Prince Announces Residency in the Windy City

Prince is coming to the Windy City, and there’s no telling how long he’s staying. The Purple One announced an upcoming residency at the United Center in Chicago starting on Sept. 24, but so far no additional dates have been confirmed.

The artist announced in a press release (via Idolator) that the shows will be called ‘Welcome 2 Chicago.’ A commercial for the tour notes that Prince will play all his hits and promises “a different experience every night.” Presumably, additional shows will be rolled out once the first concert sells out. The dates will support Rebuild The Dream, an organization that helps low-income communities.

Tickets for the opening night go on sale at Live Nation on Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. When Prince played a 21-date residency in Los Angeles last year, most tickets were just $25, but this time prices start at $49.50, with the most expensive seats going for $149.50. Prince will perform in the round with a stage shaped like “The Love Symbol,” the unpronounceable icon the singer used as his name for a period during the ’90s when he was referred to as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince.

Fans can probably expect a surprise cameo or two during the residency. Prince has taken to inviting guests on stage during shows in recent years, including Gwen Stefani during his L.A. run and Kanye West in Sweden.
