Prince, Kelly Clarkson headed to the Puget Sound

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Do menorahs or Christmas trees come in purple? They should on occasions like this. Iconic pop figure Prince - aka 'The Purple One' - is saddling up at the Tacoma Dome for a single-night performance, his first appearance in the Seattle area since 2004's Key Arena concert. The artist formerly known as a symbol added the date to his brief 'Welcome 2 America' tour - he dropped Saskatchewan and added Tacoma, much to chagrin of many parka-wearing Canadians hoping to hear songs like 'When Doves Cry,' 'Erotic City,' and 'Let's Go Crazy' performed live (bah humbug, Saskatchewanians!). Prince will play in front of an expected packed crowd in Tacoma on December 19. Tickets go on sale November 19 (10 a.m.) via Ticketmaster - visit www.ticketmaster.com for pricing information. Put yourself on the holiday gift list this year with tickets to see the one, the only, the legendary Prince.

You'll have to wait until the New Year to see Kelly Clarkson in concert, but she's on her way, too. The two-time Grammy winner will bring her 'Stronger Tour 2012' to the ShoWare Center (Kent) on March 22, promoting her fifth studio album, Stronger, which includes the leadoff hit 'Mr. Know It All.' Clarkson recently won a Country Music Award for her duet with red-hot cowboy Jason Aldean. Tickets for the American Idol alum go on sale November 19 (10 a.m.), although presales begin November 16 for Clarkson's fan community, or 'Kellebrities' (I didn't make that up, promise). Visit www.kellyclarkson.com/events for ticket purchase and price information.

German metal band Rammstein and American rock group Augustana also revealed Seattle area tour dates this week. The former plays the Tacoma Dome on May 14, while the latter - who interviewed with Seattle Gay News earlier in 2011 - performs January 21 at The Crocodile. Yet another new show to announce is G Love and Special Sauce, who I've seen twice - as an opening act for Joan Osborne and at the Tempe Music Festival - appearing at The Showbox Market on March 2.

Lady Gaga vs. Adele - sort of. The pop divas, who went head-to-head at the MTV VMAs and will presumably duel in at least one Grammy category next year (likely Best Female Pop Vocal), are battling each other again. Both artists will release live concert DVDs a week apart in the coming days. Lady Gaga's Emmy-nominated concert special Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden lands on record store shelves on November 21, in standard DVD and Blu-ray formats. She'll also release Born This Way: The Remix, a 14-track disc with reinvented dance mixes by Foster the People, Goldfrapp, and The Horrors, to name a few. If you can't decide between the two, Born This Way: The Collection combines the concert DVD and remix CD into one neat little monster package, available November 21 as well. Meanwhile, Adele's Live at Royal Albert Hall comes out November 29. The DVD/CD set, also available in standard DVD and Blu-ray format, includes the 90-minute performance in its entirety, exclusive CD of the concert, behind-the-scenes footage shot the day of show, and cover versions of Bonnie Raitt's 'I Can't Make You Love Me' and The Steeldrivers' 'If It Hadn't Been for Love.' In total, there are 17 tracks on the Live at Royal Albert Hall recording.

You snooze, you lose. The following concerts are now sold out: Wale & Friends at Neumos (November 25), The Kooks at The Showbox Market (December 2), 107.7 The End's 'Deck The Hall Ball' with Mumford and Sons, Death Cab for Cutie, and Cage the Elephant at Key Arena (December 7), and 103.7 The Mountain's 'Winter Warmth' with Florence + the Machine at WaMu Theater (December 8). Almost sold out is Oscar-winner Marketa Irglova (of The Swell Season) at The Triple Door (November 22).

Finally, next week's issue has special music recommendations for the holiday season, plus a preview of the Grammy nominations. Until then, let the music play!
