Prince– Yes, That Prince– Is Playing NY Nightclub City Winery This Month


Prince– the artist known as– is coming to NYC in like two weeks. Are you ready? He’s booked six shows at the smallish, very cool City Winery for his NPG horns and artists Shelby J. and Liv Warfield. Who? Right. But you know Prince played City Winery in Chicago last month. This is a coup for Michael Dorf, who’s even staged Prince tribute shows in the past. I’m told His Highness will play at least one show, but my guess is he’ll be at most of them. And you know, from past experience we know that Prince Rogers Nelson likes the post- midnight hours. So those midnight shows from August 20-25th will be in high demand. The summer has just taken a very positive turn!
