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
Prince, we'd love you to come back to London in 2011... it would be amazing if this could happen as we love you and the funk! Thanks xx
ireland????? There was a big court case here after Prince cancelled the last concert planned for Ireland in 2008 - I was so upset at the time and hope the court case hasn't put the funky one's management off coming back to Ireland ever again............... PLEASE come to Ireland
I cannot believe that it is the third time Prince is cancelling his date in Helsinki,Finland. I do not know the reason but it really makes me wonder WHY... Love,r.
Open letter to Prince and his tour staff Hi! I am a Prince fan from Finland. Been fan since 1983. Since Prince concerts 1988 and 1990, total four concerts, were all cancelled it seemed doomed that people in Finland would never see Prince performing concert here. In fact many here doesn’t understand how strongly Prince and his reputation is based on his live performances. I know. I know since I have witnessed great concerts in other countries: five times in Sweden, once in Germany, once in USA and three times in UK. Seen many different tours with different musicians. Every Prince concert has topped any other concert that I have seen. This fall we hear first time in 20 years that Prince would come to perform in Finland. How great that would be. To us loyal fans who have allways tried to convince, friends and anybody interested in music, about Prince’s music and especially about his concerts. Now we had the chance to show them what the real music and real musicians are about! Now we could be proud! Not to mention how many us loyal fans would finally have the opportunity to bring our kids to concert and make them see what there is about Prince that make their parents ‘go grazy’ time to time.. And even more! We read that John Blackwell and Sheila E are back! Could we dream for anything more? Yes. We could dream that the concert once announced would happen. Monday morning we got dissapointing news. Date for concert is postponed. If this is not rescheduled will the next attempt be after next 20 years? Hope not. Please make this happen during this tour! ‘Show us how You do that thing up in funky town’ Student of Purple Yoda
Hahaa, at least three Finish women have cried yesterday because of you my darling Prince. Now you take your guitar and your band and drag your nice little ass to Hartwall Areena. If we have to waste our tears for you, we need to get something back from you. Some great music playing maybe, please?
Milka: In my family, both my daughter and wife cried and I was truly frustrated. I hope, they will find a new date for the gig(s).
I was extremely disappointed yesterday, when I heard he will postpone concert in Finland. I am afraid the concert is cancelled and it makes me sad...Hey Prince, I have dreamt to see you in Finland almost 20 years and it is a very loooooong time. You know, it is not nice to make grown up woman cry!
It starts to feel like, Prince has something against Finland. If this concert wíll be totally cancelled, there won't be any promoter left who will take a chance with Prince. I hope Prince's crew will find an another day as soon as possible.
Hopefully he can find another date for Finland for this tour, lots of the people who never got the change to see him here got really happy when they heard he is finally on his way to funk up Finland. Please try to reschedule this time!
Now Finland concert is postponed. If it's not going to happen at all, it will be the fifth cancelled Prince concert in Finland. In the other words, Prince has never played in Finland. There will be a huge amount of dissapointed Prince fans, again. I hope they will find some suitable day for concert as fast as possible.
I hope he comes to Barcelona, would not miss this!! Anyway, he's Prince, so I would seriously consider making a weekend trip to any other european city if he didn't come by Bcn...
Prince, John Blackwell and Sheila E!!!!!! It's going to be on and popin! Can't Wait tell they come and "DROP IT LIKE IT HOT" in the U.S.!
Prince? On Stage? Workin' all that talent? With all that Beautifull-ness? I wish he will come near me! LOVE HIM! e
What about a show a Geneva ? This summer, I have bought a ticket for Geneva show which has never took place. First, it was postponed before being cancelled at the last minute. What a mess! I have never got any refund for this cancelled show. So Prince, you own me a show or tell your concert promoter to give me my money back, thanks!

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 :)

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) ? like you said, you never know ... by the way, I know that picture, I've taken it in Nice. see nice20ten-en.blogspot.com/

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......!!
