Tickets for the five NYC-area "Welcome 2 America" Prince shows go on pre-sale Friday morning at 10am (password = ALIST or lights or guitar), and general sale Saturday, October 30th at 10AM, online and at Apollo Theater's box office. Prices for individual tickets range from $26.65 to $200.70 for the shows which are taking place at Madison Square Garden and the Izod Center.

The shows are being advertised as "a different experience every night." Special guests will include Maceo Parker, Janelle Monae, Mint Condition, Esperanza Spalding, Cassandra Wilson, Lalah Hathaway and Sheila E, but details on what makes each night different don't seem to be available.

the 60 dollars seats are the 400 section. what on earth are the 27 dollar seats? or are they not for MSG?

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 10:11 AM

413 was a $27 dollar one

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 10:15 AM

pulled $200 floor seats cause i forgot to pick a price range- searching again

I was curious and the best Ticketmustard could do was Loge Level - Sec 65 $200 for one seat.. and it took 15 minutes to watch the animated spinning ball pretending that their servers are going to implode.

Thanks for the password. Got great seats but paid $200 ea.

Posted by VD | October 29, 2010 10:22 AM

426, Row D...$61 and change per ticket

Surprised my wife who is home sick today...she is so excited and hopefully feeling better now :)

i got sick seats, fuck yeah

15min. wait for $61 seats in Section 420...."Hey Bud, let's party!"

Would also like to know where those $27 seats were -- outside the hot dog stand in the lobby?

According to the seating chart the stage is in the shape of the TAFKAP "symbol," I'm taking that as a small sign that Prince will actually be performing at this little ticky-tacky soul review of his.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 10:45 AM

10:45...of course Prince will be performing!

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 10:49 AM

I would guess sections 408-419 are the cheap seats...I pulled up 413 which was in that range of price.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 10:51 AM

got section 427 row a. OH HELL YES.

Thank you for the password. Bought tickets for both nights at the Garden.

section 42 for 2 folks. I'm pretty excited

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 11:32 AM

Got a $92 ticket Row A in Sec 340, with an end stage it would be far but it's in the round so I'm happy with it.

Thanks for the pre-public passwords for purchasing those Prince tickets.

Posted by DeMaurice Smith | October 29, 2010 1:25 PM

Seats in the 200s, far end, row A, for the second-biggest price, just over $100--was the whole floor and all of the 100s $200 apiece?

Seriously, thank you so much for the passwords. Grabbing these tix made my day and now I have something awesome to look forward to. Cheers BV!

Prince is gonna kill it

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 2:50 PM

No doubt he plays guitar better than 99% of the bands mentioned on BV. This is not a rip at most bands, it's just that Prince is THAT GOOD!

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 3:47 PM

yeah i mean Prince may not be underrated as a pop star... he is Prince afterall, but his guitar skills are EXTREMELY underrated. i think the general public assumes he has session musicians doing all the crazy stuff or something. but like every album up until purple rain is ALL him.

i can't wait for this show... never seen him before but I hear he always brings it.

Can't wait for this!

On the last tour I was cheap and bought tickets to watch it projected in a movie theater. The theater was packed, people dancing in the aisles, and one of the more amazing performances that screen ever witnessed. Let's get fucking crazy in the rafters.

Posted by anonymous2 | October 29, 2010 4:20 PM

you guys know that The Time was really just Prince playing everything and Morris Day on vocals? Then when the Time played live he'd hire a bunch of chumps to do everything Prince did. And then in Purple Rain he had the Time be his rivals. Which is funny because it's basically Prince vs. Prince. Which is also funny because it's basically saying that in the end, the only thing better than lesser Prince, is Prince.

Prince is a sociopath.

that funky bastard is going to make me spend a lot of money

Prince is a masterful musician, singer, songwriter and performer. He's way beyond popstar, and a masterful living legend with skills as sharp as they were in his 20's.
