Prince Announces Intimate 'Piano & a Microphone' Performance at Paisley Park
Prince has announced a two-set concert date at Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minn. Called the Piano & a Microphone Gala Event, it will feature Prince solo.
The two performances are scheduled to take place at Prince’s recording complex on Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. CST. Ticket sales began on Saturday here.
The concept for the show had been planned for dates in 2015 at Konzerthaus in Vienna, Austria. According to a press release, Prince postponed those dates after resale prices for tickets soared on secondary ticketing outlets -- even before tickets were officially put on sale. He decided to reroute the residency to his own Paisley Park.
In an effort to prevent resale this time around, tickets will not be delivered for the Paisley Park performances. Guests who purchase tickets will be required to show a photo ID to get into the show.
In December, Prince released HITNRUN Phase Two, which was first available for streaming and purchase through Tidal.
