The official Prince Australian tour announcement still hasn’t come this week as predicted, but it seems we may be one step closer in piecing together the puzzle. If a tweet from Inpress Mag is correct, Prince will announce shows at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
Rumours suggest the tour dates will run throughout late July/August.
This tour will be just the third time Prince has toured the country in a career that has spanned over 3 decades.
The first time Prince visited our shores was in 1992 when he played 2 Shows at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, 5 shows at Flinders Park Tennis Centre in Melbourne, then another 5 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre before winding things up with a 6th show at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
On his return in 2003, the guitar genius and master of melody only played 2 shows in Melbourne, 2 shows in Sydney and 1 show in Brisbane.
Prince was first rumoured to be coming to Australia to play the Big day Out Festival in 2012. However, this failed to eventuate when Prince pulled out of the deal, leaving the promoters with all sorts of problems.
