INSIDERS INSIST PRINCE WILL B TOURING AUSTRALIA THIS YEAR ...

In Aussie newspaper the Herald-Sun yesterday there was an article on ppl who were rumored 2 tour downunder this year.Some of the rumored artists were Coldplay & Paul Macartney due 2 the A$ being good.But like I said the difference in words when it came 2 Prince was that they INSISTED when it came 2 Prince and rumored when it came 2 the other artists...So fingers & toes crossed 2 my fellow Aussie compats. Its been nearly 10 years between gigs and 20 since D & P tour...I've got a good feeling that this will happen... smile

It "sort of" makes sense. Audiences are down in the well served Prince areas, I think I'd take the show somewhere I hadn't been accessable for over a decade.

Though I think (in-case they're listening) they's sell out and make more money in London wink

Goodness, but I fear it will be another "rumour" and stay that way. But then again, he has toured everywhere and the $1 is good here. I suppose when I see Asia on a tour list, then I will get excited. BUT it breaks me he doesn't have a fan club so I get the best seats with my fellow prince fans (real deal fams)

If this actually happens, it will b in September. It has long been documented that Prince has been booked 2 open the new Sydney casino. Im guessing that a proper tour will b planned around that. But a stadium tour? I doubt it. He only just sold 2 shows each in Melbourne and Sydney in 13000 seat arenas last time he toured, unless hes only planning 1 stadium show in each city then maybe. But after all the rumours ive heard and information ive read, im about 80% sure he's coming, its just a matter of waiting until its all confirmed. But just remember, If u know Prince like i know him, ull know that he changes his mind every 5 mins!

I'm fairly the sure the Crown Casino was reopened last year and Stevie Wonder played for the opening, actually.

No, Crown casino is in Melbourne. The new Sydney casino is called The Star. Yes ure right it did reopen last year and Stevie Wonder did play there. But the actual redevelpoment isnt finished yet and the full official opening of The Star will b in Sep this year. Here is a link 2 the 1st casino rumour...

Where are you getting September from?

The only rumour I've seen regarding Star was about the reopening (still regarded as the "Official opening" on their website) in September 2011, which is the aforementioned one that Stevie played at.

I know there are other - individual - elements still to open, but I haven't seen anything about September 2012?

I'd be surprised if he scheduled a tour around that anyway, because it would be counter-productive. The Stevie Wonder tickets were extremely expensive, but the thing was that it was the only way you could see him in Australia. If he was doing a tour at the same time, I guarantee they would have had more trouble selling tickets.

I've given up on the Prince/Star rumours - but if it happens, I suspect it will be independent of a tour and probably with a minimal band line-up.

The current rumours seem to be more centred around the end of the year - late spring, early summer. I'd be surprised by a stadium tour as well, for a few reasons, and I certainly hope he doesn't go any bigger than arenas, but still, anything is good smile

(Also, someone recently pointed out to me that the latest rumour about a stadium tour was in an article about a stadium up in Queensland, so it's possible they just dropped his name as a 'rumoured artist' to get a bit more publicity confused)

I'm sure something's in the works, but what it is will no doubt remain a mystery until Prince is ready to reveal it wink

Im basing my theories on the information i provided with the links. The 1st 1 about the casino clearly states "next year" which is now this year. The next 1 with lady Gaga lists One Dimension as a possible act 2 b touring this year, and they have just been announced. The stadium tour rumour im really not sure about.

Lets just c what happens.

Bonnaroo lineup announced: Radiohead, Bon Iver, Skrillex and more

By Ray Rahman, EW.com
updated 4:49 PM EST, Tue February 14, 2012
Thom Yorke of Radiohead, shown here performing at the Glastonbury Festival in 2011, will perform at Bonnaroo.
Thom Yorke of Radiohead, shown here performing at the Glastonbury Festival in 2011, will perform at Bonnaroo.
STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Bonnaroo will take place June 7-10 this year
  • The biggest headliner is Radiohead, who is also performing at Coachella
  • Some of the fest's bigger acts include Skrillex, the Shins and Bon Iver

(EW.com) -- South by Southwest is right around the corner, and Coachella's already prepping its polo grounds for a two-weekend extravaganza, which means it's time to look forward to that third major warm-climate festival: Bonnaroo.

Manchester, Tennessee's, second most exciting tourist attraction (we see you, Old Stone Fort!) will take place June 7-10 this year, and its newly announced lineup is as impressive as ever. Perhaps the biggest headliner are Radiohead (who are also doing Coachella); also on the top of the masthead are the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Phish, who are no strangers to Bonnaroo's muddy festivities.

Some of the fest's bigger acts -- many of which you may remember from the Grammys -- include Skrillex, the Shins, Bon Iver, Bad Brains, the Civil Wars, comedian Aziz Ansari, and the reunited Beach Boys (hopefully without Foster the People, though they will be there too).

