Soon you’ll be able to see where the late great Prince lived and worked when this fall, his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota will be open for public tours.
The trust company that runs Elvis Presley’s Graceland announced yesterday (Aug 24th) that beginning on Oct 6th, fans will have the opportunity to tour the 65,000-square-foot complex.
Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, said in the statement, “Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on. Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his 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.”
Fans will be able to see the recording studios where Prince recorded most of his biggest hits and the soundstage where he rehearsed for tours and hosted exclusive private concerts. Fans will also be able to see his personal memorabilia including automobiles and motorcycles, musical instruments, his artwork, rare videos and hear rare music.
