Well, it is past early next week...and no news. He probably will play Australia, but he could easily change his mind.

The official Prince Australian tour announcement still hasn’t come this week as predicted, but it seems we may be one step closer in piecing together the puzzle. If a tweet from Inpress Mag is correct, Prince will announce shows at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Rumours suggest the tour dates will run throughout late July/August.

The tour is now expected to be announced by Chugg Entertainment next week on April 12th. A number of Facebook groups have also marked down next Thursday as the announcement date.

This tour will be just the third time Prince has toured the country in a career that has spanned over 3 decades.

The first time Prince visited our shores was in 1992 when he played 2 Shows at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, 5 shows at Flinders Park Tennis Centre in Melbourne, then another 5 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre before winding things up with a 6th show at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

On his return in 2003, the guitar genius and master of melody only played 2 shows in Melbourne, 2 shows in Sydney and 1 show in Brisbane.

Prince was first rumoured to be coming to Australia to play the Big day Out Festival in 2012. However, this failed to eventuate when Prince pulled out of the deal, leaving the promoters with all sorts of problems.

Presented by: Van Egmond Group and Chugg Entertainment

Prince, one of music's most iconic superstars and true rock'n'roll royalty, will tour Australia in May 2012 performing his greatest hits. This will be only the 3rd time Prince has toured Australia. He last performed here in 2003.

Prolific, influential and innovative, Prince is one of the most private of all music super stars. He lets his music speak for itself - and it does.

Singles such as Purple Rain, 1999, Controversy, When Doves Cry, Diamonds and Pearls, Nothing Compares 2 U, Kiss, Little Red Corvette, Cream and Raspberry Beret are songs deeply etched into the hearts of a generation and seamlessly tie together pop, funk, folk, and rock.

His recorded catalogue is vast, diverse and massively popular. He has sold over one-hundred million albums, with ten platinum albums and over thirty top ten singles to his credit. From thirty-three nominations he has won seven Grammy Awards, and his songs for movies have earned him a Golden Globe (The Song of the Heart from Happy Feet) and an Academy Award (Purple Rain).

While his second album Prince went platinum, but it was the album 1999 that was the real breakthrough for Prince. It sold over three million albums. This success, however, was nothing compared to the success of Purple Rain. This album made him a superstar, selling over ten million copies in the US alone and topping the charts for a phenomenal twenty-four weeks.

Since then he has boldly experimented with sounds and styles, writing and producing with great diversity and ambition. He has written hits for and mentored the careers of other artists, and founded his own recording studio and label.

But what propels him into the upper echelons of greatness - and Rolling Stone include him in its list of the Greatest Artists of All Time - are his legendary stage shows. His concerts are flamboyant and thrilling, and he matches brilliant musicianship with cutting edge presentation.

Prince will be bring his huge full scale arena production to Australia which will include ground breaking technology in a complete 360 degree stage (in the round).

Notoriously reclusive and reserved in media interviews, Prince takes to the stage with sex-appeal and charisma that can reach the far corners of the even the largest arena.

From moments of great intimacy to exuberant solos, he is a live performer rare in his ability to hold each and every member of the audience enthralled.

TOUR DATES*:
Fri 11 May - Allphones Arena, Sydney
Mon 14 May - Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
Fri 18 May - Brisbane Entertainment Centre
*Ticketek is selling for the above venues only.

Australia get ready to rock!!!!

Good to see he's back out on tour...

Whats up with the promo video snippet about him marrying his back up singer? Thats an odd choice to add to the video.

Cool drawing to accompany the tour although he kinda looks like he's got girls hair wink

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.
