Prince Announces First "Welcome 2 America" Dates

Text

It was a little over a week ago that Prince announced plans for his Welcome 2 America tour, and now His Purpleness has bestowed some dates upon us.

Prince also revealed that he’ll be playing a custom-built Fender Stratocaster made of solid gold during the shows. Because that’s the kind of thing Prince does. The guitar will be auctioned off at the end of the tour to benefit the Harlem Children’s Zone.
