Prince Plays Oakland's Paramount Theatre This Weekend

Tickets go on sale Wednesday at noon.

Prince is playing at Oakland's Paramount Theatre this weekend.

Prince will bring his new "Piano and a Microphone" tour to Oakland's Paramount Theatre on Sunday.

His new show debuted on February 16 in Melbourne, Australia, and features Prince performing old and new material at a grand piano. 

At that performance, he paid tribute to the passing of Denise Matthews, the singer who was one of his most memorable protege of the '80s as Vanity and who passed away in a Fremont hospital on February 15.

Tickets go on sale on noon on Wednesday for two shows (7 p.m. and 10 p.m.) and are likely to disappear quickly. Prices are not currently listed on either the Ticketmaster or Paramount Theatre websites but are expected to start at $99.
