Prince to play two shows tonight at the Troubadour; adds 5 shows to Forum run

May 11, 2011 |  2:50 pm

The Purple One's love affair with L.A. just got a lot more interesting. If you've got the green. 

Prince will play two shows at the Troubadour tonight. The first is at 7 p.m. and the other is at 11 p.m. Tickets are $100 each and went on sale when the gig was announced a little after 2 p.m. today. There are no hard tickets, and no ins-and-outs. Also: No cameras.

This earth-shattering news comes in addition to the announcement that Live Nation has just added five shows to his extended stay at the Forum this month. The Forum shows are billed as Welcome 2 America Live "21 Night Stand"  and went on sale today.

The shows are slated to start Friday  and continue -- on and off -- through May 29. Tickets are available at Live Nation and Ticketmaster. The dates are listed after the jump. There's no word yet from Live Nation on whether the Troubadour gigs count against Prince's 21-night stay. Prince has announced 15 shows thus far at the Forum

Prince's latest Welcome 2 America Live "21 Night Stand" dates at the Forum:

Friday, Saturday, May 27, May 28  and May 29. Tickets are on sale now.

According to a statement from Live Nation, additional dates are to be announced soon.
