Prince Announces “Welcome 2 America” Tour w/ Janelle Monae, Mint Condition & More This December [Video]


Today, Prince held a press conference at Harlem’s Apollo Theater to announce his upcoming tour “Welcome 2 America” slated to take off later this year in December. While he didn’t say what the first date of the tour would be or what venue he’d be performing at, he did name a couple of artists you can expect to open for him, including Maceo Parker, Mind Condition, Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, and his “favorite new artist” Janelle Monáe. As for what fans can expect from the tour, he had this to say:

“Bring your friends, bring your children,” Prince told the audience, “and bring foot spray, because it’s going to be funky.”

“Come early, come often. I have a lot of hits… no two shows will be the same,” he said.

Also, Prince plans on auctioning off a gold-plated guitar at the end of the tour, in which he will donate the proceeds to the nonprofit benefit group Harlem Empowerment Zone. Spotted @ Billboard.
