While countless artists have already paid tribute to Prince in their own ways, the Purple One’s family will host an official tribute concert in his hometown of Minneapolis.

The concert will be held on Oct. 13 at the U.S. Bank Stadium, according to a statement released to The Associated Press. Performers will be announced on a rolling basis, and tickets will go on sale in August.

“We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince’s life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis,” the statement reads. “We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible.”

Prince died on April 21 of a drug overdose.
