PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999 WITH PURPLE REIGN: A TRIBUTE TO PRINCE AT THE DIAMOND CENTER ON APRIL 15

TUCSON, Ariz. – The world’s No. 1 Prince tribute band, Purple Reign, is performing at Desert Diamond Casino’s Diamond Center on April 15, 2017. Tickets start at $15 and go on sale Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017 at 10am through Star Tickets and the Rewards Center. The show gets underway at 8pm; doors open at 7pm.

From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late night T.V., Purple Reign has risen to international acclaim and recognition as the world’s No. 1 Prince Tribute. On November 17, 2008 the group became the 1st ever tribute/impersonator act to appear as the musical guest on Late Show with David Letterman. That show was chosen by CBS and Late Show to ring in the New Year and re-aired January 1st, 2009 at 12:15am (New Years Eve) less than 45 days later, making it the 1st musical performance of 2009 on Letterman. ‘09 also saw Purple Reign crowned “Best Tribute Act” by the 28th annual Las Vegas Review Journal Poll, winning 2 awards by both the staff and readers. Most recently the show won “Best Impersonator” in the 2014 LVRJ poll, and was chosen as the season 3 opener for AXStv’s The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.

Purple Reign captures the imagination and seamlessly re-creates the blistering performances and raw energy of Prince in his prime and returns you to the era that made “The Artist” an international superstar. Featuring a tribute Morris Day and The Time, this show is a must see for “Purple Rain” movie fans and all live music fans alike!

Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “Desert Diamond Casino invites you to ‘go crazy’ on April 15 at the Diamond Center with the No. 1 Prince tribute band, Purple Reign!”
