Prince to play benefit in Dallas before Super Bowl

Posted 11:04am on Wednesday, Jan. 05, 2011

Add another bold-faced name to the avalanche of talent landing in North Texas because of the Super Bowl: Prince. The iconic singer-songwriter (and former Super Bowl half-time entertainer, in 2007) is the draw for a gathering dubbed theEvent, which will be held Feb. 4 on the site of the former Reunion Arena in downtown Dallas. Tickets are pricey -- they start at $1,500 and top out at (gulp) $25,000 -- but all that scratch benefits a good cause: the Goss-Michael Foundation.

The foundation, which is hosting the evening, bills "theEvent" as "an all-inclusive evening of music and culture [boasting] ... music, art, food, spirits and more."

In addition to Prince's "intimate" performance in the (ahem) "exclusive, custom-designed, climate-controlled performance tent," former Goss-Michael Foundation scholarship winners, guest DJs, additional special guests and a silent auction will keep folks entertained. Reservation opportunities have yet to be announced, but the event's spokespeople suggest keeping an eye on the soiree's Twitter feed for further updates.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
