Citing an announcement from Live Nation, CBS affiliate WUSA-TV Channel 9 says the Purple One, backed by 3rdEyeGirl, will perform at Warner Theatre June 14.

Prince played a show in Baltimore last month following local unrest in reaction to the death of Freddie Gray, who died April 19 while in police custody.  Dubbed “Rally 4 Peace” the show set aside a portion of  the proceeds for local charities, including NAACP’s Afro Academic, Cultural Technological and Scientific Olympics and the city’s Youth Works and OneBaltimore programs, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Tickets for Prince’s Warner Theatre show go on sale June 11 at 12 p.m. EDT.
