Lets try this again ~~ Did anyone get a tour book from the Welcome 2 shows??? If so how much was it? Do U feel it was worth the $$ Is there alot of Pix. of Prince in it?? Please let me know!!! Thanks!

I got the NYC one and I liked it. I thought it had some nice pics of Prince in it. I will be looking to buy one in Chicago, too. I can't recall the price, though.

Hey Gang... has any one else noticed that on Ticketmaster it says the doors open at 5 p.m????


Is't that a tad early.. considering Prince is hardly EVER on time...??
He shows is suppose to start at 8 but he is normally close to an hour late??


Wonder if this was a typo by Ticketmaster??



When I went to the Feb. 7 NYC show he was prompt. Tickets said 7:30. Cecelia Green was on @ 7:30 off by 8:00 & Prince was on at 8:40.

eek



That damn spell check,I meant Ceelo.

Cee'lo's album cuts just like Prince r better than his singles.....He is a very gifted & soulful singer...Prince rarely invites males on stage to sing with him. So that says something..

Oh damn... I posted earlier how I was tkaing my girl to her first Prince concert, and how he better bring the energy, and how he might even bring up Bruce Springsteen to really impress (I'm joking, but my girlfriend's popstar obsession is Springsteen).

I just the saw the clip on The View, where not only does he compare his tight band with the ways of Bruce, but also alludes to watching a Bruce show from backstage.

This is one of many times where some little detail of Prince randomly coincides so well with my world.... can't wait to show her the clip. She'll have the right attitude going in.

That is not the first time Prince brought his fondness up of Bruce & his band & Bruce's fans loyalty 2 him & how he couldn't take his fans away from him....

After seeing some Springsteen shows and the recent documentary, I have now understood that Prince does take a lot from Springsteen in terms of showmanship and audience interaction (and possibly the ambition to maintain a signature sound that is your own brand. Like the flange and claps Prince used to always use). I wonder how close they actually are. I wonder if they have ever recorded together.

Yeah, she was on (maybe still is on?) some GO Transit ads on the GO trains (GO Transit is a public transportation service in the greater Toronto area). It made me chuckle on the commute.

Normally there is a simple policy at Prince shows:

NO CAMERAS

And that includes using your cell phone as a camera..... And of course everything better than that....

The guards take your camera and watch you delete all the Prince photos. In my opinion, it is not worth it.

Greg Kot, pop music critic for the Chicago Trib, on Twitter:

At Paisley Park watching Prince rehearse a 20 piece band for upcoming Chicago residency. Drill sergeant meets Count Basie.

Prince is rolling his eyes at one band member who toured with Justin Timberlake and is now "overplaying." "I have to retrain him."

Prince is humming melody lines to guitarists, instructing drummer exactly where to put a cymbal accent. "Gotta feel where that goes!"

Prince is humming melody lines to guitarists, instructing drummer exactly where to put a cymbal accent. "Gotta feel where that goes!"

Prince to the band: "Give that last chord more value." Which means don't be in such a hurry to let it go. They linger on it, Prince grins

Prince critical too, but in quiet, measured tones: "your time changed again. It got boomy and ugly" and "you should throw that pedal away."

Prince cracks up band with an admiring Chuck Berry temper tantrum story. "Chuck went St. Louis on my boy."

More Prince stuff from Paisley Park interview and rehearsal to come in next few days. Will post links here. Thanks

The TV commercial for Chicago states "the hits" so I think that will be the majority of the setlists... lol

I don't know, since he's bringing the horns back it may be a lil different show than all the other welcome 2 america shows. I wouldn't mind heavily synths based Hits show either but there could be some surprises, who knows. Just my personal opinion.. yay!

Tuesday, September 25
special guest: TBD

Wednesday, September 26

Looks like there is a support act every night

100% pure conjecture on my part-- but if I had to guess: Larry and/or Chaka and/or Mint Condition and/or Andy Allo. I know that's no help. But you know that's how it's (probably) going to go down.