Of course, there's many, many more. Check out the full list of artists below:

Woah...just read the article again, and the middle of it has been re-written!

"Prince had suggested dates as early as May, but promoters were spooked by the fact Lady Gaga is touring at that time.

Gaga's shows, including five nights at Rod Laver Arena, is a hit.

Prince will announce the Australian tour this week."


So May might be a bust, but hopefully we'll get some actual confirmation of a tour this week! biggrin

If it's true, it seems like this "welcome 2 America" is really over and he's just touring wherever he feels like cry cry cry

But I think it's only a rumor. I think. And I'm NOT being bitter but which "credible" source has ever printed this article?

I'm not sure how a composite article that simply draws on previous articles (as indicated by the links scattered throughout the piece) qualifies as "confirmation".

As for "next week", the original article said that he'd confirm Aussie dates "this week", so hopefully we hear sooner rather than later, but of course, all of the articles that are emerging now are all referring back to that one Herald Sun article, so let's hope that reporter Nui Te Koha is seriously connected.

Umm....I think it's been that way for a while now...

That's not to say he won't be doing more US concerts this year, of course, but I think the "Welcome 2 America" tour, per se, is long over (either that, or it's the most sporadic tour in history).

But I think it's only a rumor. I think. And I'm NOT being bitter but which "credible" source has ever printed this article?

Rumours have been getting stronger and stronger down here. I know they are always swirling around, but it's been a while since I've seen this much media attention around a possible purple Aussie visit. That doesn't mean it's credible, but, for me, it means it's far more likely than it has been in a long time.

Fingers remain, as ever, crossed.

Touring in Australia does not mean no tour in the USA. Who knew he would tour Canada until a few seconds before it happened? He knows he skipped the midwest in 2011. He is getting such a great response on is performances that I cannot imagine he will not come back to us. But still, I am getting discouraged, greedy creature that I am.

Let me put this to you guys.

Since 2003 how many times has Prince toured the States....many many times.

Prince has not come to Australia since 2003 so I think all this bitching and complaining about ohhh when is Prince coming to the mid west or to the south or wotever is crap.

gonna get my passport sorted this week (there's another $150 on top of flights/accommodation/tickets...) - I haven't been over the ditch since last time Prince played....this time though I'm planning on visiting Melboing!! I hear it goes off there and I haven't been there yet...Sydney was great in '92 & '03....but Melbourne is cheaper to fly to from here smile

so, just gotta wait to see if its May or later on in the year (or dare I say it - closer to home, although I'd still be tempted to fly to aussie as well as NZ..I doubt he'd do more than 1 or 2 shows here in NZ...and they'd probably be just in Auckland - which is almost the same cost to fly to than Aussie from way down here in heartland NZ)...

I hope tickets aren't too expensive - I want to take in more than 1 show this time - and hopefully an aftershow....I missed out last time and there was just an afterparty...which was cool, but I've gotta pop my aftershow cherry!!!

Prince tour rumour update

By: grattan on Tue 27th Mar, 2012

Prince tour rumours appear every few months so when monger extraordinaire Nui Te Koha declared on the weekend that “Prince will announce the Australian tour this week” it was hard not to be a little sceptical.

After all the ‘news’ does come from a man who has assured us in the past that we’d be seeing Blink 182 and Limp Bizkit... 2010 BDO; Blink 182 and Prince at t... BDO 2012; and Bruce Springsteen at this...rand Final. However it looks like this time around he might actually be onto something – guess if you throw out enough predictions the odds are that eventually you’ll get one right.

Thanks to a the fanatical fans on the Prince forums we now know that one of Prince’s two touring keyboard players, Cassandra O’Neal, was asked on Twitter if she would be “going to Australia with Prince later this year?” and her answer “Yes hopefully….smile” does seem to lend some credibility to the idea that a tour is in the works.

However, O’Neal, who has been a member of Prince’s backing band since 2009, was unable to offer any further clues telling another fan that she has no idea if the tour will be heading to New Zealand.

Woohoo, that was me, I'm famous now. Somebody touch me, might rub off. lol

But on the downside, she doesn't know if they are coming to NZ sad

Congrats!! wink

Cassy's probably provided the most info thus far, though carefully worded so as not to commit to anything.

Joshy (and others) might be encouraged by the smiley that accompanied her response to Sam Norman earlier:

Also, DJ Rashida indicated yesterday that she might be coming "far down south soon" and gave a huge (also non-committal) smile when someone asked about her coming to Australia because Prince might be.

That's great news AFAIC, because, apart from Rashida being a great DJ anyway, why would Prince bring a DJ with him if he wasn't planning some aftershows? wink

(Ok, ok, so I'm stretching now, but still...)

Nothing confirmed yet though, of course...

We have been hearing for a while rumors of PRINCE touring Australia this summer and we are here to tell you....not so fast. Unfortunately.

