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.
