I'm not expecting Prince to roll out a tour on the scale of those of his Purple Rain days, but considering it's been two decades since the release of Sign 'O' the Times (Paisley Park), a live rendition of the entire album would be quite nice.
Prince's last album 3121 (hence the ticket price tag) was a messy affair; a random sampling of 12 tracks from his unedited unconscious that mixed in every superfluous bell, whistle, clap and string at his disposal.
Prince Rogers Nelson was born in 1959 to John Nelson, a jazz pianist, and his wife Mattie, a backing singer.

  Prince - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Indeed, various princely titles are derived from the ruler's, such as (e)mirza(da), khanzada, nawabzada, sahibzada, shahzada, sultanzada (all using the Persian patronymic suffix -zada, "son, descendant"; or (maha)rajkumar from (Maha)Raja and Kolano ma-ngofa 'son of the ruler' on Tidore, again patronymic; or even from a unique title, e.g.
Other princes (or the same, see below) derive their title not from their dynastic position as such (which must often be shared with brothers, etc), but from their claim to a unique title of formal princely rank, one named after a specific principality, not after the suzerain/sovereign state, even if they belong to one.
A prince or princess who is the head of state in a monarchy is a reigning prince.

 Prince
A Prince of the blood (in some monarchies, however, this is an actual title in its own right, of more restricted use; thus Prince du sang in the French kingdom, restricted to the royal descendents in the male line) is a male member of royalty, i.e.
A prince or princess who is the head of state in a monarchy is a reigning prince, which had no other specific, formal (rank) title, and their domain, typically smaller than a kingdom, is called a "principality".
In ancient China, the title of prince developed from being the highest title of nobility (synonymous with duke) in the Zhou Dynasty, to five grades of princes (not counting the sons and grandsons of the emperor) by the time of the fall of the Qing Dynasty.

 Prince (musician) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prince Rogers Nelson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota at Mount Sinai Hospital on June 7, 1958 to John L. Nelson and Mattie Shaw.
Prince was actually booed off the stage that night, and it is rumored that a clip of the show was later used by Prince for his “Pop Life” single in 1985 (if you listen, you can actually hear one member of the audience yell, “Throw the bum out!”) This rumor is untrue.
Prince often uses pseudonyms and monikers to separate himself from the music (either his own or that of others) he has had input in; he has said that he was tired of seeing his name everywhere, and that only egotistical people take credit for everything they do.

 VH1.com : Prince : Biography - Urge Music Downloads
Prince was set to release the hard funk of The Black Album by the end of the year, yet he withdrew it just before its release, deciding it was too dark and immoral.
With Crystal Ball, Prince discovered that it's much more difficult to get records to an audience than it seems; some fans who pre-ordered their copies through Prince's website (from which a bonus fifth disc was included) didn't receive them until months after the set began appearing in stores.
Prince then released a new one-man album, New Power Soul, just three months after Crystal Ball; even though it was his most straightforward album since Diamonds and Pearls, it didn't do well on the charts, partly because many listeners didn't realize it had been released.

 Prince
Recorded when Prince was only 19, he's already producing, writing (just one co-write on lyrics), and playing all the instruments.
It's stripped-down funk, and fun to listen to, but it's easy to see why Prince didn't want to release it with his name on it: mostly party songs, recorded quickly, more characteristic of a Time album than of the intelligence and emotional range usually found on a Prince album.
Mae plays some lovely stuff ("Xcogitate") and the rhythm section has an admirable light touch, but as with Prince's work with Madhouse and Eric Leeds, the compositions tend to be very simple and overly repetitive (title track, where a multi-tracked Dulfer keeps stating the same theme with increasing volume).
