PRINCE has announced a GALA EVENT where he will be performing 2 shows at his Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Show times will be at 8 P.M. & 11 P.M. and will be going on sale today at noon PST. PRINCE's official twitter account will post the link for tickets with VIP Tickets being sold first.

Here is the official press release:

Enigmatic multi-platinum recording icon Prince has announced a GALA EVENT set for January 21st at his historic Paisley Park recording complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Ticket on-sale is set for today at 12PM PST. VIP tickets will be sold first.

The exclusive performance will feature the celebrated composer, performer and multi-instrumentalist in an especially intimate setting – solo with merely a piano and a microphone.  The format will allow fans to experience a more direct one-to-one connection with Prince.  The minimalist concept was originally planned to debut at Konzerthaus in Vienna, Austria late last year, however dates were postponed following sky-rocketing resell prices on secondary ticketing outlets even prior to the official on-sale date.  In a stance against ticket-touts, the icon inverted and reimagined the concept, announcing plans for an exclusive residency at his very own Paisley Park.

For those lucky enough to attend, everything about these exclusive solo performances has been carefully considered to deliver special once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The repertoire list will be culled from Prince’s vast 39-album catalogue and each performance will have a unique set-list that evolves in real time song-to-song. Fans should expect to witness special interpretations of well-known hits, alongside rarely performed B-sides and new never-before-heard material.
In speaking about why he has decided to undertake the minimalist solo concept, Prince has stated: "For several reasons. For starters it is a challenge. You have to try new things. With the piano it is more naked, more pure. You can see exactly what you get”. Indeed, these intimate solo concerts will stand in sharp contrast to the critically acclaimed and incendiary HITNRUN performances Prince delivered with funk-rock band 3RDEYEGIRL through recent years. Befitting to the concept of seeing Prince perform solo at a piano, careful consideration has been given to the environment and the acoustics at Paisley Park to ensure an entirely unique, intimate and special concert experience."
