From the Band That Backed Prince Comes a New Musical Celebration
Are you ready to experience The Revolution? Join the music legends who helped to bring the world Prince when they perform live at House of Blues Houston on Sunday, December 30th.
The Revolution -- Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, BrownMark and Dr. Fink -- is most commonly known as the versatile band behind the music icon, Prince. Merging funk, rock n' roll, rhythm and blues, pop & psychedelia genres, the band is considered to be one of the most successful music acts of all time.
The Revolution rose to international fame and prominence in the mid-1980s with Purple Rain, a rock operatic project centered around Prince that catapulted him and the group to instant stardom. The project consisted of two parts: a studio film and an accompanying soundtrack/album. The film was a box office smash hit, while the soundtrack is regarded by many as one of the greatest albums of all time. The record, Purple Rain, was recently inducted into the Library of Congress to be persevered for generations to come. After the summer of 1985, The Revolution soon found themselves to be a global phenomenon, following the release of the film and touring throughout the United States, Europe and Japan.
Following the tragic, sudden passing of their fearless leader in April 2016, The Revolution reunited to honor the musical genius that Prince instilled in them and upon the world. In September, they returned to where it all started -- First Avenue -- an intimate venue in Minneapolis that was very important to Prince & The Revolution during the Purple Rain era and the years prior. The core, original members have decided to remain united and continue to honor and pay tribute to Prince in the best way possible; playing the music they helped create with him and with it, heal this new world they now find themselves in without the incomparable, iconic Prince.
