If there was ever an Employee Of The Month award for the music industry, April’s would have to be handed to Prince – in preparing for a run of shows through Europe, His Royal Badness has announced 28 North American shows all to happen in the time frame of 23 days. Now that is a diligent and productive worker.
The shows will happen back-to-back at 8 different venues for the mini-tour, the first of which kicks off Monday, 15th April according to Artist Direct. Prince will be hitting cities including Seattle, San Francisco and Vegas.
The cheeky little run should put The Artist Formerly Known As The Artist Formerly Known As Prince in fine form for his European dates. Once on the other side of the pond, he will be hitting Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland before treating his Swedish fans with a headlining slot at Stockholm Music & Arts Festival and wrapping up at Denmark’s Smuckfest.
I’m sure he’s just waiting for the right moment to announce something similar for Australia…
