Five years since the world lost Prince Rogers Nelson, the creative musician’s home will be open to the public.
On April 21, the fifth anniversary of Prince’s passing, the home and studio that he lived in, Paisley Park, will be open to fans. Admission is complimentary as long as reservations are made in advance.
“Prince’s passing remains incomprehensible to all of us,” said Alan Seiffert, Paisley Park executive director, in a written statement. “We celebrate his life and legacy every day at Paisley Park, a place that Prince wanted to share with the world. So, on this day especially, we acknowledge the incredible force and inspiration Prince is in people’s lives and open up our doors for them to pay their respects.”
Paisley Park, which is located in Chanhassen, MN, posted the information on its Twitter account.
