Singer Prince's Private Estate and Studio Open To Public

Posted by Ando, 28 Aug 16

Six months after the death of the infamous singer Prince, the trust company managing his estate announced that Prince's private estate and studio complex, Paisley Park, will open to the public from 6 October. People will now have access to Paisley Park for daily public tours. All they are waiting is for the city to approve the plan and the planning commission hearing has been scheduled for 20 September.

"Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do," said Tyka Nelson, Prince's sister. "Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during [Prince's] lifetime. Now, fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince's world for the first time as we open the doors to this incredible place."

The tickets for the tour will cost $38.50 for the 70-minute tour. There will also be VIP tours for small groups. The tours will include "studios where Prince recorded and mixed his songs, and the soundstage where he rehearsed for tours and hosted private concerts."

The trust company managing the project is the same one managing Elvis Presley's Graceland. Since Presley died in 1977, over 20 million people have visited Graceland and the numbers are now at 600,000 visitors annually.

The legendary musician died in April in 65,000 square-foot complex in Minneapolis, from an overdose of the painkiller fentanyl. According to the investigators, the overdose was accidental. Apparently, his pills had been mislabeled as hydrocodone, a weaker type of opioid. He died at 57.
