Prince, one of the most prolific and groundbreaking artists of our time, invited acclaimed singer/songwriter Janelle Monáe as the supporting act for his September 26 "Welcome 2 Chicago" show at the United Center.
The show follows two previously announced dates taking place Monday, September 24 and Tuesday, September 25, also at the United Center and will all be in support of Rebuild the Dream. Rebuild the Dream, founded by Van Jones, is a mobilization of hundreds of thousands of everyday people—from seniors to students, moms, dads, brothers and sisters—who come together to build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.
Monae is from Kansas City, so to play a major Midwestern show such as this is a huge deal for the new CoverGirl spokeswoman.
Any Chicago readers going to see Prince?
