The iconic pop star, 52, did give some details at the October 14 press conference at NYC’s Apollo Theater – that he would be joined by a roster of A-list pals (Janelle Monae, Sheila E., Maceo Parker, Graham Central Station) and that he would play a solid gold Fender Custom Stratoscaster that would be auctioned off to charity at the end of the run – but he forgot to say just when and where he’d be playing.
Well, I just got the skinny on the NYC-area dates at least. See below and order your tickets starting Saturday, October 30 at 10 am through livenation.com, 800.745.3000 or the old-fashioned way at Ticketmaster locations and box offices. And get this, tickets start at just $20.10! How’s that for charity?
Hrmmm shows on Dec 18 & Dec 29 in NYC... so do we still think this is a NY area residency (with the rest of the shows to be announced) or possibly a couple of west coast dates thrown in? That 11 day span doesn't give me much hope for a bay area show.
God, flights are so expensive during that time. It's so maddening because a couple of days before this was announced I said to my husband, "You know, the universe wouldn't be so cruel as to keep me from seeing Prince in my lifetime. I bet he'll be coming around soon." So I absolutely have to go, right? Won't I fuck up the cosmos if I don't go now?
