There have been no shortage of tributes to Prince since the performer died in 2016, but it’s hard to imagine a day when we’ll ever be tired of them. And the Grammys have lined up what might be the biggest one yet, Rolling Stone is reporting. The organization will host a tribute concert called “Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince” on Jan. 28, two days after the Grammy awards, and the lineup is remarkable.

Alicia Keys, John Legend and Usher will play the concert, along with Beck, Common, Foo Fighters, H.E.R., Earth, Wind & Fire, St. Vincent, Mavis Staples, Chris Martin, Gary Clark, Jr. and Juanes. And the show will be anchored by some of Prince’s most famous collaborators, including Shiela E., who will serve as the show’s musical director along with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

Other participating Prince collaborators include Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles (who sang the Prince-penned hit “Manic Monday”), and Morris Day and the Time. Rolling Stone also reports that Prince’s band The Revolution have signed on, with drummer Bobby Z. telling the publication they “are involved and looking forward to honoring Prince.”

The concert will be broadcast in April.
