As card holding members of the Prince fan club - well, we own his albums, have epically awesome Prince T-shirts from when he used to be called Symbol, drop Gett Off every time we DJ and have watched Purple Rain a zillion times (that sex scene - euggghhhh) - we are goddamn excited by this news.
What we are not excited about is how many people - whom we have never heard mention Prince once in their lives, by the way - we are going to have to listen to for the next month banging on about how much they have always lurrrrrved him. Yawn. Also, if one more person tells us that they were at The Basement or wherever the hell it was when he played a tiny secret show last time he was in Aus, we will cry. By all accounts, it seems that the whole of Sydney was there. Strange that they all fitted into such a small venue.
Anyway, if you want to join us in the shit-fight for tickets, they go on sale on Monday, April 16 from Ticketek.
Prince performs the following shows:
May 11 - Allphones Arena, Sydney
May 14 - Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
May 18 - Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Maybe now is finally time for us to have that massive Prince dress-up party we have been threatening for ages. Ps, if you're thinking about coming as high-waisted-pant-high-heel-wearing-topless-and-oiled-up-Prince-from-the-90s, don't bother as there are already fights going on in the Bobbysix office about who gets the honour of that particular look.
