The king of nonconformity, or should we say the prince, is hitting the road this winter with just himself and the ol’ ivories. Of course we’re talking about Prince, who earlier today announced the “Piano & A Microphone” tour, which will involve him, a piano, and–duh–a microphone. Of course we all know he can shred, which–according to press statement–is the exact reason he’s embarking on this challenge:

Why do this now? For several reasons. For starters it is a challenge. I rarely get bad reviews because this is something that’s been perfected 4 over thirty years. You have to try new things. With the piano it is more naked, more pure. You can see exactly what you get.

This will be a multinational tour, with stops in the U.K., Holland, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, Belgium and Spain. No schedule has been set yet, except the kick-off in Vienna on November 21, and the conclusion on December 22 in Brussels. Due to the attacks in Paris, the tour has been postponed until further notice. Stay tuned as more information is revealed.
