The Grammys have announced that they will be hosting a tribute concert for Prince following the award ceremony.

The event is named Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince and so far, the lineup for the tribute gig is looking incredible. The likes of Foo Fighters, Beck, and Alicia Keys are set to play on the big night.

Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan said in a statement: “Prince. The Purple One. His Royal Badness — regardless of how you identify him, he is indisputably one of the greatest musical virtuosos of all time.”

“With his subversive attitude and commanding nature, he straddled musical genres and created electrifying music that was bursting with character. He continues to serve as an inspirational icon for artists and fans worldwide, and we are so honored to pay tribute to his legacy,” she added.

The lineup will also include several Prince collaborators. Common, H.E.R., Earth, Wind & Fire, St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, Chris Martin, Gary Clark, Jr., and Juanes are also on the bill.
