Morris Day and The Time and Sheila E. to perform at the Dell on 8/25
’80s soul rockers Morris Day and The Timeand renowned percussionist Sheila E. will perform at The Dell Music Center in Fairmount Park on Thursday, August 25th at 7 p.m. Tickets went on sale Wednesday morning and are available for as little as $25. More information and the link to buy tickets can be found here.
Both artists have close ties to late music legend Prince. When they were just kids, Prince and Day were in a band together called Grand Central. In the ’70s, Sheila E. met prince backstage after a gig, beginning a long friendship. It was through her vocal appearance on Prince’s “Erotic City” that launched Sheila E.’s career past the drums and into the spotlight behind a mic.
It’s not far-fetched to think the two acts will honor Prince’s memory when they take the stage at the Dell in August. Before that day comes, take a look at Morris Day and The Time performing back in 1982. Then, watch Sheila E.’s “The Glamorous Life.”
