He's approaching 53 but Prince is showing no signs of slowing down.
And the Minneapolis native who introduced 'Controversy' to the masses in 1981 may just about set the concert industry ablaze with his unorthodox approach to touring.
Today, tickets went on sale for his latest 'Welcome 2 America Live' tour dates, billed as '21 nite stand' in L.A. and announced just yesterday – playing at the Los Angeles Forum April 14, 21st and 22nd.
Going where no artist seems to have gone before, Prince hasn't only just surprised fans with the new spate of shows, but he also declared that roughly 85% of all tickets will be available at $25, inclusive of all service fees.
Taking a very different approach with his concerts, the Grammy and Academy Award-winning musician is announcing shows a matter of days before they happen. And his loyal fan base have come out in full force and shown their support.
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 string of Oakland shows.
Produced by Live Nation, the show is a seemingly endless parade of hits – and even some of his beloved rarities. Special guests for the Los Angeles performances are expected to be announced shortly but for his previous dates Prince has been joined by the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Maceo Parker, Graham Central Station, Santana, Cee Lo Green, Cassandra Wilson, ballerina Misty Copeland and Sheila E.
No telling who will show up at The Forum. But we're sure it will be just as buzz worthy.
