Prince Australian tour dates

Update: A second Brisbane show has been added on May 26th. Tickets on sale Monday April 23rd.

So this is what it sounds like when doves cry! After months of rumour-mongering and false starts the Prince Australian tour dates have finally been announced.

The Purple one will land on our shores for the first time in eight years this May, and with his most recent US shows featuring costume changes, greatest hits medleys, dancing a-top pianos and guitar solos galore it’s safe to say we are in for one hell of a Princely treat.

Tour promoters Chugg had forecast that the long awaited tour announcement would come tomorrow, but the Purple Rain has started falling a little early with Everguide leaking the Prince tour dates in a story forward dated to April 12th.

Prince has announced single shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in mid-May, with plenty of room for extra shows (and after-parties). The tour will feature a huge full scale arena production including “groundbreaking technology and a complete 360 degree stage”.

Prince Australian tour dates:

Friday 11th May – Allphones Arena, Sydney

Saturday 12th May – Allphones Arena, Sydney

Monday 14th May – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

Tuesday 15th May – Rod Laver, Melbourne

Friday 18th May – Entertainment Centre, Brisbane

Saturday May 26th – Entertainment Centre, Brisbane – JUST ADDED

Wednesday 30th May – Rod Laver, Melbourne

On both of his previous Australian tours Prince has played ‘secret’ intimate club shows after his sold out stadium gigs – so keep an ear out for word of some special extra dates!
