prince announces new concert series in new york


Yesterday, Prince held a press conference at the Apollo Theater in NYC to announce his plan for a concert series in December. His Almighty Purpleness, who is billing the series as Welcome 2 America, told the audience that these concerts are " what we've all been waiting for: multiple nights of entertainment" that will begin "on a purple day in December 2010."

Though Prince didn't specify whether Welcome 2 America will be a tour or a run at one theater, but the artist insisted the show was for everyone. He told the crowd:

"Bring your friends, bring your children and bring foot spray, because it's going to be funky."


As for who'll be jamming with the Highness of Sound, the lineup includes Maceo Parker, singer Janelle Monae, Minneapolis funk band Mint Condition, multi-instrumentalist jazz singer Esperanza Spalding, Cassandra Wilson, Graham Central Station, and Sheila E.

Prince will serve as the master of ceremonies and perform with his band, the New Power Generation.

Nice! Sounds like fun! More deets, please!

    Why would anyone want to pay to make him richer?

  2. 2

    is he even relevant anymore?

  3. 3

    Don't get your hopes up!!! About 2 weeks ago he announced he would play in Antwerp on oct 26th. 2 days before sales start he puts the concert 'on hold' until further notice… We still don't know if he'll be playing or not!!!

    I hope he comes to Cali!

    his shows suck now. all he does is play 15 minute versions of songs that no one cares about. then he walks to a corner and watches his own band play. he was genius in the 80s, now hes just pathetic.
