Beck, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters and More Slated for a Prince Tribute

Prince’s legacy continues to live on, even as we roll into 2020. And to honor the icon, the Grammys are recruiting several superstars to pay homage to The Purple One in a new special, Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince. Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince will tape at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 28th, two days after Keys hosts the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. The special will air on CBS.

The star-studded tribute will feature performances from Beck, Common, Gary Clark Jr., Earth, Wind & Fire, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., the Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs, Juanes, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Mavis Staples, St. Vincent, and Usher. The concert will also feature a joint performance from several of Prince’s most beloved musical friends and collaborators, including his band the Revolution, Sheila E. and Morris Day and The Time.

“One of the true joys of producing the GRAMMY Awards is both working with and being able to tribute your heroes, and Prince gave me the opportunity of doing both,” longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who will serve as executive producer of the special, said in a statement. “His Grammy appearances, though few, were historic, and it’s with mixed feelings that we approach this opportunity to celebrate the amazing legacy he left us. We’ve gathered a remarkable collection of artists across genres and across generations to salute one of music’s truly singular iconic writer/performers, and believe me, it’s a tall order to do him justice.”

GRAMMY® Award-winning duo The Chainsmokers will perform Wednesday, January 29, and GRAMMY® Award-nominated breakout star Lizzo will perform Thursday, January 30, both at The Fillmore Miami Beach at The Jackie Gleason Theater.

“In a city known for big events, Pandora and SiriusXM will proudly present two of the biggest, can’t-miss shows of the week in our Opening Drive Super Concert Series. We are very excited to bring these stellar artists to both our live audiences in Miami Beach and to millions of listeners nationwide,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “The Chainsmokers and Lizzo are at the top of their game. These are the one-of-a-kind experiences and performances that our listeners love and we at Pandora and SiriusXM love to deliver.”

Since their breakthrough in 2014, GRAMMY® Award-winning duo The Chainsmokers have evolved into a dominating musical force with a diverse repertoire of songs leading them to become one of music’s hottest recording artists. Collaborations with artists including Halsey, Coldplay, Bebe Rexha and others have landed them five Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 singles, close to 3 billion streams on Pandora and numerous appearances on the Pandora Top Spins chart.

Lizzo will be making her first public performance at the SiriusXM Pandora stage following the 2020 GRAMMY® Awards where she leads with eight nominations including the highly coveted Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. Her breakthrough hit “Truth Hurts” had a Hot Streak on the Pandora Top Spins chart where it appeared for 19 straight weeks while her latest “Good As Hell” is currently sitting in the Top 5.
