Prince held a press conference at Harlem's Apollo Theater yesterday to announce a new tour — dubbed Welcome 2 America — and he was brief in his address to the media, just under two minutes, and sparse on details.
"Welcome," Prince said to the crowd, sporting aviator-style sunglasses and a dark, textured sport coat adorned with a gold crest on the front. "We're here in New York to announce a series of events that will begin on a purple day in December 2010." - MTV.com
