Prince announces night of three intimate (pricey) shows at venues to be determined

May 24, 2011 |  8:52 am


Seriously, if you haven't seen Prince yet, the Purple One is giving L.A. fans three more chances this week.

The singer -- whose Welcome 2 America Live "21-Night Stand" residency is in full swing -- announced he will play a batch of three intimate shows in one night on Wednesday at venues to be determined.  Tickets go on sale at noon Tuesday at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Tickets for his eleventh-hour double set at West Hollywood’s Troubadour went for $100 a pop, so no surprise fans can expect to drop major coin for these shows: Seats for his first jam, scheduled for 7 p.m., start at $200; at 10, the show dubbed Jazz Café goes for $100; and the midnight-hour charity show goes for $500.

Prince is still expected to play at the Forum on Friday through Sunday. Tickets at Ticketmaster and LiveNation.
