Prince’s death turned into a celebration of life his native Minneapolis, with a giant downtown block party held in front of the iconic nightclub that gave him his big start. Keep reading on how fans used his music to dance away their pain.

Prince is looking down from the heavens and loving this! With the shock of Prince’s death at age 57 still fresh on their minds, tens of thousands of his hometown fans gathered in front of the First Avenue nightclub Apr. 21 to throw a giant street party in his honor. The club was featured prominently in his 1984 film Purple Rain and so many people headed down there that several major downtown blocks were closed down for the massive crowds.

It was a turnout fit for the musical royalty that Prince was when local radio station 89.3 The Current hosted a Prince Memorial Street Party in front of Minneapolis’ famed First Avenue nightclub and tens of thousands of his loyal fans showed up to dance to his music and celebrate his amazing life.

The artist put the city’s music scene on the map in the mid 1980’s and he’s always been the Twin Cities favorite son, never forgetting his roots and living his entire life there. And his many fans there showed up to pay their respects by dancing away their sorrow that he’s gone. Stream Prince’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.

First Avenue is even holding an all-night dance party from 11 p.m to 7 a.m. for people who want to really keep the celebration and his spirit alive. Prince held court there in the early 80’s, performing there constantly before breaking big with his 1984 album and film Purple Rain, which was filmed inside the club. It is the ultimate place to be for any die-hard fan in Minneapolis on the first night without Prince reigning our world.
