LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prince, one of the most prolific and groundbreaking artists of our time, announces his return to Chicago, at the United Center beginning September 24th and his support of Rebuild the Dream. Rebuild the Dream, founded by Van Jones, is a mobilization of hundreds of thousands of everyday people--from seniors to students, moms, dads, brothers and sisters--who come together to build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, September 6th at 10am Central at LiveNation.com.

On site at the United Center, Prince and Rebuild the Dream will offer opportunities to learn about, support, and take part in rebuilding vibrant and sustainable communities. Socially-conscious businesses, tech start-ups, entrepreneurs, and other innovators will offer specific tools that individuals and communities can use to improve their economic situation in the short- as well as long-term.

The collaboration is part of ongoing efforts of Rebuild the Dream to engage artists and the creative community in telling the stories of real people affected by our broken economy and lifting up new, innovative solutions to rebuild our communities and create a better and fairer economic future.

"We couldn't be more excited about partnering with a legend like Prince," said Van Jones, Co-founder and President of Rebuild the Dream. "Our economic system is broken. Rebuild the Dream exists to unite arts and organize into a potent force to support the Dreams of Our Communities. There are few artists who have Prince's unwavering commitment to a vision of a sustainable, fair economic future."

Rebuild the Dream is a platform for bottom-up, people-powered innovations to help fix the economy not just here in the U.S. but Globally as well. Using 21st-century digital technology, we advance highly inventive solutions that are designed to protect and expand our communities, while creating pathways to prosperity for those who are locked out of it. Our goal is to put People back to work--and pull our communities back together. For additional information visit RebuildTheDream.com.

The upcoming Chicago dates will mark Prince first return to the area since 2004.

With Prince's Welcome 2 America New York show, Rolling Stone said, "He had the crowd panting as soon as he hit the stage...It was unbelievably great. Do you go to a Prince show for predictable consistency? Ah, no. You go for moments of divinely inspired madness -- and last night, he delivered as many of those as a fan could expect."

The New York Daily News raved, "Prince worthy of all royal accolades...The hit-friendly show had a kinetic confidence and racing pace that spoke of his singular place in pop history," while the New York Times said "It's easy to envision Prince as another Chuck Berry or James Brown, barnstorming for decades to come."
