According to reports, “The concerts will feature the Wolf Trap Orchestra, a live band and several vocalists performing classic songs and deep cuts from across Prince’s vast catalog. Questlove helped curate the setlist and the orchestral arrangements, while the Prince estate provided photos and videos to be used in the production.”
