Let’s go CRAZY and get ready to party like it’s 1999 when New Power Generation brings the final night of their first major US tour to Milwaukee!

The reunion of former members of the New Power Generation (NPG) – including a number of those in the original configuration – was born out of the official Prince Tribute concert in October 2016.  The longest-running member of the NPG, keyboardist Morris Hayes, who also served as Prince’s Musical Director for many years, was tapped to do the same job for the official tribute concert held in honor of the legendary artist.  
Hayes brought many of the original band members back together to serve as the house band (where they were joined by other NPG alumni throughout the night) for the epic musical celebration and the feedback from the fans was that the official tribute concert was both exhilarating and healing. “Exactly what we needed” was a typical comment.  Given the overwhelming response to that historic event, NPG met with one of Prince’s former managers to discuss an official reunion in order to bring a live celebration of Prince and his music to ‘fams’ throughout the world.  Their intent: to honor their boss, their mentor and his music.  Thus, the birth of the NPG’s tour featuring the music of Prince was underway.  The band has since joined forces with other Prince alumni and world class artists to perform their own tribute concerts to their legendary mentor and brother.    

 
“New Power Generation are not a tribute band, they have a far higher pedigree….To see them play their celebration of their friend’s music is more of a spiritual experience. It almost feels like they are creating a musical seance that will somehow summon his spirit to imbue the various vocalists with a little of the magic dust that Prince sprinkled so that old audiences and new audiences can appreciate the music they loved and love just one more time. They create a glimpse of the afterworld, a world of never ending happiness where you can see the sun, day or night. They invite us to go crazy one more time.  it is a very unique musical experience, a chance to party like it’s 1999 in [2020]: I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
