Prince announces more L.A. shows, headlines Open’er Festival

on May 05, 2011, 3:20pm

Despite his fairly straight-forward lyrical content, Prince is a man who knows how to make people work for things. After announcing his 21-night residency in L.A., The Artist Formerly Known as The Artist Formerly Known As Prince got all sensual with fans by doling out details on just the first three nights, teasing the faithful with musical eargasms to come.

Starting tonight (May 5th), Prince prepares rounds eight, nine, and 10 with three shows of his “21 Nite Stand” going down at LA’s The Forum. Joining him for the Friday and Saturday (5/6 and 5/7) shows will be Grammy award-winner Esperanza Spalding. The residency, a part of his larger “Welcome 2 America Tour”, has also seen the likes of Gwen Stefani, Chaka Khan, and Sheila E. drop by. For next week’s Friday the 13th extravaganza, though, space queen Janelle Monáe will be the featured guest, which should easily make for a funking freak-tacular good time!

Ticket prices range from $25 to $179 and are now on sale via Ticketmaster.

In related news, Prince has also announced a headlining appearance at this year’s Open’er Music Festival. Set for June 30-July 3 in Gdynia, Poland, the performance marks the musician’s only scheduled date in Europe for 2011. He’ll be sharing the bill alongside Coldplay, Pulp, The National, Primus, Big Boi, and more.
