In the wake of Prince's enigmatic appearance at the 2013 Grammy Awards, the icon has announced that he will be headlining the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland this summer, according to Billboard.

The master musician will perform over the three nights of July 13, 14 and 15, organizers of the Swiss music event have announced. Tickets for the shows at Auditorium Stravinski don’t come cheap. At the lowest end of the scale, standing tickets cost Swiss Francs 175 ($190), while seated tickets are CHF 395 ($428).

Montreux is familiar turf for Prince. He first played at the fest in 2007 and returned in 2009, when he delivered two shows in the same evening.
