  • This show was added to the Welcome 2 America Tour itinerary on 10 January 2011
  • Tickets to general public went on sale Saturday 15 December at 10:00 p.m. EST. There was an internet presale (with the codeword ROCKSTAR) that ran from Thursday 13 January, 10:00 a.m. EST til Friday 14 January, 10:00 p.m. EST.
  • During Controversy, Prince invited Kim Kardashian onto the stage to dance. She simply stood there and clapped, and he responded by telling her to get off the stage. Video of the moment went viral soon afterwards, and many news reports connected this with a line he sung during the song Welcome 2 America later in the show: "Welcome to America, where you can be famous for doing absolutely nothing at all".
