The private estate and studio complex of Prince in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen, Minn., will open for daily public tours beginning Oct. 6, the AP reports.
Bremer Trust, which is overseeing Prince’s estate, announced plans today to open the 65,000-square-foot Paisley Park complex.
In the announcement, Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson said: “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.”
Graceland Holdings, which has overseen Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis since 1982, will run the tours.
“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,” the AP reports. “Tickets go on sale online Friday at 2 p.m. Central time.”
