This is going to be super cool.  Think about all of the bands, acts and famous people that either got their start or have performed at First Ave in Minneapolis.

Of course, the first person we all probably think of is Prince.  And yes- there will be a special display that is all related to Prince, including the suit that he wore in Purple Rain.  Yes, that one, the purple one.  Plus a lot of other stuff that relates to Prince, things that we all expect to see, and some stuff that we didn't necessarily expect.

There will also be a lot of things from other events that we have seen or heard of happening that all relate to First Avenue.

The exhibit will begin on Saturday and will run for about a year.  There will be plenty of time for you to make it to Minneapolis to see the exhibit.
