PRINCE: 21 FOR $25 IN L.A. RESIDENCY

The Artist Formerly Known As Opens a 21-Night Stand in L.A. April 14 at Forum
Prince is coming to L.A. for a string of purple days.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has announced he’ll bring his Welcome 2 America Live tour to the City of Angels with a “21 nite stand” beginning this Thursday (4/14) at the Forum.

The Live Nation-produced tour’s first three dates are April 14, 21 and 22, with tickets going on sale tomorrow (4/12) at 10 a.m. (PT) at both www.Ticketmaster.com and www.LiveNation.com. Additional dates to be announced soon.

Prince kicked off the current tour tour in New York with a six-night stand in the New York area. He followed up with three nights in Oakland and six in the Carolinas.

In an effort to make the show affordable for all of his fans, Prince has declared that roughly 85% of all tickets will be available at $25, with all service fees included in the price.  Prince has announced shows a matter of days before they happen, but the first two Madison Square Garden shows sold out in 30 minutes and over 45,000 tickets were sold in the first three days for the Oakland shows.

Special guests for the L.A. performances are expected to be announced shortly, but for his previous shows, Prince has been joined by the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Maceo Parker, Graham Central Station, Santana, Cee Lo Green, Cassandra Wilson and Sheila E

The raves for the tour have been unanimous. “He looks great in heels, in glitter, in silk, in gold, in black, in purple. His voice can go high, it can go low. He can dance on top of a grand piano and not look stupid. He turns restless leg syndrome into an asset. His New Power Generation band is electric, his three backup singers are eclectic, and he is savvy when it comes to choosing openers,” said the Charlotte Observer. The New York Daily News raved, “Prince is worthy of all royal accolades…The hit-friendly show had a kinetic confidence and racing pace that spoke of his singular place in pop history,” while the New York Times opined, “It’s easy to envision Prince as another Chuck Berry or James Brown, barnstorming for decades to come.”  The San Francisco Chronicle raved, “Spinning, strutting and swaying in his towering heels as if no time had passed since the days he dominated MTV with his angular suits and perfectly sculpted hair… neither his fantastic voice nor his dynamic legs showing any signs of slowing down.”

Citi card members will have access to preferred seats through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
