From humble beginnings in small UNLV college clubs to late night TV, Purple Reign has risen to international acclaim and recognition as the world’s #1 Prince Tribute. On November 17, 2008, the group became the first-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 1, 2009 at 12:15am (New Years Eve) less than 45 days later, making it the first musical performance of 2009 on Letterman. 2009 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 to Morris Day and The Time, this show is a must see for "Purple Rain” movie fans and all live music fans alike.
