Pop Legend Prince announced last night at a press conference at New York’s Apollo Theater that he and his band, The New Power Generation, are kicking off a tour this December along with a number of other artists. Joining Prince on the trek will be funk, R&B and jazz artists including Maceo Parker, Janelle Monae, Mint Condition, Esperanza Spalding, Lalah Hathaway, Sheila E., Cassandra Wilson and Graham Central Station. Dubbed “Welcome 2 America,” during the press conference Prince said he will serve as master of ceremonies for “a series of events that will begin on a purple day in December, in the year 2010.” “Welcome 2 America” is “best described as what we’ve all been waiting for.” He tells an audience to “bring friends, bring your children and bring foot spray ’cause it’s gon’ be funky.”
