Tomorrow night, music superstar Prince will begin an engagement at his new 3121 club at the Rio in Las Vegas. Every Friday and Saturday night, the eccentric and immensely talented artist will perform with the New Power Generation in front an audience limited to 700 people. Tickets are $125.

Throughout his 30 year career Prince has been extremely profilic, releasing more than 40 albums and writing thousands of songs. Wikipedia hosts a detailed bio and discography, but for those wanting to dig deeper than The Hits may I suggest:
