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

    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…

    Open letter to Prince and his tour staff


    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?

    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!

    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…

    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!
