You saw him allegedly smash a Roots member's guitar this month on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon." And you no doubt heard about his stunning late-night concert at South by Southwest last weekend.
Now Prince is taking his revitalized live show on the road for a West Coast club tour set to launch in mid-April.
Appearing Wednesday night in a video chat with the blogger Dr. Funkenberry, the members of Prince's new backing band 3rd Eye Girl said the trek will kick off April 15 in Vancouver and wrap up with gigs May 7 and 8 at the City National Grove of Anaheim.
Other cities in the jaunt -- which comes ahead of Prince's visit in July to the Montreaux Jazz Festival -- include Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Tempe, Ariz., and San Diego.
Ticket information is expected in the next week or so, according to Dr. Funkenberry.
