NEW YORK (Entertainment Tonight) - Music icon Prince announced Thursday that he’ll be heading out on a new tour.

The tour will be titled “Welcome 2 America” and he’ll be joined on the road by Janelle Monae, Cassandra Wilson and more artists.

“We’re here today in New York to announce a series of events that will begin on a purple day in December in the year 2010,” Prince said during a press conference held at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater.

“Welcome 2 America’s best described as ‘what we’ve all been waiting for.’ I will serve as master of ceremonies for multiple nights of entertainment that will feature some of the best artists this country has to offer,” he said of the tour.

“Bring friends, bring your children, and bring foot spray because it’s gonna be funky,” Prince promised.
