This fall, Brooklynites will have the chance to celebrate the late icon, his life and legacy, in a truly grand way.

Live Nation Entertainment (NYSE: LYV) is the world's leading live entertainment company comprised of global market leaders: Ticketmaster, Live Nation Concerts, and Live Nation Media & Sponsorship. This is the first major tour the estate has approved, as they've been particularly selective about licensing and streaming agreements.

4U will present the music of Prince like never before, with a full orchestra.

A massive list of dates has already been announced for "4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince", with more promised to come for the remainder of 2018 and in 2019.

The concerts have been co-curated by The Roots' Questlove. "We look forward to fans hearing the new music and experiencing the genius of Prince", said Troy Carter, the entertainment adviser of Prince's estate.

Tickets for "4U" will go on sale Friday, May 25 at 10 a.m. 4U will draw from Prince's singular and extensive music catalog, highlighting many of his hits that captivated generations of fans, alongside lesser known gems.

Prince's estate provided photos and videos that are likely to be used in the production, according to Rolling Stone.
