Paisley Park, Home of Prince, Opens for Public Tours in October
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Paisley Park, the private estate and studio complex of the late rock superstar Prince, will open for public tours starting Oct. 6. Bremer Trust, which is overseeing Prince's estate, announced the daily tours Wednesday. Its news release said millions of Prince fans will get the chance to tour the 65,000-square-foot complex in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen, where Prince died of a painkiller overdose in April. Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, says in the statement that opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on. The plan submitted to the city of Chanhassen says the tours will include studios where Prince recorded, produced and mixed most of his biggest hits. Also featured will be thousands of artifacts from his personal archives. Tickets go on sale Friday.
