Prince’s famed Paisley Park estate will be opening its doors to the public in just a few weeks. October 6th to be exact. Mystery still surrounds the vast depth of content in his home, but details are beginning to emerge on what fans can expect.
Rolling Stone details a few of the items that have been unearthed as workers scrounge the compound including vintage outfits (like the one he wore at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2007), a book with 40 to 50 pages of handwritten lyrics, and a secret room that hid unreleased video footage. Adding to the excitement, a source told Rolling Stone, “Everywhere I turn, it’s, ‘Holy crap.'”
When fans come to Paisley Park, they’ll only be able to view the first floor. Still, there’s plenty for fans to see. Rolling Stone notes,
“More than 12 rooms will be decorated thematically, each documenting a particular era of Prince’s career, down to period costumes, instruments and unreleased concert footage. The recording studios will remain active, and, eventually, Paisley Park’s 12,400-square-foot soundstage and the more intimate nightclub next to it will host live performances by acts yet to be named. The legendary dove cages in the lobby will also remain, as will the original carpet Prince walked on.”
