The NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves will cap off their final Prince-inspired “City Edition” game by offering fans an exclusive seven-inch vinyl version of “Rock and Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives in Minneapolis).”
All attendees to the team’s Friday, April 5th game versus the Miami Heat will receive a collector’s edition 7″ of the track, which originally appeared as the B-side to “Gold,” a single from the late Minneapolis native’s 1995 LP, The Gold Experience.
Prince’s hometown team have been promoting the Purple One’s ties to Minneapolis with their special City Edition nights, during which they wear purple jerseys, and feature artists associated with Prince, such as Sheila E and Morris Day, performing during halftime. The team has yet to announce which musical act will perform during halftime at the game on April 5th.
