PURPLE REIGN, PURPLE REIGN:  AWARD-WINNING PRINCE TRIBUTE BAND STOPPING BY RIVERS CASINO PITTSBURGH THIS DECEMBER

 

PITTSBURGH — Sept. 23, 2022 — Prince fans will love Purple Reign, the world’s No.1 Prince tribute band, when it performs at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh in December. Guests will enjoy Prince’s biggest hits including “Little Red Corvette,” “Raspberry Beret,” “When Doves Cry” and many more. The acclaimed band brings its high-energy show to The Event Center on Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $19.

Purple Reign captures the imagination and seamlessly recreates the blistering performances and raw energy of Prince in his prime and returns you to the era that made the artist an international superstar. Featuring a tribute to Morris Day and The Time, this show is a must-see for “Purple Rain” movie fans and all live music fans alike.

“Prince is a true icon. We’re thrilled to welcome Purple Reign here for a night of his greatest hits,” said Shannon Redmond, vice president of marketing at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “Our guests are in for a night of hits and partying like it’s 1999 all over again!”

From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late-night television appearances, Purple Reign has risen to international fame and recognition as the world’s No. 1 Prince tribute. On Nov. 17, 2008, the group became the first ever tribute/impersonator act to appear as the musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman.

In 2009, Purple Reign was crowned “Best Tribute Act” by the 28th annual Las Vegas Review-Journal poll, winning two awards from both the staff and readers. The show also won “Best Impersonator” in the 2014 LVRJ poll, and was chosen as the season-three opener for AXS TV’s The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.

Tickets to see Purple Reign can be purchased inside Rivers Casino or at RiversCasino.com/Pittsburgh.
