Summary

Prince's 80s band returns -- for only a limited four show tour.  Chicago makes the list!

What They Say

This is a talented bunch -- albeit without The Kid.

What We Say

The Revolution rose to international fame and prominence in the mid 1980s with Purple Rain, a rock operatic project centered around Prince that catapulted him and the group to instant stardom. The film was a box office smash hit, while the soundtrack is regarded by many as one of the greatest albums of all time. After the summer of 1985, The Revolution soon found themselves to be a global phenomenon, following the release of the film and touring throughout the United States, Europe and Japan.
