Prince Is Coming to Marquee Theatre

Categories: Announcements

prince-2ICP_o_tn.jpg
Dearly beloved / We are gathered here today / To announce that Prince is coming to the Marquee Theatre for four shows over two nights / But also, to get through this thing called "life" / Electric word, life / It means forever and that's a mighty long time.

Update: Tickets are now available from Luckyman Online. Each night will feature two shows from Prince, an early and late show, and tickets are available for $277.

Folks, the time has come to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka. Or, uh, Tempe Tempe Lake.* Because Prince is coming to Marquee Theatre.

*The staff at Up on the Sun does not actually think you should enter Tempe Town Lake. At all.


Following a bananas set at SXSW -- which found him covering Michael Jackson and returning to the stage for six, count 'em, six encores -- news site Drfunkenberry states that Purple One and 3rd Eye Girl (Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford Welton, and Ida Nielsen) have announced a small run of club dates dubbed the Live Out West tour, which finds the group hitting the Marquee Theatre in Tempe for four shows on Tuesday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 1.

2013 looks to be a big year for Prince: A whole bunch of new material from Prince and 3rd Eyed Girl (another in a long line of Prince-affiliated lady singers), including the awesome single "Screwdriver," is available from at 3rd Eye Girl's site, a stunning reversal from Prince's proclamation that the Internet was bad. The increased activity could lead to a new album, but at this point, we're just happy to have a little face time with the guy.

Ticket info when we have it.

Wallets have spoken.  Tickets went on sale 3.5 hours ago and not one of the 4 Prince shows at the Marquee are sold out yet.  I can go to Luckymanonline and pull up tickets for any of those shows.

PHOENIX magazine -- we don't all have friends who overhear stuff at Green Day shows, I guess. : )

Oh for the love of God! I was all excited that I was willing to pay $100. $250? come on! ... that's absurd (plus the last show is two hours after the first ... so the early show can't be an epic 3 hour show!). Side Note: A few years back Prince did a residency in Vegas (in a smaller venue the the Marquee) and tickets were only something like $100 or $120 ... so let's hope the birdied was talking  Rubles or BitCoins.

I have been to a few different sites and it looks as though tickets are averaging $250.

I'm guessing I will sell everything I own and eat Ramen for the next year, just to go.

probably $50 a ticket, is my guess. Plus that $3.50 purchase fee and the $7.50 "We're not sure what this fee if for, but you're going to pay it" fee.

4 nights = 2000 tix a night = 8000 tix = Prince is ballin'.

I know it's not the 80's anymore, but that seems like much too small a venue for Prince.
