On 21 April 2017, on the anniversary of the Prince’s death, gathered large parts of Swedish artists for the live concert “A Tribute To Prince” at Berns in Stockholm. Teddybears, Loreen, Moneybrother, Kleerup and Oscar Zia are just some of the artists who will pay tribute to Prince – one of the world’s all time biggest musicians.

World artist Prince has affected most of the world now live performers with his genre-bending musical expression and stage personality. Now attends many of sweden’s artists in “A Tribute To Prince” at Berns.

Among the artists who occupy Stora Salongen at Berns April 21 we find Teddybears, Loreen, Moneybrother, Kleerup, Oscar Zia, Smith & Thell, Amanda Fondell, Andreas Moe, Melo, Rodde, F.N.Y., Blenda and Charlie King. And more artists may apply.

“I saw Prince when he did 21 gigs in a row at The Forum in Inglewood, outside Los Angeles. I have always had great respect for the artist, but after this I just stood and gaped. Still not quite gotten over the damn outclassed it was”, says Anders “Moneybrother” Wendin.

“We run up a hefty tribute party with live music from some of Sweden’s best artists interspersed with DJ set from Prince fans. It will be an evening with some obvious and others less waiting interpretations. I look forward to hearing Kleerup delicate interpretation on one of Prince best songs”, says the initiator and project manager Thomas Svanström on Keyflow.

The evening begins in the Stora Salongen at 21 and lasts until 03 pm.

“To pay tribute to Prince at Berns feels like a matter of course. Here has world-class artists like Jospehine Baker, Sammy Davis Jr., Shirley Bassey, Diana Ross & The Supremes and Bob Dylan played over the years. Is there somewhere we’ll make a Prince tribute is it just at Berns”, said John Iserstål at SPG Event, which is one of the organizers.

“I was completely unimpressed by guitarists running solos before and after I saw Prince at, wherever it was, in Stockholm in the 80s”, Patrik Arve, Teddybears.

“I had a massive PRINCE period when I was like 20. Sat on the floor with a high vinyl records and checked the Purple Rain again and again. Was completely cracked. He was a master of all, one of a kindsaid Melo .

First got Prince you to want to be a guitarist, , then producer, then songwriter and an artist. Prince is just everything – the top class! Choosing the song? Almost impossible, we are still looking
said Mary Jane Smith, Smith & Tell (2016 Winner of Denniz Pop Awardz).

I say like Prince : “Real music lovers are actually my favorite kind of people because they like to know, rather than just be told what to think,” Pe-Cut, legendary DJ and one of the evening’s DJ’s.

“We have a new era and soon we reach the year 1 e.Pr. Along with some of Sweden’s finest will we in Edgeology give the entire Berns opportunity to remember the greatest of them all. Everything else should we forget”, says the house band Edgeology.
