The group's members, Brown Mark, Bobby Z., Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman and Matt "Doctor" Fink, made the announcement via Facebook on Tuesday, April 26, explaining that after spending a few days together mourning the death of the "Purple Rain" singer, they had concluded it was time to reform.

"We have decided after spending three or four days together now grieving over the loss of Prince that we would like to come out and do some shows," Melvoin said, speaking for the band. "We want to let you know that we'll be there soon, so we want to let you know now."

The band members served as backing musicians for Prince in Minneapolis in 1979, but were not officially titled The Revolution until the singer's hit track "1999" in 1982. They disbanded in 1986 following the Hit n Run-Parade Tour, although they have performed some reunion shows, both with and without their lead vocalist, since then.
