PRINCE was officially announced to be playing SXSW by Samsung today as he will be playing their party in Austin, TX this Saturday night.
Anyone who follows DrFunkenberry on Twitter knew that we were hinting at this for the past couple of days, but Samsung had to make the announcement official.
Samsung chief marketing officer Todd Pendelton talked to Mashable.com and had this to say about PRINCE:
“Having Prince in Austin at his first SXSW show will truly be a one night only experience that our Samsung Galaxy owners and friends will remember for years to come,”
“Prince is a legend and true creative and musical genius who has been innovating and pushing the boundaries of music for over 35 years.”
“Prince’s live shows are always phenomenal and I’m sure we’ll be in for some fun surprises on Saturday night.”
This is a big year for PRINCE where he has appeared on the Grammys, on the cover of the new version of Billboard magazine, and will be receiving the Icon Award at the Billboard Awards May 19th. He will also be performing 3 nights at the Montreux Jazz Festival and a few other festivals as well.-DocFB
