely transition: fans and supporters are trying to find solace and comfort in celebrating his music and creations. So I wanted to give them an environment to reminisce, dance, smile, cry, & sing to Prince.”

This is the first time Prince Estate stands behind a symphonic tribute of Prince in this way. Each concert will be a unique experience with world-class musicians – and all the music we love from Prince’s amazing career. As a composer Brent Fischer has been taken in – son of Clare Fischer who arranged orchestras for Prince for many years. In addition, the recognized composer Miguel Atwood Ferguson is part of the creative team – and SRae Productions represents an incredible visual experience during the evenings.

It will be a performance for all the senses of Prince hits, fanfavorites, medleys and all performed by the Stockholm Concert Orchestra. Something similar has never been done – and the evenings in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö in December will be three very special evenings for old and young Prince fans!

“Instead of hate – celebrate!” – Prince
