If U2 can do five nights of Letterman, Prince can do four nights of Leno

LenoLast week U2 was on The Late Show with David Letterman for five straight nights to promote their new album, and now another rock icon is going on Leno to promote his new albums.

Prince (so glad I don't have to find some way to type that funny symbol thing he went as for a few years) will perform on Jay Leno's show for four nights, March 25 to 27 and then again on May 28. The appearances are to promote his two (yes, two) new albums, Lotus Flower and MPLSound, which will be released on May 29 in Target stores only. Leno's last show is that same night. Conan O'Brien takes over on June 1.

Prince sent out a special e-mail to fans on his mailing list and you can read it at the link above. Lots of uses of the number "2" for "two" and "to" as well as the number "4" for "four" and "for." I think Prince invented text messaging.

Ah, that's right. I was wondering why the article didn't lump that last show with the others. I should pay better attention to my M months.

It's not four nights in May, but three in March (25-27), and then one in May (28).

Yup, I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up.

Wouldn't the last show be on a Friday (the 29th) rather than a Saturday (the 30th)? I mean who knows, maybe NBC is giving him an extra day, but it seems odd.

Is Jay going to have him come over and chat too? Now that would be interesting.