We have been told that there are NO confirmed PRINCE concerts in Australia at this time.

If anything changes, we will keep you posted.-DocFB

Wow, thanks for the "new" info Dr FB. As I recall no one had postulated any confrmed concerts, that's what we are waiting for but whatever makes you feel like your finger is on the pulse.

Yeah confused I must admit, I couldn't help but think the same thing when I saw it.

I think it also confirms the theories that the Prince_NPG twitter account is run by the doc, because it basically said the same thing today, around the same time as his post.

But I tell ya...if Prince really did finally make himself a shiny new Twitter account for the sole purpose of telling us he's not coming to Australia...well that's just...

...sigh.

Crossed fingers are beginning to cramp.

Must remember...patience is a virtue.

Hopefully, the suggestion that an official announcement will be made this week holds true. If not, I'm putting this rumour back on ice until something new emerges.

Well thank God you were here to clear that up for us...

Seriously?? rolleyes

Nothing's been announced. Not offically, unofficially, real or fake. Nothing. Just rumours. Lots of rumours that reached somewhat of a climax on the weekend and, in fact, have since begun to diminish.

This is not like the Poland thread, where specific dates were announced semi-officially, causing all sorts of confusion. We know this is all just speculation, which is (basically) harmless...if a tad frustrating...

...and apparently difficult to follow.

probably better that he doesn't tour downunder in May - Gaga is touring then and there's only so much $ to go around (also he'd probably find it hard to work out booking the venues etc).... then of course Springsteen and Madge are touring this year too....

I'm optimistic that he'll be down here soon though......if he does come down here it'll be after the US/Euro summer I guess..... so my bets on around October (like he did in 2003) at least this will give me a bit of time to get my passport sorted and paid for...and work on scratching the $ together for flights/tickets/time off work etc etc....

I guess thats a silver lining huh...

my big 'suggestion' (Kiran I hope you are reading this and pass this on) would be for Prince to bring back his music club - so we can get preferential tickets like last time .....and a soundcheck/aftershow experience would be more than welcome!!

I wouldn't mind paying extra to get good seats or the 'VIP' treatment....I wasn't in a position to get the 'diamond experience' last time....this time I'd be willing

This makes me sad, as I wonder if they were trying to do something extra in Melbourne sad

But then, hopefully the delay in announcing is because they're still working on the 'extras' biggrin

In any case, I'm now signed up to the Chugg Entertainment newsletter just in case...

A mad scramble at one in the morning on the Internet to get tickets. That was for the Vancouver after show. I could not get into Victoria. In Vancouver, I did see some woman making out with the bouncer, if that helps any.

If this gets confirmed, how about releasing the fan's top 20 hits list but just the Australian and NZ data. Who knows. Maybe it would get back to the man himself. That's valuable market research for planning a tour If you want to throw the hardcore a few bones.

Well it's the next week & still no announcement. It would be a cruel joke to play on us if this was all a hoax.
pray Peace in the House of Prince.

The chucklehead who leaked the news jumped the gun. There are probably negotiations happening which could go either way. That's my groundless assumption anyway. I'd now give it 50/50.

Argh, let's hope it's more than a 50/50 chance!

as of this morning on triple m, Nui still insists that it is a sure thing and it will b announced this week, 4 a may tour................

until i hear an official announcement, then i know it will happen.

there r rumours every year about Aus tours that never eventuate, although this 1 has been very strong and public...

Hmm, even though it's nice to have some information on this front, I would rather Nui kept quiet on this one. History has shown Prince tour announcements where promoters, media, etc have jumped the gun, can sometimes 'spook' Prince, and he pulls out. Nui's remarks influenced the twitter post and Dr Funkenberry announcements trying to put the cat back into the bag. Nui has made his "statement" regarding this tour many times over, I think it's best for everyone involved if he says nothing more until an official announcement is made by either Prince or the promoters

Hmmm...well, either Showbiz has just jumped the gun as well, or they know something definite...

They've made it their facebook cover photo, so if they've got it wrong, they're going to look beyond sheepish.

According to an email I just received from them, there will be May dates for Allphones Arena (Sydney), Rod Laver Arena (Melbourne) and Entertainment Centre (Brisbane) announced soon.

I've heard so many rumours now, I don't know what to think, but one thing's for sure - I'm on that waitlist wink

^They're all big, high quality arenas, so quite similar. Hard to say which is "better".

fuuucckkk hurry up and announce the damn tour!!!!

only regret in 03 was i didnt take a week and see all his aussie shows.

not making that mistake again.

RIP 1958-2009 broken Michael Jackson

The PS3 is cheaper and thinner, but still won't play anything that made it famous. It's like if Prince was a game console.

Cool. I thought Rod Laver had great sound in 03, better than Sydney E.C but the location of the allphones might be the decider to go back to Melbourne.
