The Black Jacket Symphony - Prince Purple Rain - A Celebration of Life
“Word spreads quickly when a BJS show is announced, and it’s a tough ticket to get.”
— The Birmingham News
“Black Jacket Symphony reminds everyone just how magical the art of the album can be.”
— Scott Register, Reg’s Coffeehouse
Losing an iconic musician is tough. Losing a musical genius is worse.
Prince was a musical innovator known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence and wide vocal range. His music encompassed R&B, rock, pop, funk and even gospel. He could sound innocent, forlorn, bluesy, funny, sexy, seductive, desperate and mysterious. He could bring tears to your eyes – just check out the video of his guitar solo on “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” at his 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
One of Prince’s most memorable albums holds together best. One album covers all his musical bases and showcases all his amazing talents – songwriting, guitar playing, onstage presence, soul. One album has sold more than 13 million copies in the U.S. alone and encapsulates the celebration of his life. That one signature album is PURPLE RAIN.
As only they can, Black Jacket Symphony will perform PURPLE RAIN in its entirety, followed by a second set of Prince’s greatest hits. We unfortunately were unable to book a second show, so do not delay getting tickets to this absolutely certain sold-out concert experience.
