Prince tour 2014

I think Prince should do a good sized tour in 2014-15. It would be in stadiums and be average sized. It would take him to the prime continents of Europe , North America, Asia,and Australia.

It would be a huge set packed with tons lighting,3-4 HD screens,a unigue set design, surround soun, and lasers. Maybe Lenny Kravitz would open for him. Is Shenna Easton still big in Europe?

Maybe Cameo or Lakside. Dunno if George Clinton or The Time would sell anymore. The tour would begin June 7th in Russia on Prince's birthday.

I was thinking about flames and pyro. But Prince never does that. Don't know if he doesn't care or is scared of the pops. Well he can do without but it would be so fitting to have a curtain of falling fireworks that's purple during Purple Rain. Big show. VH1 would cover opening night as well as Access Hollywood. There"d be commercials, billboard, Many people do the end but the Houston, Las Vegas, Hamburg,and Seoul shows would be filmed for DVD-VCD. Maybe do a telivised concert for Christmas in Tel-Aviv.

I've heared nothing from Sheena Easton in a looong time, so no, she's not big in Europe anymore. (If she ever was. Just a girl with a few hits.)
And what makes you think he'd sell tix in places like India or Thailand? Does anyone there even know who he is?

Prince is one of the biggest artists in Thwe World. They've got TV. Michael Jaackson sold good in India.

ANd as for Glastonbury I was gonna include it but ti's not very big of a city is it? Generally I included cities of 3 million and up > SOme of them were smaller cause they were out in the middle of nowhere.

Generally I included cities of 3 million and up > SOme of them were smaller cause they were out in the middle of nowhere. I think it's pretty safe to assume that SuperSoulFighter was referring to the Glastonbury Festival (one of the best and longest-running music festivals in the world).....not the town! Mind you, SSF's ponderance over whether Prince could sell in India or Thailand is itself somewhat short-sighted. For the record, the kind of tour you are want would never work on the schedule you have proposed - you just couldn't take that size show from one country/city to the next. Furthermore, only 1 night in these massive cities? Prince sold out 21 nights last time he played London! Playing just one night in most of the cities you mention just wouldn't be economically viable. The extent of this tour, both geographically and production-wise would have to be played out over a longer period with longer stays in some of the cities. Prince is well-known for his hard work, but this would probably be too much for even him!

All I know is I hope he scales that band back. It's a cluttered mess. Yeah I would pay to see it if he came to philadelphia but it's too much. The original NPG had just enough horns. Trumpet, sax & trombone maybe.

This is a great idea - if you want to kill Prince. 36 shows over three months. You have two months that have 18 or 19 shows each. Plus the traveling. This a tour for a young person. Not Prince.

Actually I scaled it down. It's not in all cities and stadiums should have enough capacity. I give hime 2...3 days rest somtimes. Ieven gave hime a couple of months between legs. My iteneror is basically cities over 3 million,cities out in the middle of nowhere, and very big fan cities. The first you understand but in the middle nowhere(St.Louis,Kansas City) cause there's no other shows for a thousand miles. So every oone in that radius come it should fill up. Also hotbeds. Not sure about France but Germany is a big fan of Prince and most artists. So I did 3 shows in that country. Sweden,Japan,California, and Texas would be my nex guesses. Maybe I should ad another Sweden-Norway and Japan. Charlotte I was debating but it's a good distance from any other gigs.

What do you mean capacity. If Prince does stadiums 30,000 and up it should be enough seats. Only places I could conceive would be New York, London, and Tokyo where he might need 2 or more shows. All those cities have stadiums over 80,000 ,which is 4-6 nights at an arena. He did 21 nights at Londons arena. That was the only city on the Earth Tour. For instance here in Houston he did 2 shows. That would fit right into Minute Maid(40,000) Park. Janet Jackson for instance played 2 years on tour. It would make money with 80,000 seats. Plaus Prince is a big artist. He could charge $120 for the best seats. Madonna $400.

Well I wanted a city in Belerus. Thought Kiev was.

Don't know should it be a central or endstage. Either way I think there should be runways bringing Prince closer to the audience. Least stending halfway back. Maybe one that goesall the way around.

a) This is just about the most unrealistic tour plot I've ever seen.

b) Ontario is not a city.
