Prince Australian tour rumour, again

Update: (25/3/12)

Rumour monger extraordinaire Nui Te Koha has declared that “Prince will announce the Australian tour this week”. We really hope he’s onto something, but then again this is the man who brought us classic rumours including Blink 182 and Limp Bizkit for BDO 2010; Blink 182 and Prince for BDO 2012; and Bruce Springsteen for this year’s AFL Grand Final.

At least once every six months a Prince tour rumour starts doing the rounds on the internet, and is behind the latest gossip claiming that: “Prince is close to inking a deal” to open Star City Casino’s new entertainment complex next year.

It has been eight years since The Beautiful One graced us with his presence, so it is safe to say that a visit is well overdue. While the Casino has declined to confirm whether any artists have been locked in for the grand opening, news reports that The Artist Formerly Known as The Artist Formerly Know as, is at the top of the venue’s wishlist.

While we are hoping like hell this particular internet rumour is true, in the words of the man himself , “The internet’s completely over… all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.” So, who knows what to believe!
