Prince will follow-up his surprise performance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas with a 28-show mini-tour in North America, beginning on 15 April (13).

The pop superstar will play four back-to-back shows at eight different venues as he prepares for his summer concerts at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

And, as if that schedule isn't exhausting enough, Prince will play two shows a day.

Stops include The Vogue in Vancouver, British Columbia; the Showbox in Seattle, Washington; the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, California and The Joint in Las Vegas.

Prince will play three shows at the Montreux Jazz Festival in mid-July (13), before headlining the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival in Sweden and Denmark's Smuckfest in August (13).
