The forecast calls for purple reign this holiday season, because Prince is going back on tour!
"We're here in New York to announce a series of events that will begin on a purple day in December 2010," the singer said at a press conference at Harlem's Apollo Theater on October 14.
Though MTV says the 52-year-old music superstar was vague on details, he did reveal that his upcoming Welcome 2 America tour will include such acts as Sheila E., Cassandra Wilson, Maceo Parker and Lalah Hathaway.
While tour dates, ticket information and performance venues have yet to be announced, Prince did say this about his upcoming gigs: "Come early, come often. I have a lot of hits... No two shows will be the same."
And before ending his two-minute press conference, the Minnesota native offered this very important piece of advice: "Bring your friends, bring your children," he said, "and bring foot spray because it's going to be funky."
