MINNEAPOLIS -- Prince has booked six last-minute shows at a Minneapolis jazz club this week in which he'll audition for a new drummer and host a jam session.
The singer-songwriter musician will play two "sound check" shows Wednesday night, two jam session shows Thursday night and two shows Friday simply billed as "surprise." Tickets went on sale Tuesday morning.
Minnesota Public Radio says the Minneapolis-born Prince picked the Dakota Jazz Club for the shows, instead of playing at his own Paisley Park venue.
