Stuff like this makes prince.org harder and harder to come back to. The rumors of financial ruin have been pervasive for 25 years and it's so <yawn>. Every indicator shows he's flush with cash, other than the ones you make up.

I think you misunderstand my comments. For a guy with the artistic vision and freedom that Prince evidently wants, he needs solid revenue streams or he won't be able to sustain the cost of all his toys (multiple studios, rehearsal spaces, session players, facilities team etc etc etc). Its basic economics. I don't think I said anything about financial ruin as far as I can rememeber. What he is doing is a good way of making revenue pretty quickley while minimising costs. Its just efficient and his audience get something they haven't seen from him before. So I'm yawning at your comments as I type this over your overlly precious attitude towards a pretty innocuous statement!!!

None of us really know the "basic economics" of running Paisley Park, or Prince's income, in 2015. There's as much evidence that this is a cash grab as there is that it isn't shrug

This guy named Dr. funkenberry (very ridiculous name if you ask me) is saying the Belgium show will be December 22, not november. That would be more likely since the Royal Circus is already booked in November.

Dr Funkenberry although talks alot about Prince, generally does get drip fed info and often correct or there about.

I think they give him just enough info for him to keep him tweeting and blogging about Prince lol

As riviting as the acoustic section of the musicology tour was, I'm certain this will be a resounding success, commercially and critically. Dude has so much charisma it's sickening, and when he ain't gotta spread it around...

December 22nd ... Oh yes, my prayers have just been heard ! biggrin

But I'm aware I'll have to do much more praying to ensure I can get my hands on a ticket for this show smile because if it will really go ahead in a small venue such as the Royal Circus in Brussels, this is not going to be easy...

Maybe it's part of his accompanying tour Piano, a Microphone and an Orchestra.

LOL. But i'm thinkly sadly it's probably going to be him and Josh. This is probably Prince's idea of solo.

Venues so far are tiny. Hoping the Glasgow date is in a decent sized venue.

Tiny venues like that will all indeed sell out in 5 minutes flat. But us Prince fans don't need to worry I think, since we probably all will be refreshing the ticket-site a day in advance wink

For current confirmed dates, approximate capacity appears to be:

Konzerthaus (Großer Saal), Vienna, Austria - 1,800

this proabably still needs confirmation, this site still says it's either Konzerthaus or Burgtheater

I'm sacared waht the ticket prices will be ...

Oh yeah sad ... I heard normal tickets for the tour might be around 300€

With a very special thank you to Tina: Is hammer already absolute, how much some people verändern...ICH hope is never so I will be! And if, then I hope that I would then have wen in my environment who joins me in the A....
