Prince fans to mark anniversary of music superstar's death

So far in 2017, it is the largest seller with 56,000 copies, nearly double that of Purple Rain (29,000).

Gov. Mark Dayton has declared Friday as "Prince Day" across Minnesota to honor the legacy of the homegrown music legend, who died April 21st of past year of an accidental painkiller overdose. In subsequent years, Prince hosted similar immersive fan experiences at Paisley Park, first in 2001 with Prince: A Celebration "The Rainbow Children" and in 2002 with Xenophobia.

The Revolution performs Friday at Paisley Park in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen on the anniversary of Prince's death and then tours until July 15 in Seattle.

Prince sold 2.23 million albums a year ago in the United States, just above English balladeer Adele - whose blockbuster album "25" came out in late 2015 - at 2.21 million, Nielsen Music said.

Also, the Minnesota Historical Center is staging a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including his iconic "Purple Rain" suit. When Prince died past year, fans around the world were shocked and photos of him rocked the social media world.

Garcia, who was married to Prince from 1996 to 2000 and had a son with the singer who died a week after his birth, sat for an interview with Ashleigh Banfield of HLN's "Primetime Justice" to confirm that the singer had in fact made out a will.

Prince's siblings, who are on track to inherit an estate valued around $200 million, are hosting an all-night dance party in the Minneapolis suburb of Golden Valley with Dez Dickerson, Apollonia Kotero, Andre Cymone and others. She wore a pendant of Prince's symbol, which she had also spray-painted in black along the legs of her white trousers.

A memorial street party outside the club is also on tap for Saturday. Prince performed it for record executives when he first signed with Warner Bros. Paul area landmarks are scheduled to be bathed in purple light after sundown and include U.S. Bank Stadium, IDS Center, I-35W Bridge, Hennepin County Lowry Avenue Bridge, and Target Field.
