Description: From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late night T.V...
From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late night T.V., Purple Reign has risen to international acclaim and recognition as the world’s #1 Prince Tribute. On November 17, 2008 the group became the 1st ever tribute/impersonator act to appear as the musical guest on Late Show with David Letterman. That show was chosen by CBS and Late Show to ring in the New Year and re-aired January 1st, 2009 at 12:15am (New Years Eve) less than 45 days later, making it the 1st musical performance of 2009 on Letterman. ‘09 also saw Purple Reign crowned "Best Tribute Act" by the 28th annual Las Vegas Review Journal Poll, winning 2 awards by both the staff and readers. Purple Reign captures the imagination and seamlessly re-creates the blistering performances and raw energy of Prince in his prime and returns you to the era that made "The Artist" an international superstar. Featuring a tribute Morris Day and The Time, this show is a must see for Purple Rain movie fans and all live music fans alike!

This show was absolutely phenomenal! So much energy! I love the opening, "Erotic City", that was so Prince, then followed up with "Controversy". I was thrilled by the music, singing and dancing the entire show...and JASON TENNER is...SO HOT!!!!!! OH, the guitar player was AWESOME! After this show, I did not want to seen another show in Vegas!

Purple Reign Prince Tribute Show was fantastic. Jason Tenner as Prince was great and so looks a lot like Prince. We had VIP seating and front row seats. Very intimate theatre. Justin and Morris were great too. Definite a must to go see when you are in Vegas

Second time seeing Purple Reign. The first time was at Hooters, and now this time at the Westgate.The show was great, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Prince. We sat front row on the left side of the stage and the seats seemed nice until the show started, to close to see everything. The second row would... More

May 3 Go for the VIP seats which brings you closer to the action and dialogue. The entire show was a riotous experience with the major performer, Jason Tenner, as a dead-on replica and study of Prince, working his heart and butt off. Besides the hard-working musicians (4), especially the rhythm guitarist, I got a kick out of the slapstick... More

This was worth every penny. These were top shelf talented performers. I felt like i was really watching Prince!!! They even took requests! Check the day of ticket vendors on the strip for discounted tickets!

My husband took me to this show last night and it blew me away! Prince, Morris and Jerome were spot on! Made you feel like you were IN the movie Purple Reign. The band was fantastic and the costumes were fabulous! Jason Tenner (as Prince) could wail on the guitar, had amazing vocals, dance moves and was SEXY beyond belief!... More

The show was amazing!! Last time I watched it, it was still over at the Boardwalk and it was a phenomenal show then but now that its been revamped and moved over to the West Gate it just got better. The show featured Prince, Morris Day, and Jerome impersonators that nailed it 100%!! They even have a bit of comedy... More

I would have easily paid twice to see this show! The music and singing were spot on and the venue, although small was very good. The only negative was that they had one person behind the bar and they needed 2 or 3.

We saw this show at the Westgate. We bought tickets at one of the Tickets Tonight booths on the strip. We paid 35.00 which was about a $20 savings off box office price. The show was very entertaining and the music was spot on. The guy that played Prince was great and humorous at times. Morris Day and Jerome made... More

It was okay. The one thing that i did not like was the theater it was small and out dated. The show was fun and entertaining. They do a good job interpreting purple rain and atmosphere was fun. All and all it was good.
