Please plan to arrive at First Avenue’s main entrance 15 minutes before your scheduled tour time. Each tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.
Experience the venue made famous by Prince’s Purple Rain, and get a behind-the-scenes look at how First Avenue & 7th St Entry began. Step onto our world-renowned stage, check out the “set list wall” backstage, and maybe even hear a few ghost stories. We’ve been the launching pad for local bands like Atmosphere, Hüsker Dü, the Replacements, Semisonic, and Soul Asylum; additionally, the club is a stepping stone for national musicians including Joe Cocker, U2, Eminem, Tina Turner, Black Flag, The Ramones, Depeche Mode, Bo Diddley, Lucinda Williams, Metallica and, of course, Prince.
