April 20, 2019, Saturday - The Prince Legacy Tour

Times: 10am - 1pm April 20 & June 8

Location: Starting and ending location is Minneapolis Visitors Information Center, 505 Nicollet Mall

The Prince Legacy Tour hosted by Experience the Twin Cities

Join us as we honor the life of Prince - one of the greatest musical legends to emerge out of the Twin Cities! Offered on special commemorative dates (or by private booking), this exciting bus tour will take you to all the important sites that played a role in creating the rock icon Prince eventually became. From important places of his youth to some of the venues he performed in, you’ll gain a better understanding of why Prince chose to remain in the Twin Cities after becoming a mega-star. This 3-hour bus tour will allow you to experience the same places Prince did, and is a must-see for any serious Prince fan! Option available to add on a tour of Paisley Park at an additional cost, based on availability. This tour does not include an inside visit to Paisley Park.
