A tribute concert to honor Prince on the two-year anniversary of his death has been rescheduled because of a Timberwolves playoff game. 

The concert, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 21 at Target Center, has been rescheduled to Friday, April 20 at 8 p.m. 

It's a bit of shame since April 21 marks the two-year anniversary of Prince's death, but the show had to be moved because the NBA scheduled a playoff game between the Timberwolves and Houston Rockets for that day.

Tickets for the show will be honored. If you don't have tickets yet, they're still available through the Target Center box office, online at AXS.com or by calling 888-9-AXS-TIX. 

Here's a description on what to expect from the tribute concert. 

"The concert will feature newly remastered and never-before-released audio and video of Prince accompanied live on the Target Center stage by a super-group of musicians who performed alongside Prince throughout his legendary career. The live experience will showcase Prince in his own inimitable sound and style, highlighting the incendiary energy he brought to each performance." 

The Wolves game in place of the concert will be the first Wolves home playoff game since 2004.
