(Louisville, KY)  Today, Prince Roger Nelson died at the age of 57.  There’s been so many messages sent in regards to the music superstar.

The Louisville Palace was the venue chosen to kickoff the Hit and Run Tour in March 2015.  They sent a statement on his passing:

We are deeply saddened and in shock about the news of the passing of Prince. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.

The Louisville Palace Theater was fortunate enough to host four incredible performances over the course of two days in March 2015. They were truly some of the most memorable concerts this venue has ever hosted. Each show was amazing in their own right, with an energy we have never felt inside our theater. Not only was it an amazing experience for the thousands of fans who attended, but for the entire team on the ground here in Louisville. It was two days that none of us will ever forget. All created by an amazing musician who had the ability create a community of music lovers as one.

Prince will be missed by all.
