Prince announces Canadian tour

Prince is headed to the Great White North this fall.

The “Welcome 2 Canada” shows make up Prince’s first multi-city national Canadian tour since 2002.

The tour opens with two shows in Toronto on November 25/26, before heading east to Halifax, and back through Ontario and westwards to the December 17 closer in Victoria, BC.

The trip will be modeled after Prince’s recent “Welcome 2 America” tour, which launched in the New York area in December 2010 with a six-night stand. Prince followed up with three intimate nights in Oakland, and six special nights in the Carolinas, where he performed many of his fan favorite mega-hits. The extraordinary run of shows continued with stops in Sacramento, Fresno and San Jose, with more than a quarter of a million fans joining him for a 21-show run in Los Angeles.

Prince welcomed a wide range of guest artists throughout his multi-hour sets, including Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys, Larry Graham, Sheila E., Mary J Blige and many more.

Prince’s most recent album release was last year’s “20Ten,” which was distributed free with newspapers in many parts of the UK and Europe.

Tickets for Prince’s Welcome 2 Canada shows go on sale beginning November 4th at and
