Prince was in Harlem at the Apollo Theater yesterday (Oct. 14) to announce a new series of dates he is undertaking, which he had dubbed the “Welcome 2 America” tour. Artists including Maceo Parker, Janelle Monae, Sheila E, and Mint Condition will all join him on the as-yet unspecified series of dates.
“If you’ve been to one of my shows, then you know what time it is,” he said. “You need to come early and come often because every time we play it’s always something new. I got a lot of hits. Bring friends, bring children, and bring foot spray because it’s gonna be funky.”
It’s difficult to know how this is going to go down, but it looks like one of the most exciting undertakings Prince has been involved in recently—and long term fans have been starved of such good news for far too long. Keep an eye on Prince’s official website for further news.
