Prince’s Former Band The Revolution to Reunite for ‘Some Shows’ (Video)

”We have decided, after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows,“ Wendy Melvoin says

Prince may be gone forever but his former band, The Revolution, may soon be back on the road.

The rock band, which was formed in Minneapolis in 1979 by Prince and disbanded 1986, announced that they plan to do a reunion tour in honor the “Little Red Corvette” singer, who died Thursday at age 57.

Original members Bobby Z., Matt Funk, Brown Mark, Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman will all be involved.

“We have decided, after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows,” Melvoin said in a video posted to Mark’s Facebook page on Tuesday, which shows the whole band sitting on a couch.

The Revolution are best known as the backup band from the “Purple Rain” film and album, as well as the album “1999.”

The group officially broke up after the “Hit n Run — Parade Tour,” which supported “Parade,” the soundtrack for “Under the Cherry Moon.”
