Stevie Wonder tops Prince tribute show lineup

Stevie Wonder and members of Prince’s inner circle will be highlights of a family-sanctioned tribute concert in the US on October 13.

Prince’s family originally planned to hold the show at the new NFL stadium in his home town of Minneapolis.

However, organisers have announced that it will be at the smaller Xcel Energy Centre in St Paul, Minnesota.

The lineup also includes Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E Fresh, Luke James, Bilal and Mint Condition.

Prince’s inner circle will be represented by Morris Day & The Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield.

The New Power Generation led by Morris Hayes, along with members of 3rdeyegirl, will also perform.
