Prince announces US tour with new artists including Janelle Monae

Singer promises shows will be 'funky'

Prince has announced he will tour the US starting this December with a host of new artists.

The singer will hit the road with the likes of Janelle Monae and Mint Condition, while Prince and the New Power Generation will play at each show.

Prince is expected to be master of ceremonies at each gig, reports

“If you’ve been to one of my shows, then you know what time it is,” he told a press conference at New York‘s Apollo Theatre yesterday (October 14). “You need to come early and come often because every time we play it’s always something new. I got a lot of hits. Bring friends, bring children, and bring foot spray because it’s going to be funky.”

The exact dates and show line-ups are yet to be confirmed.
