According to several publications, it looks like Prince is finalizing a contract for a Los Angeles residency performing at Hollywood's Roosevelt hotel. The residency is slated to last for seven weeks, beginning on June 15. The "man in purple" will be performing every Friday night at 11:30 PM in the hotel's Blossom Room, which will house 250 seated guests and an undisclosed number of standing room only tickets.
Prince's takeover of the Hollywood haunt doesn't end there. According to LA Times' BuzzBand column, Prince's personal chef will commandeer the hotel's Dakota restaurant at 2 AM, at which point the dining room will become an after-hours dinner club. Prince's performance will continue as he will join the supper club's jazz ensemble to entertain patrons until 4AM.
The residency is a convenient location for Prince. He will be a hotel guest through the summer while he and his band rehearse for an upcoming tour.
