Over a career spanning nearly four decades, Prince has taken home seven Grammys and sold over 100 million copies of albums including Purple Rain and Sign "O" the Times. Now, the legend is announcing plans to bring his epic live show to the East Coast with a trio of gigs next month at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
The concerts kick off Friday, December 27th, followed with a Saturday, December 28th, performance and finishing on Sunday, December 29th. Tickets for all three gigs go on sale Friday, December 6th, at 10 a.m. EST through Ticketmaster (more info here).
The past three months have been eventful for the Minneapolis native. After a longstanding and highly public battle against the Internet, Prince joined Twitter in August and used the forum to share the artwork for his new single "Breakfast Can Wait," which features comedian Dave Chappelle's impersonation of the artist from Chappelle's Show. Six weeks later, nearly 2,000 fans lined an out-of-the-way block in suburban Minnesota to watch the artist jam at his Paisley Park studio. (They were treated to a career-spanning funk blowout.) And just last week, he returned to Twitter and posted another single, "Da Bourgeoisie," a sparse, bass-thumping track about "kicking it with another girl."
