A tour called “4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince” will present the music of Prince with a full symphony orchestra. The tour, presented by Live Nation Urban and TCG Entertainment, is described in a press release as “the first and only official estate-approved symphonic Prince celebration.”

In addition, each show will feature a live band and vocalists who will perform alongside the orchestra. 4U will draw from Prince’s music catalog, highlighting many of his hits alongside lesser known tunes. Questlove of The Roots has helped curate the music and orchestral arrangements that will be played by the symphony.
