Minneapolis music great André Cymone is booked to play a much-anticipated solo show this Friday, July 28 at the Turf Club. He’s now added another weekend performance: a free show at the FLOW Northside Arts Crawl. Cymone’s performance will take place at 5:45 p.m. this Saturday, July 29 at North High Field, 1801 Fremont Ave. N.

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Cymone, who grew up in North Minneapolis with another local artist whose name you might recognize: Prince. Bonding as kids over their shared love of music, Cymone and Prince played together in a band known as Grand Central. When tensions arose between Prince and his parents, he moved into Cymone’s house and lived there for a substantial amount of his adolescence. Cymone went on to a successful solo career, which includes the new album 1969.

The FLOW Northside Arts Crawl is a three-day event combining visual arts, music, and other activities. For a complete schedule, see northmpls.org.

    This makes my heart so glad. André puts his music where his mouth is.. He has been giving in so many ways… Helping Prince fans grieve and uplifting us by sharing his memories and playing Prince’s music for us even though he was grieving himself.. He is true to his political ideology, volunteering his time and musical talent to the causes he holds dear.. And now playing a free concert in his hometown neighborhood! I couldn’t be prouder to be an André Cymone fan!! 💜✌🎶
