Prince‘s iconic band The Revolution are heading overseas for their first European tour in 33 years. The group will begin their journey on February 8, 2019, in Copenhagen, Denmark, and continue on to Amsterdam, Paris and London. 

The Revolution also are set to resume their U.S. tour this year on June 9 at the Wichita River Festival in Wichita, Kansas. Band members Bobby Z, Lisa Coleman, Matt Fink, Wendy Melvoin and Brownmark decided to reunite in April of last year to perform music they helped create with Prince.

Fink says in an official statement, “We can’t wait to perform for our fans in cities we missed on The Revolution reunion tour last year and we’re also looking forward to returning to some of the towns where we’ve already performed.” 

Bobby Z adds, “Prince said that music is medicine. People need it, and we need it. In honor of him, we’ll give it everything we’ve got.”
