The Revolution Plan To Reunite In Wake Of Prince's Death

(TeamRock Radio) Prince's former backing band The Revolution have announced they'll reunite to honor the late star. The band - who played with Prince on some of his biggest albums, including Purple Rain - say in a video message that they are getting back together for some shows.

Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, Brown Mark and Matt Fink have been in mourning since the announcement last week that Prince had died at the age of 57.

Melvoin says: "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. We want to let you know that we'll be there soon."

The Revolution split in 1986 and have reunited only briefly for various events down the years. Read more here.
