The Revolution's Tour Bus Playlist Featuring Guns 'N Roses, Public Enemy, Chromeo

Meet the key people behind Prince’s music.

By Deeba Abrishamchi - Jul 11, 2018
Prince’s backing band, The Revolution, are currently on tour performing iconic songs and helping prince’s memory live on. They shared their tour bus playlist filled with songs from a wide array of genres that give us a glimpse into what sounds Prince and his band gained influence from, appreciate, and listen/listened to while tour. Meet the key people behind Prince’s music.

The Revolution has made it their mission to celebrate the life and legacy of The Purple One. Prince’s talented backing band, made up of Lisa Coleman, Wendy Melvoin, Bobby Z, Brownmark, and Bobby Z, is back on tour, performing songs like “Purple Rain” and “Let’s Go Crazy” to pay tribute to the late legend.

We got to chat with the five gifted members of the Revolution, who shared the tunes they keep on loop while on the road. Ranging from legends like Led Zeppelin to power vocalists like Janelle Monae, this playlist will inspire you, take you back, and might even have you singing at the top of your lungs.

To witness the revolutionary five-piece on tour, make sure to track them on Bandsintown!
