Official PRINCE Tour Announcement


We’ve been keeping you up to date with the latest on the Fall leg of Prince’s 20Ten tour in Europe, which so far is set to funk through Finland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium and Italy. Now here’s some official purple nuggets about the upcoming tour…

Drummer John Blackwell is back on stage for the October dates in Europe. He’ll be joined by newcomer Ida Nielsen of Denmark on the funky bass. We can’t wait to hear these two hold it down for the Purple Yoda.

We’re also being told that the one and only Sheila E. will be joining the tour. Hot like soup right there, y’all.

The set list will be similar to the earlier 20Ten shows from this summer. So lots of great hits mixed in with some unexpected surprises. You know Prince will always surprise, no matter how many times you’ve seen him.

Ticket sales have already kicked off as of yesterday and they’re going FAST. So if you’re even thinking about hitting one of the shows, don’t delay.

As for the rest of the dates on the tour? Prince won’t commit to any long term plans with promoters so we’ll just have to sit tight and see where else his Royal Badness will decide to visit. It’s just the Prince way, right?

Yeah, we know it can be frustrating for fans who are trying to make plans, but hey, it keeps us on our toes, right? 😉 – Dr.FB

    Good news. Tuesday is one night I am bound so Antwerp is out of the question.
    I hope Prince spontaneously somewhere during the weekend pops up in some unexpected place. Keep it a secret so not too many can go and the crowd will not be too large.
    Yeah keep us in the dark…we like it sometimes 🙂

  12. good news to hear Sheila E will join in,
    missed her this summer when is was there for some concerts not the ones I went to.

    Will it be simmilar concert to those this summer? Why are there problems with the placement of the stage then and are therefore some ticketsales postponed (Antwerp, Helsinki) ?

    I wonder will Sheila E be on the drums to or the timbales. But John & Ida together should be an interesting full sound. Looks like Prince plans to roc the sox off this leg of his tour…I wonder will he add Chris Coleman in the future.

    A real major Prince announcement would be the release of his back WB catalogue remastered & expanded or a very very special new Studio project…..but this is something else….the after Tour……!!
