Prince ready to rock Paris

2009-10-08 20:30

US rock star Prince has decided to give two concerts Sunday at a landmark Paris building he visited and liked this week, the glass-and-iron Grand Palais exhibition hall, producers said Wednesday.

Prince, who was already mulling over the idea of doing a concert in Paris, on Tuesday attended Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel catwalk show at the exhibition hall on the banks of the Seine and "liked the venue", officials at the Grand Palais told AFP.

Titled "All Day/All Night" the concerts are to be held at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. with prices and booking details to be announced later.

The rock star returned to visit the spectacular glass and cast iron vaults of the Grand Palais hall on Wednesday with a production team and "is very enthusiastic about the concerts," the source added.

The Grand Palais can seat up to 6,000 people but the number of tickets available will depend on the format of the performance.
