The one and only PRINCE we hear is set to perform in Norway October 18th and Northern Europe for 7 dates to be announced in total so far.

The greatest living performer alive (Eat your heart out Gaga) has been rehearsing for the shows at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis, Minnesota for almost a month. 

No word yet what has been rehearsed but the Dr. is all ears..and if he can tell you.  How cool would it be to see Prince rehearse?  Jamming on the piano.  The bass.  The guitar.  The keyboards.  And for the 2nd song......

Well, we cannot tell you yet what is being rehearsed and I hope I am not going to get a few purple lashes for this but we hear that drummer extraordinaire John Blackwell is back with the Minneapolis genius along with..... I've said too much already but we will keep you posted!

When dates are set and confirmed, we will let you know.

Tell Elin to come, tigers! 

Norway and Northern Europe are you ready to get FUNKY??-Dr.FB

There is also an age restriction of 18 & over.
 
Update 2:

Belgium: Prince concert temporarily on hold Unfortunately, the Prince concert that was to take place on 26 October in the Sportpaleis has been put on hold temporarily. Due to an unforeseen change to the tour schedule, a number of previously-confirmed dates have been withdrawn and only 5 concerts in Europe have been confirmed as definite: 18 October in Bergen (Norway), 20 October in Copenhagen (Denmark), 22 October in Herning (Denmark), 2 November in Rome (Italy) and 3 November in Milan (Italy).The date on which Prince will appear in the Antwerp Sportpaleis may or may not be confirmed during the second half of October. We understand that this is a major inconvenience. We ask all the fans to have some more patience. As soon as there is more news, you will receive an email.

I suddenly remember the 'See you soon' message on the screens after the Werchter show. It all makes sense now ...

@ 'the cross' roads between the two worlds, through the great sea of gravitational force, the "old world" gives way and the new sprouts up as it drinks the waters. Yeah, says something about Prince not being wanted in the "New World", and thus finding old friends in the old world dying. Let is serve as a true sign of the times that prince becomes a joker jack puns toward the joke. The cosMick clock ticks as those without a clue waste the little time everyone else has left. Right? Nope, prince is left out.

OK, I so wanna see Prince live!! This sucks now that I'm old enough to see him and can afford it, he isn't doing any US shows. OK, so I'd go to N. Europe to see him..I need a vacation anyway! lol And I've been there before, I wonder where I can get tickets? It's hard to find anything lately on line when it comes to this genius! C'mon Prince, make it easier for a US fan to come all the way to Europe to see you, I've been wanting too for 22yrs to see you live!!!
