Is Prince getting ready for a tour?

September

purplerain460.jpgDearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. And it'd all be a whole lot easier getting through it if his royal purpleness Prince would do a nice long tour again.

Good news comes today from Pollstar.com, which says Prince is planning a series of dates in Chicago. Technically, only one date -- Sept. 24 at the United Center -- has been formally announced, but there's indications it could become a longer series of shows. And maybe a tour? We can only hope.

Pollstar says Prince is working with Rebuild The Dream, an organization that "brings ordinary people together to rebuild communities and work towards a brighter economic future." Not sure how nonpartisan that sounds, but we'll take Prince anyway we can get him.
