The New Power Soul Tour is a tour by Prince, promoting The New Power Generation album Newpower Soul.[1][2][3]

History[edit]

Guitarist Kat Dyson left after the Jam of the Year Tour and new backing vocalist Marva King was added to the band. In addition, Prince added 'special guest' Larry Graham who played bass and provided vocals on many songs. Rapper Doug E. Fresh often guested as well. The tour was split into 2 legs: one American and one European. Later in the year, the tour morphed into the "New Power Soul Festival Tour", with opening acts Larry Graham and Chaka Khan. Once again there was a US and European leg.
