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."

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