It took seven months of planning, but The Revolution is officially headed to the Tabernacle.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 9 via (a pre-sale starts at 10 Nov. 8 with the code BEATS) for $35-$65. Floor tickets are general admission and all balconies are reserved seating.

In April, The Revolution performed at Celebration 2017 at Paisley Park to commemorate the first anniversary of Prince’s death.
