Prince Announces L.A. Shows!!! Tix On Sale TODAY For First 3 At The Forum


Prince announced last week that he'll be playing a Twenty One Nite stand in the Los Angeles area as part of his Welcome 2 America concert tour. We got more details today in a press release from LiveNation. Highlights include:

- The first 3 shows will be at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, April 14, Thursday, April 21, and Friday, April 22. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, April 12 at 10am Pacific time via ticketmaster.com.

- In an effort to make the show affordable for all of his fans, Prince has declared that roughly 85% of all tickets will be available at $25, inclusive of all service fees.

- Citi cardmembers will have access to preferred seats through Citi's Private Pass Program. For complete details visit citiprivatepass.com

No word yet on who the special guests will be for each show, but past artists in New York, Oakland and the Carolinas have included Esperanza Spalding, Maceo Parker, Graham Central Station, Santana, Lalah Hathaway, Cee Lo Green, Cassandra Wilson, and Sheila E.

So that's 3 shows we know of so far, 18 more to go. LiveNation says that additional L.A. dates and special guests will be announced shortly. We're loving those ticket prices because that means more purple hippies will be able to go multiple shows.

And don't forget to tune into the Lopez Tonight show on TBS this Wednesday night to catch Prince and the NPG performing live.

Hold on 2 your wigs, y'all! It's about 2 get funky. - Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  L.A. Will Never Be The Same.  Never!

Update:  I want to send an apology to Prince and his camp and Drfunkenberry readers.  We were sent this fantastic image over the weekend along with other information.  Unfortunately, it hit an old email address and was not posted/shared as quickly as we normally do.  This problem has been taken care of n the Dr. takes responsibility on his end n  rest assured, as soon as we get info, it will be shared with DrFunkenberry.com
