Prince is set to be honoured at a star-studded LA concert in his name later this month, titled Let's Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince.
The concert will feature several big-name artists at the 3,000 seat Los Angeles Convention Center on January 28.
Just two days after the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, 38-time Grammy nominee and seven-time winner Prince will be celebrated with his own tribute concert.
The special will be broadcast later in 2020 on the CBS Television Network and feature a line-up including Beck, Earth, Wind & Fire, Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Coldplay's Chris Martin, and Usher.
Recording Academy President and CEO Deborah Dugan said: "With his subversive attitude and commanding nature, he straddled musical genres and created electrifying music that was bursting with character.
"He continues to serve as an inspirational icon for artists and fans worldwide."
Additional performers will be announced in the coming days, with the artists paying tribute to Prince's "unprecedented influence on music".
The event also promises a "historic joint performance by several of Prince's most celebrated musical friends and collaborators, including Grammy Award-winning band the Revolution, past Grammy Award nominee Sheila E., and Prince-formed funk band Morris Day And The Time".
Fans hoping to attend the concert will have to fork out between $360.00 - $2,500.00 plus ticket costs. Good luck!
