Jump straight to Prince tickets >
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Grammy Award winner and funk icon Prince announced that he will be taking his high energy show and Minneapolis sound back to Canada starting in November. The “Welcome 2 Canada” Tour will cross the entire country with performances in 11 arenas starting with a two-night stand in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on November 25th and November 26th.
The 11-date Canadian run will be the artist’s first since a May-June trek through Canada back in 2002.
The tour will end on December 17th in Victoria, British Columbia after hitting the cities of Halifax, Montreal, Kanata, London, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver.
The dates are an extension of Prince’s “Welcome 2 America” tour which took the artist to 14 cities in the United States from December 15, 2010 through May 29, 2011 for a total of 34 shows. A second European leg of the tour kicked off a series of 23 shows back on June 30, 2011 that ran until August 17, 2011. The tour to date has hit major cities such as New York City, Los Angeles, Oakland, Charlotte, Sacramento, San Jose, Paris, Amsterdam, Oslo, Dublin, Copenhagen, Budapest and Zurich.
Average ticket prices on the secondary market for Prince’s recent trek through America and Canada can be seen below. The most expensive shows to date have been in Montreal, New York and – surprisingly – Charleston, SC.
