Everyone is looking forward to honoring Prince's memory.

On Monday, tickets went on sale for the star-studded tribute concert remembering the late legend, and they sold out immediately.

According to the StarTribune, some fans who logged on right at 10 a.m. — when tickets became available on Ticketmaster — were greeted with this message:

"No tickets but keep trying. Other fans may have reserved and released seats!"

We can't say we're surprised how quickly the October 13 show sold out, considering the lineup includes Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day and the Time, Judith Hill, and Liv Warfield.

On Ticketmaster, prices ranged from $19.99 to $152.50, and already ticket holders are trying to flip their passes on sites like Stubhub and SeatGeek for a pretty steep profit.

The stars will take the stage at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota next month to honor the iconic artist.

It'll never get easier knowing these talented, unique, beautiful souls are gone — but at least their memories live on.

There's no question 2016 has been a particularly difficult year in terms of losing amazingly talented celebs, from David Bowie and Prince, to the sudden, horrible tragedy surrounding young Christina Grimmie.

And then just yesterday, it was Alexis Arquette — another inspirational figure taken far, far too soon.

While it will always be tough to talk about the losses, honoring their memories and legacies by supporting their work and remembering their achievements goes a long way to ease the pain.

Here, just nine months into the year, revisit the incredibly sad list of stars we've lost.

Prince's Ex Opens Up About The Late Singer's Alleged 'Cocaine Diet' & Habit Of Going Days Without Sleep

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.PrinceSad Sad

Prince

Prince's death continues to affect all of those close to the late singer.

As you know, the music icon was found dead in the elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called Fentanyl.

Later, it was revealed the Raspberry Beret singer often stashed the drugs that killed him in over the counter pill bottles, such as aspirin and Vitamin C containers to hide his addiction.

For the Purple Rain artist's ex Charlene Friend, this discovery is just a reminder of how secretive Prince was about his drug use.

Although they spent several years in each other's company, the 44-year-old claims she never saw the multi-instrumentalist ever once do drugs, according to People. Wow.

But Friend does admit in hindsight, Prince's behavior makes way more sense.

The VMAs Didn't Honor David Bowie Or Prince — And Fans On Twitter Aren't Having It!

They didn't even have a host, you think they were gonna have an In Memoriam?

The 2016 MTV VMAs had everything from a 15-minute Beyoncé concert to four separate Rihanna performances… but there was one thing noticeably missing:

Tributes to our fallen heroes!

Unfortunately, MTV didn't figure out a way to fit an In Memoriam segment into their 3-hour show on Sunday night; maybe they assumed they'd get a pass since literally every other awards show has honored the legends to some extent.

Well, that simply wasn't the case at the VMAs, and now fans of both Prince and David Bowie are complaining about the slight on Twitter!

Prince's Alleged Ex-Drug Dealer Believes The Late Singer Knowingly Purchased Mislabeled Drugs To Conceal His Addiction

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.PrinceSad SadAddictionControversy

Prince

The former dealer who claims to have been Prince's source for drugs for decades thinks the late singer knew exactly what pills he was taking when he died back in April.

In fact, the man who wishes to be called Doctor D says the Purple Rain artist would often buy powerful opiates concealed in mislabeled bottles in order to hide his addiction, according to DailyMail.

As you know, the music icon was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called fentanyl. This week we found out the pills seized from the Raspberry Beret singer's home were labeled as hydrocodone but were actually fentanyl on the inside. To make matters worse, it's said Prince stashed the counterfeit drugs in over the counter pill bottles, such as aspirin and Vitamin C containers.

The mislabeling led authorities to question whether the 57-year-old knew exactly what he was taking.

But according to Doctor D — who previously opened up about Prince's expensive and ultimately-fatal addiction — the songwriter may not have intentionally overdosed, but he knew the contents of the drugs:

What a touching tribute.

On Sunday night, Coldplay welcomed a very special guest to the stage during their Pasadena concert at the Rose Bowl. Chris Martin announced to the excited audience that James Corden would be joining the band to remember Prince.

The frontman revealed the Late Late Show host would be performing Nothing Compares 2 U alongside the musicians, saying:

"I'm very pleased to tell you that in honor of Prince tonight, because we want to honor Prince, we managed to convince our missing and best member to come back into the band."

The Trolls star joked about agreeing to sing, quipping:

"I'll be honest, I didn't know how big it was when I said yes."

But, on a serious note, the comedian was incredibly grateful to the band for getting the opportunity to honor the late legend together:

"I'm a little nervous, but thanks to the four of you on behalf of this audience, as I am just a fan, for this incredible night that you have given us all."

The red-haired funny man and Gwyneth Paltrow's ex took turns singing the beautiful Prince-penned ballad Nothing Compares 2 U, letting their impressive pipes shine through in an amazing tribute.

And to make the moment even more special for Mr. Corden, the guys got the audience to participate in a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday after they finished song, since the actor turned 38 on Monday!

Watch their moving performance and James' birthday shoutout (below)!
