(PCM) Prince has just announced that he will be headlining an upcoming concert called “Rally 4 Peace” which will take place on Mother’s Day, May 10, at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD. Tickets are on sale today via LiveNation.
The organizers of the event say that the idea for the concert was in the spirit of healing and meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the U.S.. The event organizers are also urging attendees to wear something grey as a tribute to lose that we have lost in all of the violence and upheaval.
In addition to announcing the upcoming concert, Prince has also revealed that he has written a new song as a tribute to the people of Baltimore, but will also address political and social issues throughout the country. An official release date for the song has not yet been revealed, but we are certain that it will coincide with the upcoming concert event.
Currently, six Baltimore police officers are facing charges for the death of Freddie Grey, who passed away in police custody last month.
