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.

PRINCE PERFORMS WHILE RUMOURS OF A LAWSUIT SURFACE

Posted in Prince on August 5, 2010 by fadedblog

Prince was a man at work as he performed at club Palais in Cannes, France today (August 5).

In recent news, the iconic singer is facing a lawsuit from his former lawyer, Ed McPherson, for the amount of $50 000.

McPherson claims the multi-platinum artist refused to pay him for his work on two different cases and has now filed papers in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Prince hired McPherson for an April 2009 case in which he faced a lawsuit from his former agent, Vigliano Associates, LTD and for another case when another of the singer’s ex-attorneys accused Prince of fraud involving a real estate deal.

It looks like Prince may have to face the music.
