“He had the crowd panting as soon as he hit the stage…His voice, guitar, and dance moves kept astonishing …it was unbelievably great.” (Izod Centre, New Jersey 17th Dec 2010, opening night of his US Tour) Rolling Stone Magazine

Prince, one of the most prolific and groundbreaking artists of our time whose recorded music, live performances and powerful artistry have affected music and pop culture like no other, has declared a string of shows across Europe this Summer and on Saturday 30th July Malahide Castle in Dublin will be going purple.

‘Incredible’….’mesmerising’…’wildly entertaining’….’electrifying’….these are the words uttered breathlessly by anyone, fan or pundit, who has been lucky enough to see a Prince concert in recent years. His record breaking ‘21 Nights’ series of shows in London’s O2 in 2007 saw him re-emerge as the musical phenomenon he truly is. Last December his first major US tour since 2004 kicked off – rarely do so many superlatives get used to describe one so small. He has been wooing audiences from state to state performing his extensive back catalogue of greatest hits with dazzling energy and showmanship with a setlist that includes all his classics; Kiss, Purple Rain, U Got that Look, Rasberry Beret, 1999, Cream, Alphabet St., When Doves Cry, Diamonds and Pearls, Little Red Corvette, Let’s Go Crazy, Paisley Park, If I was Your Girlfriend, Adore, Take Me With U, Housequake, Nothing Compares to U, Scandalous and so many more…

Prince gave strong advice at a press conference when announcing his plans for his US tour; “Bring your friends, bring your children, and bring foot spray, because it’s going to be funky.” His European fans should too pay heed. Conducting his famously tight band with a flick of the hand or a stomp of the foot, jumping from piano to guitar with equal virtuosity, and busting moves like its…well 1999….no matter what genre he is bending; rock, pop, funk, R&B, jazz, hip-hop..he is the ultimate Master of Ceremonies.
