The Artist or Prince was one of the most famous musicians in the world. His career started in the seventies of the last century, he scored great hits in the following decades but he sadly passed away in 2016. Of course it doesn't mean that he is forgotten! His music experience is still alive and fans all over the world enjoy his great songs to this very day. I am clearly one of the Prince fans!
The O(+> IDEA
This “O(+> and The Gold Experience” consists out of two parts: the Gold Experience (on stage) and Purple Rain (back stage). It has 2440 parts and 10 minifigures. So that’s the basic idea. Yeah, it’s still an idea and I hope y’all love it, wanna have it and support it!
On Stage – Paisley Park: The Gold Experience
The Gold Experience has almost all the instruments shown in the video: guitars, pianos, keys, synthesizer, drums and base. It also has four big speakers, two at the back and two on the side. These two hold up massive golden statues. Almost all the instruments can easily be removed from the stage. Only the drums are attached to the small stage.
Back Stage: Purple Rain
On the other side of the golden wall, back stage, there is a small building. It is the lodge from the cover of the Purple Rain album. It has a window, an open door and a staircase. In this small building is a light brick that can be switched on by pushing on the silver button in the left wall. In this way you can shine some light on Apollonia (Kotero). Together with The Kid (Prince) she played in the movie Purple Rain. In front of the staircase are The Kid and his purple motorcycle with smoke and all. You can also take the bike from the stage and let the Prince minifigure ride the bike.
The plates of the stage are supported by several thick block structures of the classic LEGO bricks of four by two and plates of four by four in order to make the interior massive and steady. They function as sturdy pillars. These structures come in black and purple.

Why support and why a LEGO IDEAS set?
This project is still an idea and as you may know 10 000 supporters are needed to turn this idea in a real Lego O(+> and The Gold Experience. It be would be a must have for everyone who loves Lego and everyone who loves Prince and everyone who loves music. Since Lego has also taken up instruments, maybe it’s time again for some Music Legends as well! Those that really knew how to play these instruments in a way we will never forget. Prince was definitely one of them! It would also be great to educate a new generation of young Lego builders in a playful way about The Artist, about Prince. Old school and new fans, all over the world, will definitely try to get a piece of Paisley Park in Lego bricks into their homes.
