In 1979 a young Prince formed his band and called it the Revolution. The Revolution was the backup band in the Purple Rain movie and on the accompanying album. And although the band members broke up in 1986, on the heels of Prince’s death, they’ve decided to reunite for some shows.

“We have decided, after spending three or four days together now, grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows,” Wendy Melvoin said.
