Prince, or the artist formerly known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince, hasn’t played the Seattle-Tacoma area since 2004—but thanks to scheduling conflicts, that’s about to change. A concert slated for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (uh, where?) has been canceled and Prince will now end his Welcome to Canada tour in Tacoma on December 19. Close enough, eh?
Over the past year, Prince has consistently invited superstar guests to perform—Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and Chaka Khan among them—though no news yet about any special voices joining him in Tacoma. Either way, we still get his falsetto, a lineup of his greatest hits, and those crazy legs, as fantastic as ever. So treat yourself to a little flamboyance this season.
Tickets ($20–$199) go on sale this Saturday, November 19 at 10am at ticketmaster.com.
As a warmup, watch this video, and maybe drink a Purple Rain (and we do mean just one—that drink is no joke.)
Prince will play Tacoma Dome on Monday, December 19, at 8pm.
