    Default Prince West Coast Tour 2013

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Guys guys guys guys guys guys guys from this forum thread. http://prince.org/msg/12/394370

    I can confirm he's playing smaller venues (1,000 capacity-ish) and tix are going to be pricey. He's playing 4 shows April 30th/May 1st (2 shows per night) in Arizona. I haven't confirmed exact venue but I'm almost sure it's the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ. Once I confirm venue, I'll post again.
    Ok I've been informed of a few more details. The plan as of right now (and you know it could change at any moment) is to play 5 markets: Tempe, AZ (Marquee Theatre), Las Vegas, San Francisco, Portland, OR (Crystal Ballroom), and Seattle, WA (Neumos). Not sure of Vegas and San Fran venues yet. That's all I know now folks!! Should be awesome!! I hope he brings that Friday Dakota Show on the road b/c that would just f--king rule!
    Sorry I can't reveal my source but let's just say it's extremely reliable. I know you really have no reason to believe me, but I wouldn't post info like this just to get everyone riled up. I've been a member since 2004 and I take info like this seriously. I depend on this site for info like this myself so when I became aware of those concert locations, I felt it my duty to share. I don't have anymore details now. Of course things could change at a moment's notice but from what I hear, plans are being finalized for those 5 locations now.
    all from the same guy

    WHOA. those locations look suspicious as fuck to me.

    Anybody want to speculate/cream yourselves over the possibility with me? I know I should definitely not get my hopes up, but if anyone was going to get late added for a second time it would be Prince.

    On the episode of Jimmy Fallon where Prince was the music guest, Fallon stated that Prince will be starting a west coast tour mid-April.

    I really have no expectations of him being a late add. I'm just hoping his SF dates do not coincide with Coachella.

    There'a couple dates in Europe later this summer already announced. My they announce something after SXSW this week if he plays.

    Is there even room in the schedule to add in another 90 minutes on the main/outdoor?

    I mean, it wouldn't be the first time Prince has been announced to be playing Coachella at a late date. But I have to agree (ugh) with Bumblebee on this one. I don't get where they'd even fit it in.

    Wow. This is starting to look a little more legitimate. Faxman posted in the General Phoenix Area Shows thread yesterday that a friend of his who works at the Marquee intimated that Prince would be playing 2 nights at the Marquee soon.

    This could explain why that Phoenix show in Vegas I had tickets to ended up getting inexplicably cancelled; maybe they preempted the venue for Prince.

    I guess it was recently confirmed (today?) that Prince will be playing SXSW this Saturday.

    According to this site, he'll be playing with a 22-piece band.

    As Robin said, I would love for him to be added but I'm not going to get my hopes up (it also just adds one more major conflict to an already conflict-strewn day). It would be fun to go to one of these shows but I have a feeling I'll be priced out if they are all around $200 a ticket plus travel costs.

    I'm I the only one anticipating relatively non-hit shows for this run? Plus the early/late shows also mean he may limit his amount of singing.

    I'll still strongly consider going if the club dates line up for me.

    Why no LA?

    Would there have to be an LA date exclusion even if Coachella is already sold out? Maybe he just has something different planned for LA that is non-Coachella related.

    They're waiting to see if the Lakers make the playoffs along with the Clippers and Kings. If so, the Staples scheduling would be a cluster fuck and it would be almost impossible to schedule a date there.
