On March 15th, Yelp Elites came together to celebrate the life of a musician, an icon, a LEGEND – Prince! Guests enjoyed a guided VIP tour through Paisley Park which included intimate views of his personal office, studios where all of the music-making magic happened, and the venue where Purple Rain was filmed and countless concerts were performed, and much more. Guests even had the opportunity to take a photo in Studio B in front of Prince’s purple piano and to listen to clips of unreleased music! So much history was made within these walls and there is no doubt that Prince’s presence and energy could be felt surging through each room – talk about goosebumps!
At the end of the tour, the Elite Squad enjoyed a vegetarian meal made by Prince’s personal chefs consisting of four of his favorite dishes – Coconut Curry with Black Rice & Chickpeas, Bibb Lettuce Cups, Minnesota Grilled Cheese, and Cowgirl Minis. The food was so delicious it could even make a meat-lover happy!
We absolutely recommend the VIP tour to anyone who was inspired by Prince (but who wasn’t?). The exclusive insight we got to this icon’s life was invaluable and moving. Paisley Park offers many opportunities into this preserved creative space, including GA and VIP tours, Paisley Park After Dark experiences, Sunday VIP Brunch, and other special events. On April 20-23, 2017, Paisley Park will host Celebration 2017 to honor and celebrate the life and legacy of Prince, on the anniversary of his tragic passing.
