Prince is going on tour without ever leaving Los Angeles.  On March 28, the Purple One will play three venues to promote his new website, LotusFlow3r.com.

He'll also be pushing his two new CDs, "Lotusflow3r" and "Mplsound," plus "Elixer," which introduces his new protégé Bria Valente.  All three are available for download via the website or $11.98.

Prince will play Nokia Theater L.A. Live (doors open at 5:30 p.m.), the Conga Room (doors are 8 p.m.) and Club Nokia (doors are 11:30 p.m.). The key words here are "doors open." As anyone who has ever seen Prince knows, he may show up on time or he may show up 2 hours later, but it will be worth the wait.

Tickets for each show are $77 and go on sale on Sunday via Ticketmaster.  He will perform a full set at each venue. By the way, the venues are all in the same area in downtown L.A., an entertainment sports complex dubbed L.A. Live so fans can easily make all three shows if they wish.
