John Mayer will not be part of the Prince tribute show taking place on Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center after all.
Star Tribune cites only a scheduling change for his absence.
John Mayer shared the following after Prince’s passing:
RIP Prince…What a huge loss. What a pure, enormous talent. TALENT. He inspired a generation of musicians to strive for greatness above anything else. His fame was always infused with his talent. And that talent was his freedom, it was his constant reason. That’s what an icon is. Only now when you turn around and (sadly) look at his career from his last living day and over the span of his life can you see what he created. It all lines up. It’s perfection. Guitar players (and all musicians) everywhere will be picking up a much heavier instrument today.
The rest of the line-up currently includes Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, Morris Day & the Time, Judith Hill, ex-Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, dancer Mayte Garcia, who was Prince’s first wife, and many more.
