Prince Whips Out Gold-Plated Guitar, Announces New Tour


The singer-songwriter put on his black velour jacket and took the stage of the Apollo Theatre to tell the world about his Welcome 2 America Tour, which will kick off sometime, somewhere this December. The concerts will include jazz and funk stalwarts such as Maceo Parker, Cassandra Wilson, and Graham Central Station. "Bring foot spray because it's going to be funky," he said. "No two shows will be the same." [HR]
