RETURN OF THE OLD PRINCE!

But they'll be played "in a newer way". Gulp...

PRINCE will shortly announce details of a arena tour, which will visit at least 38 cities.

The singer’s tour will kick off in Los Angeles on March 29. It will be the first time the performer has toured in six years.

The tour marks the 20th anniversary of ‘Purple Rain’, which he performed at the Grammys with Beyonce, reports the BBC. The star says he’ll be playing old classics on the tour.

“It’s older music, but it’s going to be played in a newer way,” he said.

Prince will coincide the tour with the release of his forthcoming album ‘Musicology’.
