Hundreds will march the streets in honor of the legend.
Down south in New Orleans, fans have already organized a second line for Prince on Facebook on Monday. The funeral march is set to be filled with mourners clad in purple, marching bands, and a release of white doves just as the sun’s setting on the historic Treme neighborhood. The event has drawn the interest of over 1,000, with 940 people as of this writing clicking that “attending” button.
Such a celebration of life is sure to draw innumerable gorgeous photos, tweets, and vines, as with a recent second line celebrating the life of David Bowie that was organized by Arcade Fire. As with Bowie’s New Orleans memorial, Prince’s will end with music. DJ Captain Charles is set to spin classics from the Purple One late into the night.
