Prince’s estate will take over management of the late rock star’s studio complex near Minneapolis. Graceland Holdings, which runs Elvis Presley’s tourist attraction in Memphis, Tennessee, had been operating Prince’s Paisley Park in Chanhassen as a museum since October 2016.
For nearly four decades, fans of the late singer Elvis Presley have made a solemn procession past his grave at his Graceland mansion during the annual candlelight vigil commemorating his death, without paying a penny.
This year, on the 40th anniversary of the rock n’ roll icon’s death, it’s going to cost them $28.75.
Many fans are not happy.
A year after Prince died of an accidental drug overdose, his Paisley Park studio complex and home is now a museum and concert venue. Fans can now stream most of his classic albums, and a remastered “Purple Rain” album is due out in June along with two albums of unreleased music and two concert films from his vault.
Prince’s Paisley Park recording studio and home will begin operating as a permanent museum this week, following a Minnesota city council rezoning vote. The Chanhassen City Council signed off on the rezoning request Monday, but also will require a traffic study to address concerns from council members and residents about pedestrian safety, traffic and parking, the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/2eMf2VS )...
