Five years to the day after Prince died, fans will be able to tour his famed Minnesota complex.
April 21 marks the fifth anniversary of the shocking death of Prince. In honor of the artist known as the Purple One, the Paisley Park Atrium, his home studio and “creative sanctuary,” is opening its doors to fans to pay tribute. Make an advance reservation at the official Paisley Park website.
“On the fifth anniversary of the passing of the incomparable Prince, Paisley Park, his home and creative sanctuary, is opening its doors for fans to pay tribute and celebrate his life,” the announcement reads. “The Paisley Park Atrium, 7801 Audubon Road, will be open for free visitation on Wednesday April 21 from 9:00am – 9:00pm.
