Rock the 3rd annual Benefit 2 Celebrate Life! on June 28
First Avenue Celebrated 30th Anniversary of Purple Rain in Style!
From rap to R&B, Gospel to rock – an eclectic group of Minneapolis musicians spanning three decades came together to play the iconic soundtrack to Purple Rain in its birthplace.
It was hot, it was literally down pouring "purple" rain, but folks from around the globe came to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the GRAMMY and OSCAR-winning soundtrack/movie and filled First Avenue.
This uniquely Minnesota event was the third installment of the evolving annual “Benefit 2 Celebrate Life! Bobby Z & Friends” charity concert series to raise funds and heart-health awareness for his organization, My Purple Heart, and the American Heart Association, in honor of the third anniversary of Z's near-fatal heart attack.
