Andrew De Silva from R&B sensation CDB and some of Australia’s finest touring stars lead a Purple Revolution to celebrate the life and music of Prince.

It doesn’t get more legendary than the music of Prince. When the iconic performer passed away in 2016, the world mourned the loss of the multi-instrumentalist who was ahead of his time musically.

For Australian musician Andrew De Silva, this loss was keenly felt. Undeniably something that was meant to be, Purple Revolution had their first show only a couple of weeks before Prince passed away.

The Purple Revolution pays homage in a party fashion – after all, Prince-penned some of the best songs in music history. With tracks such as Little Red Corvette, 1999, Cream, Diamonds & Pearls, I Wanna Be Your Lover and the iconic Purple Rain, audiences are guaranteed to be on their feet from start to finish. Prince’s hits smashed the Billboard Charts and created memories for generations – now Purple Revolution: A Tribute to Prince will endeavor to keep those memories alive.

Whether you were a fan of Prince’s irrevocable style, or only discovered his catalog after his passing, Purple Revolution is a show for all to enjoy. Jam-packed with hits, the show features guitar virtuoso Simon Hosford (Men At Work, Tommy Emmanuel), Paolo Cecchinelli (Kate Ceberano, Vanessa Amorosi), Rod Bustos (Kate Ceberano, Vanessa Amorosi) and drummer Johnny Salerno (Belinda Carlisle, Jon Stevens).

When it comes to an artist performing Prince’s material, then Andrew De Silva is confidently placed to do so. There is little he can’t do – from fronting R&B supergroup CDB in the 1990s, to pub rock icons Boom Crash Opera nowadays, Andrew is also an established singer-songwriter within his own right, winning the 2012 Australia’s Got Talent for his incredible vocal style.

Humble, yet with a wealth of experience in the industry, Andrew is a seasoned performer. Opening for megastars like Mariah Carey (Etihad Stadium 2013), Boys II Men (2012) and for Shaggy during his national tour (2015). Andrew’s versatility has recently seen him play the lead role in the hit production “Let’s Get It On” (The Life & Music Of Marvin Gaye).

“Relive the music of Prince with one of Australia’s best talents”

“It’s a deliciously lithe soul number, whelmed by Andrew’s superb vocal that taps the falsetto in his bag of tricks and the layering of the vocals is pretty sublime.”

Andrew seems to have done it all & his live shows are not to be missed.
