Prince To Perform At “Rally For Peace” In Baltimore To Help Quell Riots

Prince has announced plans to perform at a concert in Baltimore following recent unrest in the city over the death of a man who was fatally injured in police custody. A statement issued Tuesday says the pop icon will perform Sunday, on Mother’s Day, at “Rally 4 Peace,” a concert at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore. The statement says the event is meant to be “a catalyst for pause and reflection” after the recent protests and riots over Freddie Gray’s death that prompted Maryland’s governor to bring in the National Guard. Attendees of the concert are asked to wear gray. Prince will also be joined by funk-rock group 3RDEYEGIRL. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Baltimore-based youth charities. Prince is expected to debut his protest song, written last week, titled “Baltimore.” The song has not been released, but the lyrics were posted online.
