With minimal promotion from Universal, 3121 has now sold over 1 million copies worldwide. Thinking its now time to take 3121 on the road, Prince will be taking Tamar to Las Vegas to put on 2 club shows for an entry ticket for a whopping $312.01 on the 27th and 28th of May to start what is hoped to become a fully fledged tour.
Despite the sales Universal’s promotion has been a damp squib and a decision to put on a tour will be a tough one for Prince has he did not agree a concert deal with them and will fund the tour out of his own pocket, this could mean theatres as on the One Nite Alone Tour in 2002. On 6 May Prince gave a concert to those who won a ‘Purple Ticket’ through internet and radio competitions, it was also announced on that 3121 will indeed hit the road. Promotion is hotting up for a possible tour as the release of Fury, the third single from 3121 goes on sale on the 22nd of May, with Tamar’s debut album, Milk & Honey, streeting on June 13th.
