Prince announced his ‘Welcome 2 America’ Tour at The Apollo Theater in New York City on Thursday night (October 14).

The Purple One said he’s planning to begin the tour in December and it will feature him, his band and other performers.

Prince said he will perform with his band, the New Power Generation, and serve as master of ceremonies.

The 52-year-old musician added that ‘Welcome 2 America’ is “best described as what we’ve all been waiting for.” He told concertgoers to “bring friends, bring your children and bring foot spray ’cause it’s gon’ be funky.”

Prince said the shows will feature funk, R&B and jazz artists including Maceo Parker, Janelle Monae, Mint Condition, Esperanza Spalding, Lalah Hathaway, Sheila E., Cassandra Wilson and Graham Central Station.
