Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL will perform in Louisville, Ky., next week for the first U.S. stop on the Hit & Run tour, promoter Live Nation announced today via press release. The show takes place on March 14 and is in celebration of Louisville native and 3RDEYEGIRL drummer Hannah Welton. A venue will be announced at a later date.
Last year, Prince and the band launched the Hit & Run tour in the U.K. with a series of spontaneous shows announced via Twitter. The group, which released two chart-topping albums, Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum, in 2014, played legendary venues like Electric Ballroom and Shepherd's Bush Empire, sometimes performing up to three shows a night.
A portion of proceeds from the Louisville show will be donated to local charities. Tickets go on sale next Monday (March 9) at 10 a.m. EST.
