Prince: Rally 4 Peace concert will honor Freddie Gray
Hot on the heels of Saturday’s Dance Rally 4 Peace, Prince has announced a second event to honor Freddie Gray and the people of Baltimore. This Concert 4 Peace will take place in Baltimore on Sunday, with Prince headlining Royal Farms Arena.
According to a press release, organizers said, “In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the U.S.”
As with the Rally 4 Peace, organizers urge concertgoers to wear something grey as a tribute to the 25-year-old Gray, who died after sustaining injuries while in police custody. NME reports that “several industry superstars” will join Prince at the show.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET.
