Just announced via his fan club, Prince will be appearing with his latest protege, Tamar, this Sunday and Monday, March 12 & 13 at Nation. If you caught their SNL performance together last month, you’ll know you won’t want to miss this.
If you’re a member of the fan club, the presale is going on NOW (it began at 10 a.m. this morning). If you’re not a member of the fan club, and think you might ever want to see Prince, you should become a member, as it only costs $25 to be a member for life, and membership gets you into presales where you can buy a pair of tickets to any show (usually within 10 rows of the stage for an arena show), and pay NO service charge.
You can join the fan club (and then buy Nation tix) at www.npgmc.com. Looks like member tix are still available for both nights. Presumably, the general onsale will be Saturday, but that’s just a guess.
Tickets for the Nation shows are $31.21. Yes, you read that correctly. Just over thirty bucks to see Prince play a club.
A friend saw the show in Philly a week or two ago and said it was completely sick.
Given that the world’s greatest live band, Marah, are playing at Iota Sunday night, those of you who know me can probably guess which night I’ll be seeing the Purple One.
Note: Doors for these shows are at 10 p.m., and the show starts at midnight.
