Bluesfest Touring presents

"Celebrating Prince: with his band THE NEW POWER GENERATION"

(USA)

It is an honour for Bluesfest Touring to bring original members of The New Power Generation (The NPG) to Sydney and Melbourne in March. The NPG's intent is to honor Prince who was their boss, their mentor and to give fans a chance to celebrate and say goodbye to one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Those who knew Prince knew that he was always pushing himself and experimenting with new sounds and the musical chemistry of working with new musicians was a part of that process. When he formed The NPG in 1990 they went on together to create 'Diamond & Pearls' a record that sparked more hits on the Billboard charts than any other Prince album released since Purple Rain. These included "Cream", "Gett Off" and of course "Diamond and Pearls". The NPG's shows will be an opportunity to hear Prince's music played by the people who made it with him, including long time musical director Morris Hayes. Get ready to laugh, dance and cry to some of his biggest hits one more time.

For the NPG's Australian tour, Morris Hayes, Kirk Johnson, Tony Mosley, Damon Dickson and Mono Neon will be joined by guitarist Homer O'Dell (from the Grammy-nominated Minneapolis band "Mint Condition") and former NPG keyboard player and vocalist, Kip Blackshire. Special guests on lead vocals are Grammy-nominated Tamar Davis and longtime Prince friend and bandmate, Andr Cymone - who was in Prince's first acclaimed band, Grand Central.
