A new interview on an Italian site debuted early Wednesday morning (late Tuesday evening in the U.S.) You can access the interview here.

2 dates in Denmark, 1 in Sweden, and 1 in Norway. In Britain, 4 dates: Glasgow, Birmingham, London and Liverpool. There will be at least one each in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France, Austria, Belgium and Spain. The story was first broken HERE.

According to the promoter, it is the first time in 37 years Prince has embarked on a tour like this. Also, not all dates have been signed so there might be some changes where dates are added or changed. The promoter is Doctor Music (a distant cousin on our Aunt's side of the family.) and Danish Promoter's ICO.

"Why do this now? For several reasons. For starters it is a challenge. I do not want to have bad reviews, but not back to what I'm sure I can do because I've done for 30 years. You have to try new things. With the piano it is more naked, more pure. You can see exactly what you get. "-Prince

Prince has just released HITNRUN Phase one in September and 3 albums in the past year (Art Official Age, PLECTRUMELECTRUM) along with an exclusive deal with Tidal Music that has been seeing his extensive catalog on display for the Jay Z run streaming service.

When we have more info, confirmed dates, sale dates, will update U here and on social media platforms.

Thanks to the #purplearmy for their patience over the weekend as I hinted on Twitter about the tour but couldn't give exact details as it had to be one of the journalists who attended the Paisley Park event this weekend to break the story.-DocFB

Diagnosis: We will be bringing back the PRINCE Spreecast during the tour. U can access it here and join us live on November 25th (tentative) and be on camera and who knows what other surprises will be in store!

  11. Oh and I’m so glad the Doc got to break the news, seems a decent fellow, and I was checking on him for those of us who don’t tweet or do much social media at all, which now that I’ve watched MR.ROBOT I’m glad! However I would love if some one could actually do what the hacker on that shows premise is all about:) Freedom….

  12. I am with Dee, I would love to see a DVD from this tour or any Prince tour.

  13. Can you do some tour dates in the US like Los Angeles 🙂 Love to see you perform each and every time!!

  14. Any news on where tickets will be on sale as yet? Can’t find anything anywhere. Thanks.

  15. WoW that’s awesome, we have some Danish girlz living with us, they are bummed they wont be back in time for this. And well I really want to move to Denmark after hearing about it, but maybe Germany. All I know is California is tOO hOt

    It sounds amazing I hope to see U in Cali, and I hope ufindurwaybackhome.
    Philia

  18. Great news.
    I hope to get my ticket and be part of the happy few peeps attending.
