An exhibition at The O2 in London has just opened to celebrate the legacy and artistry of the late musician, Prince.
The exhibition has been open to the public for only a few days now and already the demand for tickets have allowed organisers to extend its duration. Initially it was only supposed to run for three weeks but has now been extended out to early January next year.
This exhibition is a place for those die hard fans and those casual fans who otherwise might not be able to make it along to Paisley Park, the singers recording house. Paisley Park was opened as a museum to the public last year.
Aptly titled ‘My Name Is Prince’ the exhibition will include hundreds of never-before-seen items, including his cloud suit from the “Raspberry Beret” video and the diamond studded cane from Prince’s 2015 tour. The artifacts will have a focus on the past several decades and the items will include handwritten lyrics, clothing and his musical instruments.
Prince’s siblings were able to make it to The O2 for the opening and expressed that he loved to share his work and his life with his fans. It will be a place for fans to go along to and remember everything they loved about Prince. There are plans for the exhibition to go to other cities but nothing is finalised yet.
