MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Prince is playing six shows at the Dakota Jazz Club in downtown Minneapolis, starting Wednesday, Jan. 16. But it was trouble with tickets that took center stage on Tuesday.

"So that's why the Dakota Jazz Club's calendar has been conspicuously blank for the remainder of this week and weekend," wrote Andrea Swenson, of Minnesota Public Radio's 89.3 The Current.

Tickets for the Jan. 16, 17 and 18 shows, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. each night, went on sale at 11 a.m. Tuesday at http://dakotacooks.com/online-box-office-and-store/. The Dakota has set a limit of four tickets per person.

Wednesday, Jan. 16
"Soundcheck" shows will include a drummer audition
Tickets are $70

Thursday, Jan. 17
Jam sessions
Tickets range from $100 to $150

Friday, Jan. 18
"Surprise"
Tickets are $250 each

TICKET PROBLEMS

While the Dakota Jazz Cub confirmed the 11 a.m. on-sale time, the SeatAdvisor.com purchasing site listed the time as 5:47 p.m. for the Wednesday soundcheck, 5:51 p.m. for the Thursday jam and 5:55 p.m. for the Friday surprise.

The ticketing system was overloaded within the first ten minutes, but visitors to the page were queued for purchasing when the site was able to load.
