Last September, Prince’s old backing band The Revolution reunited for a few memorial shows in honor of the Purple One, and now Billboard is reporting that the band’s Purple Rain-era lineup is getting back together for a proper tour of the United States this spring. Pitchfork adds that this particular group of musicians is also credited on Around The World In A Day and Parade, with some of them appearing on 1999 as well.

The tour is a short trip, and it strongly favors the East Coast (as these things often do), but it’s not like the world gets a lot of opportunities to see The Revolution play as it is. We should probably just take what we can get.

The full—and very brief—list of dates is below:

The Revolution 2017 Tour

4/23—Metro—Chicago, IL

4/27—The Fillmore Silver Spring—Washington, DC

4/28—B.B. King’s—New York, NY
