Prince is undoubtedly one of the most prolific artists of our time, and his recorded music, live performances, and powerful artistry have affected music and pop culture like no other. This December, the groundbreaking artist will bring his extraordinary live production, WELCOME 2 AMERICA, to the New York area!
After 21 nights of sold-out shows in London, Prince returns to the east coast for the first time since 2004. Prince will dazzle fans with a different experience every night by featuring stellar guests including Maceo Parker, Janelle Monae, Mint Condition, Esperanza Spalding, Cassandra Wilson, Sinbad, Lalah Hathaway, Sheila E., and Graham Central Station.
Also, the solid gold Fender ® Custom Stratocaster® guitar (master-built by Senior Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov) that Prince will play on stage every night of the tour will be auctioned off to one lucky winner at the end of the run! Proceeds of the auction will benefit Harlem Children Zone (www.hcz.org) -- a community-based organization serving over 17,000 children living in Harlem NYC. The organization's CEO, Geoffrey Canada, was also be on hand at the press conference.
Don't miss your chance to see the seminal artist who's captured seven GRAMMY® Awards, a Golden Globe, an Oscar®, and a Webby Award for visionary use of the Internet. Prince's chameleon-like image, signature style, and constantly evolving sound echo in the work of two generations of artists across multiple genres. Get tickets now!
