Prince announces one more night at Madison Square Garden on the heels of four extraordinary New York area shows last December and a sold-out show scheduled for Jan. 18.
He wowed fans and critics alike with phenomenal performances of his hits, b-sides and rarities coupled with his singular stage prowess. The new show will take place on the purple day of Monday, Feb. 7.
The New York Daily News raved, “Prince worthy of all royal accolades…The hit-friendly show had a kinetic confidence and racing pace that spoke of his singular place in pop history,” while the New York Times said “It’s easy to envision Prince as another Chuck Berry or James Brown, barnstorming for decades to come.”
The Star-Ledger encouraged fans to see the show with their review: “Any doubt that the diminutive singer could still bring the heat was put to rest at the explosive concert that kicked off the Welcome 2 America tour. Prince, remarkably, remains at the height of his powers. He’s a national treasure. Catch him while you can.”
It was also announced that the soulful melodies of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings would open the show on Jan. 18.
