Following Prince’s sudden death in April, numerous artists from across all genres found ways to honor him. That generally entailed playing covers of his vast repertoire, but now a star-studded tribute concert in Prince’s home state of Minnesota will gather together some of the biggest names across pop, rock and R&B for what’s sure to be one wild night filled with all the classic songs and more.

“Prince The Official Tribute” has finally been announced and it will include performances from Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Christina Aguilera, Tori Kelly, John Mayer and more. Previous Prince collaborators like Morris Day and the Time and New Power Generation are also set to perform.

Details about the concert were promised in August and then pushed back to Labor Day with still no set announcement. Organizers blamed artists’ schedules and the difficulty finding one date that would accommodate everyone.

But now things are on track with the concert scheduled for October 13th at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The venue accommodates between 15,000 and 18,000 people and is expected to bring in over $1 million for Prince’s estate (via The Star Tribute). Those interested in attending can purchase tickets beginning Monday (September 19). And while in St. Paul, they can stop by Paisley Park, which will officially open as a museum one week prior.
