Prince worked so well in so many different styles for so long that no one artist could do him justice. The Grammys are aware of this, enlisting a wide swath of artists to dedicate a tribute performance to the overstuffed life of the Purple One.
Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince will go down two days after the Grammys on January 28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. This tribute to the artist formerly known as Prince is being curated by Prince’s long-time co-conspirator and drummer Sheila E., who will also lead the house band as the show cycles through various artists and eras.
“I was very honored to be able to do this for so many reasons, but to be able to help celebrate the life of a dear friend and be a part of this and be musical director is awesome,” Sheila E. said in an interview with Rolling Stone.
In addition to Sheila E., several other Prince associates will perform. Morris Day and The Time, Prince’s backing band The Revolution, and Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles will all play. Plenty of artists from outside of the Prince realm will also take a chance to pay tribute. Beck, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., Earth, Wind & Fire, Common, St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, Gary Clark, Jr., Chris Martin, and Juanes will all pay respects to His Royal Badness.
“Sometimes you worry about these things, because when an artist is so iconic, so individualistic and so unique, you get a little bit nervous about having people interpret their work,” producer Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone. “But I think, if anything, based on what we’ve done with these past shows, either we’ve gotten a little foolhardy to think that we could do Prince, or we’ve gotten confident that there are artists out there who fit; who will be faithful to what he did and reverent enough not to fuck around with him.”
