“My Name is Prince.”

Start planning your pilgrimages now, diehard Prince fans. This October a one-of-a-kind exhibition will feature belongings of the late pop icon on display in London's O2 arena.

Among the notable pieces is the singer's purple jacket and ruffled shirt and other stage clothes from the Purple Rain (1984/85) tour and LoveSexy tour (1988/89), wardrobe pieces from Graffiti Bridge (1990), the guitar Prince used during his national television debut on American Bandstand in 1980, the original bass that inspired the Cloud guitar, the orange cloud guitar Prince used during his 2007 Super Bowl halftime performance, Third Eye sunglasses from 2014, a diamond-studded cane from 2015, "Raspberry Beret" cloud suit, and never-before-seen pieces from the Paisley Park estate in Minnesota.

"This is the first time we've taken any items out of Paisley Park," said Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, in an interview with The Guardian. "I'm so excited to be able to meet fans and share their Prince stories and give them hugs, and have a cry with them if need be." It was a year ago this April since Prince died of an overdose at age 57. The exhibit will have a 21-day run, commemorating the record-breaking 21 sold-out shows Prince played at the O2 arena in 2007. Tickets are on sale today.
