The artist who kicked off an amazing preview of the PIANO & A MICROPHONE tour at his Paisley Park studios in Minneapolis last month is bringing the tour to Australia & new Zealand first. This will mark Prince’s first trip back to Australia since his Welcome 2 Australia tour in 2012. As for New Zealand, Prince has NEVER performed there before? Is that right?

Update from the Dainty Group:

Prince will perform 4 shows at Melbourne State Theatre on February 16 and 17, 2 shows at the Sydney Opera House on February 20 and 2 shows at Sydney State Theatre on February 21. Prince will also perform for the very first time in New Zealand at Auckland’s ASB Theatre on February 24.

Ticket info and sales HERE.

For those blessed enough to attend, everything about these exclusive performances has been carefully considered to deliver special once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The repertoire 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 addition to classic songs from albums including 1999, Purple Rain, and Sign o’ the Times the set-lists have also featured covers by Joni Mitchell, Paul Robeson and Ray Charles; songs Prince has written for other acts including The Time, Sheila E. and Vanity 6; and even a Thelonious Monk-style version of the theme to Batman.

Tickets will go on sale for all Australian shows at 12 noon AEDT on Tuesday February 9, 2016 and for the New Zealand shows at 12 noon NZDT on Thursday February 11, 2016. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

    Would LOVE to see him here in Adelaide!!! Although I’m not sure he’d come here if the schedule is anything like the last tour…
    Either way I’m so excited for this!!

    Can only assume that Adelaide, where I live, will not be part of the tour.
    We always miss out on alot of artists of this calibre.

    I love Prince. But I cannot lie, his last tour to Australia was an epic let-down for me. I bought floor seats and to get mainly Purple Rain and Parade for a $400 price tag broke my heart. Than the NEXT night to do a set of b-sides and slow jams and album cuts PLUS the after party in Sydney? I felt so cheated.

    He blew my mind in Brisbane with the Thunder Tour. Last tour whatever. But if it’s just him and a piano, I may have to go. Still, we’ll see as that last show really broke my heart with disappointment…

    READY!!! Let’s go crazy!!

    You’re right, I don’t think he’s ever performed in New Zealand so they’re in for a fabulous treat!

    This is the best news ever! Can’t wait to see him 🙂
