About Purple Reign Las Vegas
The '90s are long gone, but Prince fans can still party like it's 1999 when Jason Tenner gets on stage. Star of Purple Reign, The Prince Tribute Show, Tenner, and his band perform Prince's biggest hit songs including "When Doves Cry," "Let's Go Crazy" and "1999."
The show is modeled after the legendary artist's performance in the 1984 hit movie "Purple Rain." Midway through the show, performers representing Morris Day and Jerome Benton are escorted into the showroom and take the stage. They keep the crowd on their feet with Morris Day and the Time's hit songs including "The Bird" and "Jungle Love."
With an uncanny resemblance to the real performer, Tenner often gets comments from people that he looks like Prince.
"I think it's kind of strange to be known for being someone else. That's the strange part of it, but it's fun. I'm not one of those impersonators who go out dressed up as Prince," said Tenner. "When that stuff comes off I'm back to just simple old me."
But on stage, the audience is easily fooled. Purple Reign has been recognized worldwide as the premiere Prince tribute show. In 2008 they were the first ever Prince tribute act to be featured as a special guest on "The Late Show with David Letterman."
While seeing the real performer might not be an option, Tenner's show is the next best thing.
