Over a career spanning nearly four decades, Prince has taken home seven Grammys and sold over 100 million copies of albums including Purple Rain and Sign “O” the Times. Now, the legend is announcing plans to bring his epic live show to the East Coast with a trio of gigs next month at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The concerts kick off Friday, December 27th, followed with a Saturday, December 28th, performance and finishing on Sunday, December 29th. Tickets for all three gigs go on sale Friday, December 6th, at 10 a.m. EST through Ticketmaster (more info here).

The past three months have been eventful for the Minneapolis native. After a longstanding and highly public battle against the Internet, Prince joined Twitter in August and used the forum to share the artwork for his new single “Breakfast Can Wait,” which features comedian Dave Chappelle’s impersonation of the artist from Chappelle’s Show. Six weeks later, nearly 2,000 fans lined an out-of-the-way block in suburban Minnesota to watch the artist jam at his Paisley Park studio. (They were treated to a career-spanning funk blowout.) And just last week, he returned to Twitter and posted another single, “Da Bourgeoisie,” a sparse, bass-thumping track about “kicking it with another girl.”

  1. P.S. His concerts are ASTOUNDING. I’ve personally seen him six times in concert – always completely worth it – he truly is a modern musical genius!

  2. Bernasvibe, as far as we know here at GBN, Prince hasn’t had work done – he’s just stopped relaxing his hair and happens to now be in his 50s! Other than perhaps using some contouring make-up on his cheeks as well as eye make-up, to us he looks how he looks – like Prince. But if you discover a source that contradicts either one of our suppositions, please share!

  3. Is it my imagination or is he looking different these days? Been a Prince fan for as long as he’s been on the scene..Looks like he’s had some work done..And to that I say UGH..More importantly I’ve been told, by reliable sources, Prince gives one of the best shows ON earth..I missed his concert the last time he was in Cali..(long story..) But I sure hope he makes his way out here. Or even the Essence Festival..
