Prince…Tribute on Oct. 13.

There will be Purple Rain falling in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis once again on Oct. 13.

That’s the date for an all-star Prince tribute concert that has finally been scheduled for the new 52,000-seat U.S. Bank Stadium.

Performers have not yet been announced, but a source close to the family said a wish list includes Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars and many others.

Former AEG executive (and one-time Prince manager) Randy Phillips and Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich have been contacted about possibly producing the show, which would also be filmed for a network TV special.

“Kenny and I are willing to do something for him,” Philips tells Rolling Stone, who adds the concert should be produced this year, “or you’re going to lose the moment.”
