Prince would transcend exactly a week after performing two Piano And A Microphone shows at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The above photos was taken by a concert goer after Purple Rain was performed; the last song at the last show.
As the one-year anniversary of music legend Prince’s death nears, Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, the venue where he held his last large-scale concert, plans to honor The Purple One in a grand way.
The Fox Theatre will post a rolling rotation of lyrics from Prince’s iconic song “Purple Rain” on its marquee from 9 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on April 21, said Cindy Stoltz, a spokeswoman for Fox Theatre.
“The Fox Theatre will always have the bittersweet distinction of being Prince’s last stage performance,” Jamie Vosmeier, a spokesman for Fox Theatre told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The marquee tribute will give Prince fans a moment to reflect on the man, the artist and the music, which is now a part of history.”
Fans are welcome to take pictures of the marquee throughout the day, but the Fox will not have a designated area for fans who gather on April 21. (Source)
On April 14th Prince would also post his final Instagram photo:
