Prince Postpones Solo European Tour Indefinitely In Response To Paris Attacks
The world is still very much recovering from the terrors that transpired in Paris this past weekend, claiming the lives of 130-plus innocents and reinstalling the fear we've fought so diligently to rise above. The ripples of those horrific acts can be felt across the globe at dinner tables, at water coolers, and now unsurprisingly, at music venues like the famed Parisian stage Bataclan that sustained the brunt of that terrorist attack last Friday, November 13th.
Many have already cancelled forthcoming European tour dates, but today,we learn that Prince will be following suit, postponing his own Piano & A Microphone tour, which was slated to commence at Vienna's Wiener Konzerthaus on November 21st and continue well into the next month as the very first truly solo tour of his career. The postponement was announced on the venues site, stating that promoters had made the call.
Yes, fans will have to wait for that historic run, but even if he were to reunite The Revolution for a worldwide victory lap, this is without question the safest course of action, no matter how much your purple hearts may break at the notion. The clearest thing to take from this is that P certainly has the safety of his fans in mind and heart and that Paris, along with every city that's been touched by these evils, over the months and years beyond that, get their time to recover from the recoil and receive the world's countless prayers for peace.
