It’s been more than two years since Prince left this plane of existence, but his spirit and his music live on. Purple Rain will forever remain Purple Rain. The Batman soundtrack will forever remain the Batman soundtrack. Unreleased music will soon be released. We’ll always stay wet.

Now, the one and only Questlove—Roots drummer, Tonight Show drummer, Prince superfan—has curated “4U – A Symphonic Celebration of Prince.” A full symphony orchestra will present Prince’s hits and deep cuts “like never before” in this estate-approved show, and a live band “including amazing musicians and vocalists” will play alongside the orchestra. Questlove will not be among those amazing musicians, but he helped curate the thing, so that’s something.

The tour will make a stop at the Riverside Theater on Friday, October 11. Reserved seating tickets are $40, $50, $60, and $75, and go on sale Friday, May 18, at 10 a.m.
