PRINCE ROYCE on tour in COACH #5556
By: Emily Ramshaw
It’s important to understand that Prince Royce inspires fandom as passionate (if not more so) as that for Justin Bieber and Drake—this is a guy whose fans quite literally scream, cry, and tear his shirt off his back. Just check his Instagram for evidence. When we arrived, he had his tour bus safely sequestered behind fences at the Panther Arena and away from the madding crowd, and we witnessed a living pop star get into performance mode. After giving us a quick tour, showing us his custom Buscemi sneakers and skateboarding through the arena parking lot for our cameras, he sat down to tell us exactly what it’s like to tour across the country while close to six million Instagram followers (with millions more on Facebook and Twitter) are charting your every move, from his pre-show drink of choice, to the story about his man bun, and why he does meet and greets before every show—and why he feels just as much love for his fans as they do for him.
