LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — 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, will bring his extraordinary live production to Canada with his spectacular tour,WELCOME 2 CANADA . This is Prince’s first multi-city national Canadian tour since 2002. Tickets for Prince go on sale beginning November 4th at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.
Prince kicked off the Welcome 2 America tour in the New York area in December 2010 with a celebrated six night stand which received tremendous acclaim by fans and critics every night. Prince followed up with three intimate nights in Oakland and six special nights in the Carolinas where he performed many of his fan favorite mega-hits which had fans in every market screaming and dancing for more. The extraordinary run of shows continued with stops in Sacramento, Fresno and San Jose, with more than a quarter of a million fans joining him in Los Angeles. Prince welcomed a wide range of guest artists throughout his multi-hour sets, including Chaka Khan, Alicia Keys, Larry Graham, Sheila E., Mary J Blige and many more.
The Welcome 2 America tour has been embraced with rave reviews in every stop made across the country. ”He had the crowd panting as soon as he hit the stage…It was unbelievably great. Do you go to a Prince show for predictable consistency? Ah, no. You go for moments of divinely inspired madness — and last night, he delivered as many of those as a fan could expect.” – Rolling Stone
The New York Daily News raved, “Prince is worthy of all royal accolades…The hit-friendly show had a kinetic confidence and racing pace that spoke of his singular place in pop history,” while the New York Times said “It’s easy to envision Prince as another Chuck Berry or James Brown, barnstorming for decades to come.” The San Francisco Chronicle raved “spinning, strutting and swaying in his towering heels as if no time had passed since the days he dominated MTV with his angular suits and perfectly sculpted hair… neither his fantastic voice nor his dynamic legs showing any signs of slowing down.

The unforgettable Temptations are portrayed by The Legacy, comprised of Greg Lassiter, Talmadge Pearsall, EJ, Doc Hutchinson and Grady Harrell, Jr. They take guests back to the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s by demonstrating passionate, sultry harmonies and impeccably smooth choreography. The highly-talented Stacey Whitton will portray the Billboard-topping Martina McBride during the fall months.
“We take pride in bringing only A-team tribute artists take our stage and the best word I can think of to describe this new lineup for the fall is ‘outstanding,’” said Chris Beattie, regional general manager for Legends in Concert. “Audiences were blown away by world-renowned tribute artists Leo Days, Eric Martin and Carmen Romano back in the spring and we’re elated to have them return to our stage this fall.”
The Legends in Concert Myrtle Beach fall performance schedule is as follows:
Sept. 12 – Sept. 17
