The concert was created in partnership with Prince's estate, which will provide photos and videos for the concert's visuals, and helped curate the show's setlist with Questlove. The show will include classic Prince songs and deep cuts performed by the Wolf Trap Orchestra with arrangements by Questlove.

The new concert is just the latest in a stream of announcements of new Prince content: Tidal and JAY-Z are assembling an album of new Prince songs for 2019, a book of the artist's photos and poetry is on the way, and 50 pages of his memoirs will be released this year.

"4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince" has announced an already massive run of North American tour dates, with more shows promised in 2018 and 2019. See those below and get tickets at the show's website.
