VIENNA, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Legendary musician Prince has announced a new piano and microphone only tour to close out 2015.
Starting Nov. 21 in Vienna, the new tour aptly titled "The Prince Spotlight: Piano & A Microphone Tour" comes right off the heels of the singers last concert series, "the HITNRUN Tour."
The tour which will be making various stops across Europe will feature intimate, solo Prince performances where he only yields a piano and microphone.
"Why do this now? For several reasons. For starters it is a challenge," he told Cultura, who broke the news. "I rarely get bad reviews because this is something that's been perfected for 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."
The Spanish-language publication also mentions that the Purple Rain singer will be performing in the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and The Netherlands before commencing Dec. 22 in Brussels. No exact dates or times have been announced.
