Many of us hardcore Prince fans have been wanting a Prince and the Revolution reunion tour for years.  Even though we will be missing one very important member of the band, they're still a band, right?  We can't wait to see them live!

The Revolution will kick off their North American tour in Minneapolis on the 1 year anniversary of his death, April 21st.  According to Rollingstone.com,

The Purple Rain-era lineup of the Revolution on the tour includes guitarist Wendy Melvoin, bassist Brown Mark (Mark Brown), drummer Bobby Z (Robert Rivkin) and keyboardists Matt Fink and Lisa Coleman.

I've highlighted the Revolution shows in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois.
