Prince is once again King. Twenty years after the inauguration of his Purple Reign, the illustrious icon is back commanding the music scene.

· a cultural maverick with a daring sense of style

· an industry pioneer who's created his own independent business models

· the most dynamic showman ever to hit the stage
