Owner description: 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!

“Do not pay full price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The first 30 minutes of the show were very entertaining. Great Prince music and costume changes. After that, the music is obscure Prince and not a great show until the last 5 minutes of the show where it ends on another high note.

Find a deal on the tickets, do not pay full price!!!!

“I would Die 4 U”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Dearly Beloved... we are gathered here today to talk about Purple Reign. I have to admit it was one of my best nights in Vegas. Being a Prince fan, I was delirious. We upgraded to VIP and sat in the front.

Performers playing Prince and Morris Day were top notch singers and entertainers.

Only con... drink prices can be a bit high. I am not even sure what it was, but we had a beer and rum for $25. So be warned. May need to ask. Unless money don't matter tonight.

“FANTASTIC SHOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

This is the best show in Downtown Las Vegas and second only to Michael Jackson's ONE. Thank you to Mike Dini and The D for a fantastic evening! The performers are extremely talented (I would come just to hear the band) and the Prince and Morris Day impersonators did all of their own singing. In addition to great music and dancing, each performer captures the essence of the star they are impersonating. The banter between 'Prince' and 'Morris Day and Jerome' was one of the highlights of the show. As a fan of both Prince and Morris Day & The Time, I was delighted to see how authentic the performers are and many times forgot I wasn't watching the actual stars themselves. Our seats were great, but there really isn't a bad seat in the house. Sexy, sassy and loaded with talent - that is what this show is. Again, many thanks to Mike Dini and The D for one of the best nights I have ever enjoyed in Las Vegas!

“Missed in LV but at Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino in Indio, CA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

SO sad that Purple Reign wasn't performing when we were in LV! We have seen them 4X at the Rock Yard at Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino, which is a free outdoor summer venue! Wow, what a show! Not only does the band do a terrific job of paying homage to the 80's Prince heyday by including a "Morris Day and the Time" cameo but they are top notch musicians with uncanny attention to each and every Prince detail! If the Purple Reign show would have been scheduled for the day we were on Freemont Street we would have PAID to see them again. To gladly stand outside in 100+ degree heat to watch Purple Reign perform in my desert is an annual pleasure!!
