One-Off Performances

Through the years Prince played various shows that were not part of a (major) tour. They were either one(or more)-off surprise performances because Prince felt like playing, or television, radio performances or festival gigs. In 1986 (and repeated in 2000/2001/2003) these one-off gigs turned into what could be called a tour, The Hit 'N' Run tour. Ticket sales were announced only days (sometimes hours) before the shows took place. These are not one-off shows however, but part of a tour (concept). Some years, like 1994, 1999, and 2008 there was no tour at all and nothing but one-off shows

1979
In 1979 Prince did only 2 shows, one warm-up show for the main shows, a showcase of the Warner executive's.
