With the five-year anniversary of Prince's death coming up, Paisley Park has something special planned: displaying the star's ashes for the first time in years.
On Wednesday, April 21, the Paisley Park Atrium will be open for a free visitation from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. But the chance to pay your respects may be dim, unless you've already snagged one of the advanced reservations.
The announcement was made last Tuesday, and already, all the available slots have sold out.
Now, if you're still hoping to see the ashes yourself, the waitlist is your only shot. You can sign up for it by clicking right here.
If you do manage to make it, there's a few things to know. The visitations will be timed, and all visitors will be required to wear masks per COVID-19 restrictions. Additionally, the museum is encouraging all ticketholders to use ride share services (like Uber and Lyft), as parking is limited.
There will also be no regular tours that day, so it'll be pretty much in and out for anyone who makes the trip.
As the Star Tribune notes, the ashes were on display at Paisley Park — home and recording studio of the late musician — until early 2019, when the urn was moved out of view at the request of Prince's family.
Though it may be difficult to see it if you don't already have a reservation, "fans are invited to leave flowers, mementos and other memorials next to the statue of Prince's glyph" that now sits outside Paisley Park, the Star Tribune says.
“Prince’s passing remains incomprehensible to all of us,” said Alan Seiffert, Paisley Park executive director, in a statement. “We celebrate his life and legacy every day at Paisley Park, a place that Prince wanted to share with the world. So, on this day especially, we acknowledge the incredible force and inspiration Prince is in people’s lives and open up our doors for them to pay their respects.”
Prince died at the compound on April 21, 2016, of an accidental fentanyl overdose. He was 57 years old.
