Prince pledge ahead of concert date

Prince is to play in Ireland this summer with promoters vowing he will not cancel this time.

The musician pulled out of a one-off show in Dublin's Croke Park three years ago only to end up hit with a high-profile lawsuit from the show's backers.

Prince will play to 35,000 fans in an open-air concert at Malahide Castle on Saturday July 30.

The Dublin date is part of a European tour which also includes performances in Paris on June 30, Kent, England on July 3 and the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland on July 8.

A spokeswoman for promoters POD and ICO Concerts assured fans Prince was committed to the Irish leg of the tour.

"This is part of an overall tour - it's not a one-off gig," she said.

Prince had been scheduled to play Croke Park in June 2008 but cancelled just 13 days before the show, angering promoter MCD and more than 55,000 fans who bought tickets.

The Minneapolis star did not publicly explain why he pulled out. As the row with MCD's Denis Desmond deepened, Prince was said to have told his agent - "tell that cat to chill".

The two million euro lawsuit was settled in a Dublin court, with Mr Desmond quick to hit back at the pop star, saying: "This cat is chilled."

Seating and standing tickets for the show go on sale this Friday at 9am.
