Prince has announced a 2016 Perth show

After selling out all his east coast dates Prince has announced a Perth show as part of this forthcoming Piano & A Microphone tour.

Prince will play “in the round” at Perth Arena on Thursday, February 25. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 13  at 12pm (WST) through Ticketek.

The purple one will kick off the tour with four shows in Melbourne at the State’s Theatre on February 16 and 17, then head to Sydney for another four gigs: two at the at the Sydney Opera House on February 20 and another two at the State Theatre on February 21. Prince will also perform for the very first time in New Zealand at Auckland’s ASB Theatre on February 24.

Prince debuted his Piano & A Microphone shows with a pair of intimate performances at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota last month. “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.”
