MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prince's old band is reuniting for some live shows following his death.

Members of the Revolution made the announcement in a video posted online Tuesday.

Five band members appear in the video, sitting on a couch. Guitarist Wendy Melvoin says the group's members decided, after spending "three or four days together" grieving Prince's death, that they would like to "come out and do some shows."

She says the group wants to let fans know "we'll be there soon," but gave no details.

Drummer Bobby Z told the Star Tribune he's "happy it's good news" but declined further comment.

None of the members could immediately be reached by The Associated Press for comment.

The Revolution gained fame as Prince's band during his hit 1984 movie "Purple Rain."
