ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra will honor the late pop icon Prince with a tribute concert this fall.

Our partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that guest conductor Brent Havens will lead the orchestra for the October 9 tribute show. The symphony will perform several of Prince’s greatest hits, including “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” and others.

Prince (aka, Prince Rogers Nelson) died April 21 as a result of an accidental overdose of the pain killer fentanyl. He was 57.

The ‘Tribute to Prince’ show takes place October 9 at 7 p.m., at Powell Symphony Hall. Call 314-534-1700 or visit stlsymphony.org for ticket and other information.
