SERIOUSLY. What's it gonna take to get the Purple One to play a gig in his hometown?

After wrapping up his "Welcome 2 America" tour, which was actually more like "Welcome 2 New York, New Jersey, and California," Prince announced today that he will steer his magical purple pirate ship (or whatever mode of transport he tours in) toward Canada and skip right over the Twin Cities.

The "Welcome 2 Canada" tour kicks off on the day after Thanksgiving. For those looking to take a road trip, tickets go on sale this Friday, November 4 via Ticketmaster. Wikipedia has set lists for his "Welcome 2 America" shows here.

I saw him in November of 2009 at Paisley Park in Chanhassen. Almost missed it!!! He doesn't announce that sort of thing until the day of... Sat in front of Paisley Park for 6 hours and finally got inside and he played for 3 hours. So awesome. I also saw him at the 7/7/07 show at Target Center. That was the last official Prince show in MN. Please come back and do that again!

Does anyone remember the last time he performed in MN? Had to be at least 5 years ago, right?
