Prince performed at the 10th annual ESSENCE Festival in 2004. This year, he'll grace us all with a performance at the 20th annual event in New Orleans in July. This is one ESSENCE Fest not to be missed!

Prince and 3rdEyeGirl will kick off their U.S. tour March 14 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Things are about to heat up this spring as Prince and his band 3rdEyeGirl are set to hit the road on a U.S. tour. 

According to Rolling Stone, the Essence Festival alum has announced his Hit & Run tour which kicks off May 14 in Louisville, Kentucky. 

The tour mimics the idea of Prince's 2014 tour in the UK, which saw him performing two or three shows per night at some of London's major venues, often announcing dates on Twitter with little notice. 

Last year Prince released his solo LP Art Official Age as well as his debut album with 3rdEyeGirl, Plectrumelectrum.

Fan can purchase tickets for the Louisville show on Monday, March 9 at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. A potion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit Louisville-based charities.
