Hit n’ Run Tour 2000

2000/1

To celebrate and capitalise on his return to his birth name following the expiration of his recording contract with Warner Brothers, Prince set about on a Hit And Run Tour to capitalise on and return to playing his hits recorded when signed to Warner Brothers. This was also his first opportunity to tour the USA, which he did throughout 2000, but with its shows announced at very short notice. The tour ran for 30 dates and culminated in a week long Celebration for which Paisley Park studios was also opened to fans, and mark Prince’s birthday. The Hit And Run Tour was essentially a greatest hits show and not in support of any album, however it did serve a purpose to hone this band for the recording sessions of The Rainbow Children.
