Prince will hit the road again next month — in Australia.

He’ll perform in Sydney on May 11, Melbourne on May 14 and Brisbane on May 18. It’ll be an in-the-round stage, which is actually shaped like his glyph. In true Prince fashion, tickets are priced from $99 to $199.

This is Prince's first tour of Australia since 2003.

Of course, he hasn’t performed in an arena in his hometown since July 7, 2007, at Target Center — the same night he also performed at Macy’s auditorium and First Avenue as part of a triple header.

His last local gig for which tickets were sold was in October 2009 at Paisley Park. Meanwhile, Prince has done residencies in Los Angeles and the greater New York area as well as concerts in Canada and the Carolinas and several festivals in Europe. But he hasn’t shown much hometown love onstage.
