UPDATED: Prince confirmed for Croke Park
As predicted by hotpress.com, Prince will be joining the lineup of summer concerts scheduled in Dublin's Croke Park stadium.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 27 Feb 2008
Prince will play Croke Park this June 16, joining already-confirmed summer headliners Celine Dion, Westlife and Neil Diamond in GAA headquarters.
A huge venue, but eminently packable given the 21 shows His Royal Purpleness played last year in London’s 20,000-capacity O2 Arena. Most of the sets were over three-hours long and – hooray! – jam-packed with hits.
It'll be his first visit here since November 2002 when he played an absolute stormer in The Point Theatre.
The gig goes on sale on March 5 at 8am, with tickets costing €66.50.

The credits may read – “produced by PRINCE and arranged, composed and performed by (insert stupid squiggle symbol),” but I think we can treat this album as the real return to the fray by the Purple Poet of Pervdom himself.

No, the purple one hasn't renounced his symbol or his completely independent stance with regard to recording. Instead this is a collection of previously unreleased material, which is being billed as the last Prince release on Warner Brothers.
