Q. I'm a big fan of live music, but have noticed a new trend of not announcing gigs until around 2 weeks before they happen. Prince has just done it and Coldplay seem to be too. Can The Oracle explain the trend?
The Oracle replies:
That's not actually the case. Prince's tour is called Hit & Run and by definition that suggests last minute and fairly spontaneous. Many of his gigs were only announced merely hours before.
