Prince’s ‘Welcome 2 Chicago’ now up to 2 shows

SHARE Prince’s ‘Welcome 2 Chicago’ now up to 2 shows

We’re up to two. Just 19 more to go.

After announcing one Prince concert, Sept. 24 at Chicago’s United Center, now a second show has been added “due to overwhelming demand” — an impressive feat since tickets for the first show have only been available in pre-sales thus far.

The second show will be Sept. 25.

Tickets for both shows go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Thursday via

Fans have wondered if these “Welcome 2 Chicago” shows would grow into a sizable residency. Prince previously has performed lengthy runs — some up to 21 nights — in London, Los Angeles and New York.

The United Center’s schedule doesn’t have a lot of room for that. But does anyone want to bet we’ll at least get three?
