I don't know about Madison Square Garden, but I'd say 10 of the 21 Nights in LA probably sold out (including the nights at the Troubadour and HOB). Certainly his last three shows at the Forum sold out. But unloading 17,000 tickets three nights a week for two months without any marketing is a BIG job, and I would have been shocked if it happened.

Prince At NYC’s MSG: Gone In 30 Minutes

Posted on Tuesday November 2, 2010 at 02:01 PM 4 |

How long did it take for Prince to sell out his two December gigs at New York’s Madison Square Garden? Turns out it took his Purpleness longer to announce the shows than sell the tickets.

Prince held a press conference at New Y...lo Theatre in mid-October to announce his “Welcome 2 America Live” tour. Although his Purpleness did not mention specific dates at that time, the tour, so far, consists of only five shows – Dec. 14-15 & 17 at New Jersey’s IZOD Center in E. Rutherford and Dec. 18 & 29 at MSG.

The shows went on sale Oct. 29 with fans gobbling up tickets for both Garden shows in 30 minutes, about half the run-time of the press op announcing the tour.
