Prince, Peace Concert

NPG Records

While the world is continuing to wrap their head around the tragic news that Prince has left us, fans know that there is no better way to say goodbye to the late icon than with a giant dance party.

In honor of the pop legend, Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue is hosting an all-night dance party for those 18 years and older, which is slated to go on from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. Yep, you read that right.

Aaron Lavinsky of Star Tribune posted a photo of the thousands gathered at the nightclub for the festivities, "The scene outside of @FirstAvenue in MPLS. Thousands of #prince fans celebrate his life at block party @StarTribune."

A Facebook post on the club's page said, "Our hearts are broken. Prince was the Patron Saint of First Avenue. He grew up on this stage, and then commanded it, and he united our city...Rest in peace and power Prince."

Another block party erupted in front of Spike Lee's home in Brooklyn, with over 5,000 people joining together to remember the music mogul by dancing to his famous hits.

"We're all stunned by sudden death, but he's still here in the spiritual form, and we love him," Lee said. "We're just dancing and singing and shouting!"

People also gathered to celebrate Prince's life at Apollo theatre in New York, where fans continued to get down to his unforgettable sounds.
