DIA Honors Prince at Friday Night Live

Posted: 06/07/16

In April, the world lost one of the greatest musical geniuses of our time, his purple highness, Rogers Nelson, aka Prince. Over the past 30 years, Prince created music and films that were cutting edge, timeless classics. From Purple Rain to The Most Beautiful Girl in the World and beyond, his music was loved around the world and right here in Detroit. Holding a special place in his heart, Prince, played Detroit 29 times with his last concert being the unforgettable Hit and Run at the historic Fox Theater. On Friday, June 10, the Detroit Institute of Arts will celebrate the life and legacy of this pioneer with the Prince Tribute and Friday Night Live Funk Dance Party.

This free event will take place on the Woodward Plaza and grounds of the DIA from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. The event is free to the public, but reservations are strongly encouraged to access the upper pavilion. DJ Thornstryker will spin some of Prince’s best tracks from 7 to 9, joined by some of Detroit’s best dance crews performing free-style and challenging each other to spontaneous dance battles. At 9:30 the dancing will continue with a live performance by The Mighty Funhouse and special guests. Non-alcoholic beverages can be purchased from 7 to 9 and there will be a cash bar from 9 to 11.

For more information and to RSVP please visit www.eventbrite.com  or call (313) 833-3237. The Detroit Institute of Arts is located at 5200 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48202. Limited street parking is available along Putnum, Kirby, Warren and John R. Paid parking is available at the Wayne State University Rackham Lot and the Detroit Institute of Arts Lot. This area is also served by both the Detroit Department of Transportation and SMART.
