A new show celebrating the music of Prince will visit Scarborough Spa’s Theatre in 2017. Purple Rain - A Celebration of Prince, will visit the South Bay venue on Friday December 1 2017.

Due to demand, the Scarborough Spa date is part of a second extension to the show’s UK tour which has seen the show become one of the country’s most in demand shows.

Featuring an eight-piece live band performing hits, led by Jimi Love as Prince, fans of The Purple One can expect to see, hear and feel all of the hits from one of the most loved Artists of all time including 1999, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain, Kiss, Diamonds And Pearls, U Got The Look, When Doves Cry, Cream and I Wanna Be Your Lover.

Jo Ager, Scarborough Spa’s general manager, said: “This show has been selling out much bigger venues in cities across the country so the Spa Theatre will be one of the more intimate venues on the tour and tickets will be a great Christmas present for any fan of Prince.

Tickets for Purple Rain: A Celebration of Prince priced at £22.50 go on sale at 9am on Friday October 28 and subscribers to Scarborough Spa’s weekly e-newsletter can get priority booking from Wednesday October 26.
