Prince to audition drummer at jazz club gigs
Prince will perform six intimate gigs at a Minneapolis jazz club next week, NME reports.
The reclusive star apparnetly booked the hometown shows at the Dakota Jazz Club on short notice in order to audition a new drummer.
Tickets were priced between $70 and $200 and have already sold out. He will reportedly perform two "sound check" sets on Wednesday (January 23), two jam sessions on Thursday (January 24) and two shows on Friday night (January 25).
Earlier this month, a mysterious Twitter account appeared and began leaking previously unreleased Prince material. It is still unclear if the account @3rdeyegirl is a viral marketing stunt or a genuinely unauthorized leak. The tracks released thus far include new cut "Same Different Page," an alternate version of recent single
"Rock and Roll Love Affair," and an extended version of 2010 song "LayDown."
