2. The Revolution at Majestic Theatre
Following the death of the group’s founder and frontman, Prince, the Revolution announced a reunion tour. The band’s tour started in April with a concert at the late singer’s estate, Paisley Park. One of the members, Lisa Coleman, told Rolling Stone that reuniting after Prince’s death was “really intense.” “Difficult. The music was mercurial. Like, we couldn’t quite grab it. I mean, we were trained to look at Prince for cues, and even if he’s wrong, he’s right. We were looking into a space and then looking at each other going, ‘What is this?’” 7 p.m. Sat. $39.50. 4140 Woodward, Detroit. (313) 883-9700.
