Las Vegas, NV (March 22, 2012)–PRINCE, seven-time Grammy Award winner and Multi-Platinum artist, announced today that he will be embarking on a nine-city West Coast U.S. tour this Spring. The tour will introduce to PRINCE’s fans his new, all-female backing band, 3RDEYEGIRL, featuring guitarist Donna Grantis, bass guitarist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford. PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL will make a stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for four shows on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27. Tickets are on sale now.
3RDEYEGIRL recently made their national television debut on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” in which PRINCE and the band performed his newly released song “Screwdriver” and classic tune “Bambi.” New music from PRINCE is available exclusively at 3RDEYEGIRL.com, including “Screwdriver,” “Breakfast Can Wait” and “RNR Remix 7,” and more.
PRINCE has been named the #1 guitarist of all-time on Earth-Audio.Tutsplus.com; and 3RDEYEGIRL is already turning critics’ heads. Says TheStar.com: “Prince has a new backup band, 3rdEyeGirl, that’s talented, tight and together as they come.” Says Sticky Magazine of guitarist Donna Grantis: “the full impact of Grantis is her live performance: the interaction with other musicians onstage, the improvisational wizardry and the sheer passion that can be felt.” Adds Abstract Logix: Grantis alternately echoes whisper-to-a-scream blues snippets of Hendrix, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, before exploring feels from metal to jazz.” TheCurrent.Org raves about Ida Nielsen (deemed by Bass Player.com as “Prince’s Funk Princess”) and drummer Hannah Ford stating: “Nielsen and Ford prove to be a powerhouse rhythm section.” GuitarCenter.com echoes of Ford: “From the moment the show opens until it closes, you will feel the excitement and power of Hannah’s assault on her drum kit.”
