OMG! Prince is touring Australia this month
Prince has just announced that he is touring Australia this month. Yes this month.
The Purple One is set to bring his “Piano and Microphone” tour to our shores some time in February, with more details coming soon.
Prince been playing a series of intimate performances at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota with just a piano and a microphone. “For those lucky enough to attend, everything about these exclusive solo performances has been carefully considered to deliver special once-in-a-lifetime experiences,” the press release for the Paisley Park shows explains. “The repertoire list will be culled from Prince’s vast 39-album catalogue and each performance will have a unique set-list that evolves in real time song-to-song. Fans should expect to witness special interpretations of well-known hits, alongside rarely performed B-sides and new never-before-heard material.”
The Purple one last toured Australia back in May 2012 playing three dates in Sydney and Melbourne plus a two-night stand in Brisbane with his full band in a full scale arena production complete with a 360 degree stage. Read FL’s review of the show here.
