Prince's former band The Revolution to reunite

Prince's former band are reuniting to honour the late star.

The Revolution - which includes Bobby Z., Brown Mark, Matt Fink, Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman - have announced plans for some live shows to remember the 'Raspberry Beret' hitmaker, who died on Thursday (21.04.16).

In a video posted on Brown's Facebook, Wendy said: "We have decided, after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince, that we would like to come out and do some shows."

The group - who were formed in 1979 by Prince as his backing band and played on his critically-acclaimed 'Purple Rain' album - have been together in Minnesota to remember the late singer, TMZ reports.

Meanwhile, 3RDEYEGIRL - who acted as the backing band for Prince until his death - have also been leaving their tributes for the star on social media.

Donna Grantis wrote: "At the centre of it all, was Prince: the greatest musician of all time, the most phenomenal guitar player on the planet, my mentor, bandmate and friend. He taught us about music, artistry, life, love, greatness, conviction, community and spirituality. He brought out the best in all of us."
