According to WTOP.com and CBS News.com, music artist Prince has announced a special concert in Baltimore at the Royal Farms Arena on Mother’s Day May 10, 2015. Royal Farms Arena is located about a block away from the Baltimore Convention Center on the corner of Baltimore Street and Hopkins Place. It’s also a short distance from the Inner Harbor. Prince will be appearing with his band 3RDEYEGIRL. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday May 6) at 5:00pm at Live Nation.com.
“In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the US. As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence,” the press release states.
Live Nation says Prince recorded a song entitled “Baltimore” in response to recent civil unrest following the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died from injuries he received while in police custody.
