A planned U.K. tour and West End run of Purple Rain, a tribute show to late musician Prince, could be in jeopardy after representatives for his estate threatened legal action against the show’s producers, according to BBC.com.

In a statement released to the BBC, Prince’s estate claims the show, which is billed as a theatrical tribute with singers, dancers, and onstage musicians, “is a blatant attempt to deceive fans into thinking they’re seeing a Purple Rain musical on the West End, when it’s only a cover band playing Prince’s songs.”
