Prince Adds 4th Garden Show; Tickets on Sale Sat., Jan 15th

Prince at NJ's Izod Center last month.

Prince is bringing his "Welcome 2 America" show to Madison Square Garden one more time, on Monday, Feb. 7th. Tickets go on sale here Saturday, Jan. 15th at 10 a.m.

Prince played two shows at New Jersey's Izod Center and two at the Garden, and has another Garden appearance on Jan. 18th (said to be sold out).

His "Welcome 2 America" concerts have been getting wide acclaim (including from this reviewer). The shows feature a selection of hits and lesser-known songs from throughout his career, and Prince has been including opening acts who have been inspirations to or influences on him, including Cassandra Wilson, Maceo Parker, and Larry Graham of Graham Central Station, as well as the comedian Sinbad.

It's a fun, funky show, and you never know when Prince will tour again. So if you're interested in seeing him in concert, get your tickets when they go on sale Saturday.
