Last night the music/pop culture blog Dr. Funkenberry revealed exclusively the amazing news that Prince and his new all female band 3rd Eye Girl will be embarking on a West Coast mini-tour next month that, thus far, is made up of 7 cities with 2 concert dates each. It was also revealed that each concert date will feature 2 shows per night!! Starting in mid-April, Prince and 3rd Eye Girl will tour cities spanning the west coast of North America spending 2 nights in each city and performing 2 shows on each night. Wow. Click below to see the announced tour dates and find out when tickets will be made available.
The news was made public during a Spreecast hosted by Dr. Funkenberry and Setjh Everett with 3rd Eye Girl members Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford Welton and Ida Nielsen. Here is a list of the announced tour dates thus far (other dates may be added):
