An official tribute concert to honor Prince will be held in October, Prince's sister Tyka Nelson confirmed on Facebook Thursday.

The Associated Press initially reported the Oct. 13 concert at U.S. Bank Stadium, noting performers will be announced "on a rolling basis."

Prince's family members have said since the star's April 21 overdose death that they were working on a public memorial service to remember him. At the time, they were aiming for a show in August.

In the family's statement to the AP, they said there is "no better place to do it than his hometown of Minneapolis."

This is one of many tributes to Prince that has been planned since his death. Among them: Members of the Revolution will be hosting tribute shows in early September at First Avenue.

Last week, Nelson wrote on Facebook the family is holding a private family memorial for Prince on Aug. 12, and then a friends memorial on Aug. 13, which will be invitation only.
