NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Tickets to The Purple Xperience, the most authentic Prince tribute show in the world, are still available for the group's Nov. 30 concert at Stephen F. Austin State University.

A special Encore Event in the College of Fine Arts' University Series and sponsored in part by Lehmann Eye Center, The Purple Xperience is a five-piece group that transports the spirit and sound of Prince direct from Minneapolis.

Featuring front man Marshall Charloff, who once recorded with Prince, The Purple Xperience has entertained well over 300,000 fans and shared the bill with The Time, Cheap Trick, Gin Blossoms, Cameo, Fetty Wap, the Atlanta Rhythm Section and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus. Prior to the performance, Herbert Midgley, music technology lecturer in the SFA School of Music, will present an informative talk at 7 p.m. in Griffith Gallery. The gallery is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium, which is inside the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. The audience is invited back to the gallery for a post-performance reception to meet the performers and to honor the corporate sponsor.

Encore Event tickets are $45 for Section A seating; $36 for Section B seating; and $27 for Section C seating. Discounts are available for seniors, students, children and SFA faculty and staff members.
