Yep, youll get to go to one for sure.

Is there any method to the madness on whats going to be "the best show"?
Not stupid question: How different is it from night to night?
One sec, let me get my time machine!
Hmm the weekend after Coachella might work out for me.
Oh, man. I need to see this. More information!
Not all the shows are at the Forum, just the first few ones. I'm gonna hold out for some crazy small venue business. Not sure anything in this rd of shows is gonna top those Roosevelt residency shows though.
11/23 Seth Troxler - Visionquest Party
11/24 Deltron 3030 - Fonda
12/3 Pretty Lights - Wiltern
12/5 2ManyDJs - Sound
12/7 Tourist - Lyric Theatre

12/11 Banks - Hollywood Forever Masonic

1/15 John Newman - El Rey
2/23 David Crosby - Troubadour
Yeah, I'm really hoping for a smaller venue the week after Coachella. We leave on Friday the 22nd so I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
That first Oakland show was great, but I need more Purple in my life.
So this residency is starting awfully soon for there to be no information on tickets or venues. Crazy purple little man.
Wouldn't it be cool if you were held in such high regard that mere rumor and innuendo would start thousands salivating about spending their time and money to see you? The Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters secret shows sent people into a frenzy (including me), and when I heard about the free Soundgarden show I immediately left the house to score wristbands, no questions asked.

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 11, 2011) – Prince, one of the most prolific and groundbreaking artists of our time whose recorded music, live performances and powerful artistry have affected music and pop culture like no other, has declared a string of purple days in Los Angeles. He will bring his extraordinary Welcome 2 America Live tour back to the West Coast with the announcement of a “21 nite stand” in Los Angeles. The Live Nation produced tour arrives on April 14th, 21st and 22nd at the world famous Los Angeles Forum. Tickets for this once in a lifetime event go on sale Tuesday, April 12th at 10am PT at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Additional dates to be announced soon.
Prince kicked off the Welcome 2 America Live tour in New York with a celebrated six night stand in the New York area which received tremendous acclaim by fans and critics every night. Prince followed up with three intimate nights in Oakland and six special nights in the Carolinas where he performed many of his fan favorite mega-hits which had fans in every market screaming and dancing for more.
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, inclusive of all service fees. Prince has taken a different approach with his concerts, announcing shows a matter of days before they happen, but the fans have come out in full force and shown their support. The first 2 Madison Square Garden shows sold out in 30 minutes and over 45,000 tickets were sold in the first 3 days for the string of Oakland shows.
Every show is unique and a night to remember. Special guests for the Los Angeles 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, so many surprises should be expected.
Much like the man himself, the reviews for Welcome 2 America Live have been over the top. “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.” says 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 said “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.”

I guess i'll try for a Friday 4/22 ticket.
Wait, so it isn't '21 nights' in L.A.?
That's stupid though Supre, there are only 3 dates so far and that's 4 "no no" guys that you posted.
Oh, the extra one is for me. The first 3 are the Prince dates. He knows exactly what he is doing btw. Sells out these first 3, pops a few others onsale, sells em out, and repeats the process. How else are you gonna get buzz?
I'm in for April 21st.

Wow, really surprised at those prices. Awesome.
I will make sure to be more knowledgeable about shows that occur on the other of the planet from now on.
I have mentioned it a few times, if you dont pay attention, not my fault.
I have no idea how I'm going to make this happen. I'm already in the negative for vacation time. Somehow, some way, I will see Prince at the Forum though.
I have a bootleg of a show he did at the Forum in... 87, I wanna say.. and it's pretty fucking epic.
I just wet myself. I'm a buy tickets for my mom and me
NO OUTKAST/BONOBO CONFLICT
i wonder if that low ticket price is just for the forum shows, or will also apply for other smaller venues that he might play at...
Let's go on a livin' spree!
