Without any warning, the one and only – Prince – has announced his first Detroit performance date in more than 11 years.
The announcement came as part of Prince’s impromptu 2015 Hit & Run Tour, which is unveiling its show dates and locations individually. The tour’s Detroit stop is scheduled for Thursday, April 9, at a currently-undisclosed venue in Detroit. (The performance location will be revealed when tickets are made available to the public.)
Prince (born Prince Roger Nelson) is widely celebrated as one of the music industry’s most innovative personalities of all time. In his 38 years of performing, the Minneapolis-native has received 33 Grammy nominations (seven wins), released more than 30 albums, appeared in four feature films and has sold more than 120 million records worldwide.
Since his last Detroit (Auburn Hills) performance in 2004, Prince has released six studio albums and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In that time Prince also re-joined his former label Warner Bros. Records, after an 18-year split, giving him the rights to his 1980s master recordings.
Tickets to see Prince (somewhere in Detroit) will go on sale via Livenation.com Monday, April 6 at 12 p.m. (So… cancel all of your Opening Day plans.)
