For those who were looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift, Prince may have just saved the day. A LiveNation announcement that was released last night stated that the pop music legend will stop by the Royal Farms Arena on Sunday for a surprise “Rally 4 Peace” concert, following last week’s civil unrest over the death of Freddie Gray.
“In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the US. As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence,” the news release read.
Surprise musical guests are expected to join Prince and his 3RDEYEGIRL band, according to the announcement. Prince also will perform his unreleased protest song “Baltimore,” which he wrote last week, at the special concert.
Tickets for the show go on sale at 5 p.m. tonight at livenation.com
