The Third Ear – White/Purple Night – A Tribute to Prince

Prince – one of the most prominent musicians of our generation – died on April 21st this year. His death was no doubt premature, but he left behind an amazing musical legacy of unforgettable hits, album masterpieces, and a wealth of other music he recorded that is probably hidden somewhere at his Paisley Park estate. Apart from his ability to play a wide variety of instruments, Prince was considered a guitar legend and an outstanding performer, whose concerts left an indelible impression on the audience.

For one night, and one night only, the Third Ear will be painted in purple as a tribute to this celebrated musician, including a number of live performances, films starring Prince, and more.

* White Night at Third Ear’s music department: discounts and special offers between 21:00 and midnight.

Doors open at 22:00. Tickets: NIS 35, advance sale; NIS 45 on the night of the event; NIS 20, Digitel cardholders
