New exhibition gives fans chance to "feel and see" Prince

The exhibition will feature items and instruments from Prince's private estate and iconic costumes from his career.

The exhibition will last for 21 days, the same length as the 21 record-breaking, sold-out concerts that Prince played at The O2 in August and September 2007 - a record that still remains today.

Numerous items have come from Paisley Park, Prince's famous Minnesota private estate.

The Purple Rain singer passed away in April 2016 at the age of 57 from a fentanyl overdose, leaving behind a vast collection of unreleased recordings and music videos.

All the exhibits will be coming from Paisley Park, which since his death has become a mausoleum-cum-museum to the star, including his ashes in a crystal-studded model of the building.

Memorable stage outfits from legendary tours, including Purple Rain in 1984 and LoveSexy in 1988, will go on display alongside his gold and diamond ear clips, his "third eye" sunglasses, a diamond-encrusted cane, and the Gibson L65 he played during his first television appearance on American Bandstand in 1980.

"Through this exhibition, we are expanding his dream to share with a wider audience, and allow visitors to The O2 in London to experience all his greatness through the artefacts direct from his Paisley Park Archives".

"A hologram could be done as long as it is of excellent quality", Nelson said of a Prince hologram. "I love the guitars".

Nelson said the My Name Is Prince exhibition, which will run at The O2 in London for just three weeks, will give fans an opportunity to "feel and see" the musician. I love, love, love the clothes, and the shoes!

Tickets are about $40 (£25) and go on sale this Friday over here.
