BILOXI -- Prince may be gone, but his music will resound at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi Aug. 26 when the resort hosts "Purple Reign -- The Prince Tribute Show."

Brought to Biloxi by promoter Live Nation, the show will begin at 8 p.m.

Jason Tenner is the front man for Purple Reign, according to the tribute band's website. The band was the first tribute/impersonator act to appear as the musical guest on the Late Show with David Letterman on Nov. 17, 2008, and was then chosen to play during the CBS New Year's Eve show less than 45 days later.

The show currently is running at the Westgate Las Vegas Casino and Resort.

Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster and are $14.99 for the floor and $19.99 for reserved seating.
