Pop icon Prince has such a penchant for grand musical concepts and ideas that his eccentricity is now a large part of why he’s a household name. That his 34-date “Welcome 2 America” tour was as epic as it was should come as no surprise: his shows often clocked in at an impressive three hours, and were supported by secret opening acts that included Esperanza Spalding, Janelle Monáe, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Cee-Lo Green, and Chaka Khan, among others.
On November 25th, the groundbreaking musician will take his ambitious tour north of the border on the “Welcome 2 Canada” tour, meaning that fans in every province between Quebec and British Columbia will have a chance to catch a show for the first time since 2002.
Such an occasion begs for celebration, so we’ve compiled a playlist of Ultimate Prince songs to help get you in the mood. Many of these could be played in your city, so don’t forget to grab tickets while you still can.
