Prince announces concerts you can't enjoy

Tbdprince050907 We remember, much to our disappointment, when Prince pretty much said he was done touring. Well, that doesn’t apply to our friends across the pond, because the purple one will play 21 shows in London this summer — but no more, because he has to study the Bible.

Prince, who is a Jehovah’s Witness, says his study will prevent him from going to other European cities, but to pay tribute to his album 3121, tickets for the Earth Tour, which begins Aug. 1, will be just $62. “Last time I was here, a lot of people didn’t get to see me, so we are trying to make it affordable for everybody,” he said.

And while affordability is relative, fans can still gamble on which show they go to, because Prince plans on changing the playlist nightly. That’s great, because we’ll see exactly none of them. Sigh.
