See you in Minnesota! Prince's estate has formally announced the lineup for "Prince: The Official Prince Tribute — A Celebration of Life & Music," taking place at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on October 13.

"We are excited for the opportunity to bring everyone together for the official family celebration of Prince's life, music and legacy, and there is no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis," Prince's family said previously in a statement released in July. "We are honored by the artists who will pay tribute and grateful to those that have worked so hard to make this celebration possible."

No tribute is complete without Stevie Wonder, but they also lined up greats Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, and Doug E. Fresh. Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Luke James, Bilal, and Mint Condition, as well as Prince-connected acts Morris Day & the Time, Judith Hill, Liv Warfield, the New Power Generation led by Morris Hayes, and 3rdEyeGirl are also scheduled to

Prince, 57, died April 21 of a reported painkiller overdose. While the Billboard Music Awards had a Madonna-led tribute that was widely panned (by everyone but Questlove), and the 2016 BET Awards held tributes throughout the show, the concert on October 13 is expected to raise more than $1 million for the artist's estate.

Tickets go on sale Monday (September 19) at the Xcel Center box office and on ticketmaster.com. Prices haven’t been announced yet, but are reported to start at $19.99.
