Prince Announces Show This Weekend at Fox Theater Oakland

After teasing a major announcement, the Twitter account for the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA has confirmed that Prince & & 3RDEYEGIRL will be playing a last-minute show this Saturday, March 15. Tonight’s revelation continues a trend of last-minute show announcements from The Purple One.

UPDATE -11:24 p.m. PT: While the Saturday show sold out in minutes, it appears additional shows are about to be added. Keep an eye on the Ticketmaster pages for Prince and Fox Theater for any additional show(s).

In case you missed it, The Purple One made quite a splash last week playing surprise shows at the Hollywood Palladium on both Friday and Saturday nights, with the Saturday gig running over three hours and featuring over 50 songs.

As noted by Vintage Vinyl News, Prince hit the stage just after 10 p.m. and “55 songs (some in shortened versions & not including snippets placed in the middle of songs), five encores and 3 hours and 40 minutes later, the show was finally over.” Over the course of the evening Prince performed six of Purple Rain’s nine tracks, six tunes from Sign O’ The Times and a slew of other tunes. We’ve seen some epic setlists in our day but this one just might take the cake:
