Prince Announces “Welcome 2 Chicago” Residency

Following similar stints in New York City and Los Angeles, Prince will descend on Chicago next month for a multi-date residency at the United Center. The aptly titled “Welcome 2 Chicago” will begin on September 24th, and marks his first shows in the city since 2004.

The residency will also be used to support Rebuild the Dream, the organization founded by Van Jones that seeks to “build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.”

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.”

Tickets for the September 24th show will go on sale beginning September 6th. Additional shows will be announced shortly.

How about "Welcome 2 New Orleans" as a compromise between Atlanta and Dallas? That city could certainly use the money, and it's cheap to fly there (at least from Dallas).

After a tough week, this is a super-duper piece of news! Prince in action once again so we can all breathe out. cool Great cause too. Can't get there, but have faith in people sharing razz

Not so sure that it's a good idea to move the thread to concerts so soon. What about people who don't visit the site often or daily and miss it and no nothing about it? I might have been one of them as it was still there 1 hours ago. Should be a sticky on both pages at least for a while imo.

Hopefully this tour really will achieve its goal. Problem is that Prince fans

are the last people in this sad world who give a hoot about anything but

their own immediate pleasure. Obviously Prince wants to address some

issues of urban blight, but who will listen?

Also, the minute he release a dollar for the cause, the greedy sue-happy vultures hit him.

Prince is a great and beautiful giver, but has some real jerks who love to

pursue and hound him.

What a bizarre overgeneralization. You could just as easily argue that anyone who goes to this concert is selfish because they could donate the amount of the ticket price directly to the charity, skip the concert, and cut out the middleman.

Did some math and if they announce dates on 10/3 or 10/4 then I can swing it without using vacation time(that I'm tapped out on) and without breaking the bank. Perfect reason to see Chicago again. Last trip I ran through the downtown area so fast. I barely remember any spots we hit! cool

It would and a major plus is that flights from NYC to Chicago are so short they aren't horrifically grueling!

That is true! The best seats, actually, from myW2A experiences are on the elevated sides of the symbol between the arrow point and the cross of the symbol... If you get the front rows in these sections, you have a great view. The floor, right in front of the arrow point, does not afford the best view.

yeah, except I was looking to take my two kids. I'm looking at $150+ for nosebleeds, or $450+ for decent seats.

anybody interested in getting a 20 person suite???

Checkout priceline.com and search for hotels around the United Center a few popped up under $100 within a 5 mile range(easy cab ride).

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

Thanks! Another tip for those combating for the best seats during pre-sales on Ticketbastard--the first tickets released, even for credit card pre-sales, aren't necessarily the best... If you wait, from my experience, they release better seats in sections held back during the pre-sales... confused

How about "Welcome 2 New Orleans" as a compromise between Atlanta and Dallas? That city could certainly use the money, and it's cheap to fly there (at least from Dallas).

HECKS YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

I am from New Orleans, and I would pack my bags in a second!! I think I might purchase a ticket for September though! SERIOUSLY!!! lol

If you have a Citicard, you qualify for the pre sale by virtue of the card. If you have a Live Nation account, you get a special pass and screen.

I have a Live Nation account but how do I get the passwords? I dont ever get any presale info from them. Is there something I have to do?

Following similar stints in New York City and Los Angeles, Prince will descend on Chicago next month for a multi-date residency at the United Center. The aptly titled “Welcome 2 Chicago” will begin on September 24th, and marks his first shows in the city since 2004.

The residency will also be used to support Rebuild the Dream, the organization founded by Van Jones that seeks to “build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.”

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.”

Tickets for the September 24th show will go on sale beginning September 6th. Additional shows will be announced shortly.

So from people who have seen a show... what's the best seat? For example front row for the Musicology Tour was horrible for sight and sound. But first row on the 2nd tier in the middle of a long side was PERFECT for Musicology.

If you're not sitting in floor or table seats, according to that seating map, which is similar to MSG in NYC, and other venues, I would say rows 101 and 122 and sections, 111-112, the lower red seats would be a good view or atleast close to the stage.

That is true! The best seats, actually, from myW2A experiences are on the elevated sides of the symbol between the arrow point and the cross of the symbol... If you get the front rows in these sections, you have a great view. The floor, right in front of the arrow point, does not afford the best view.

[Edited 8/31/12 18:38pm]

I went to W2A and we were at the back of the symbol on the floor and our positioning was SWEET!!! I read so much negative stuff about these seats, but after going to a concert I realised this must have been written by people who want to sit in their seat all night. The concert we were at we could go anywhere on the floor, and Prince was right there, 2 metres away! Who wants to sit in their seat all night with Prince playing right there? We came to the conclusion that these seats were some of the best in the house, as the VIP section had tables in the way so dancing would have been constricting, (we were right next to them chatting to them all night by the way, for $100AU less, and more room) and the other floor seats were alot furthur away from the man, pretty sure the pointy end wouldn't have been that great, but at long as he's in the middle of the stage which he mostly his you can see him sweet, but when he comes around the back of the circle you could almost touch him, which you can't with the other floor seats cause the VIP tables are in the way. Also, he tends to face the circle ALOT of the time so he can communicate with his band, and like I said earlier you can move pretty much anywhere on the floor as well.

We almost swapped for the tiered seats but so glad we didn't - don't belive the negativity about these seats everyone!!!

Would he really do a few shows there.. pull the whole stage down for a night or so then have it re put back up at the same venue? That sounds like a ton of work for his crew (ok, not that HE would care... but still)

Also.. I am very confussed at the seating area.. on the Symbol does the band set up around the O park of the Symbol.. or back near the > part??? I have seen alot of shows. but never with that type stage..

prince which part is best to sit near???? thanks for the help???

That is true! The best seats, actually, from myW2A experiences are on the elevated sides of the symbol between the arrow point and the cross of the symbol... If you get the front rows in these sections, you have a great view. The floor, right in front of the arrow point, does not afford the best view.

[Edited 8/31/12 18:38pm]

I went to W2A and we were at the back of the symbol on the floor and our positioning was SWEET!!! I read so much negative stuff about these seats, but after going to a concert I realised this must have been written by people who want to sit in their seat all night. The concert we were at we could go anywhere on the floor, and Prince was right there, 2 metres away! Who wants to sit in their seat all night with Prince playing right there? We came to the conclusion that these seats were some of the best in the house, as the VIP section had tables in the way so dancing would have been constricting, (we were right next to them chatting to them all night by the way, for $100AU less, and more room) and the other floor seats were alot furthur away from the man, pretty sure the pointy end wouldn't have been that great, but at long as he's in the middle of the stage which he mostly his you can see him sweet, but when he comes around the back of the circle you could almost touch him, which you can't with the other floor seats cause the VIP tables are in the way. Also, he tends to face the circle ALOT of the time so he can communicate with his band, and like I said earlier you can move pretty much anywhere on the floor as well.

We almost swapped for the tiered seats but so glad we didn't - don't belive the negativity about these seats everyone!!!

That's in Australia though--I had floor seats in front of the arrow in New Jersey and everytime people tried to stand in the aisle for a better view or to dance security made us go back to our seats. razz Only at the end of the night during his encores would they let us go stand wherever we wanted in front of the stage...

I was thinking the exact same thing! Would love to fly out and see a show but also don't want to go solo. The only friend of mine who I THINK I can convince/coerce into coming with me would only be willing to go for a Friday or Saturday show, and there aren't too many open dates on the United Center calendar... Make it happen for me, Prince! lol

oh stinkers man that sux!!! Prince's first song was DMSR and we were on the floor way before he said "everybody get on the floor what the hell u come here for!"

If you can't get out of your seat then not a good place to be I agree, best to check out with the event centre - I mean Prince wants u outta your seat!!!

In the O2 the same happened as well if i'm correct. the stage was taken down and light and sound was raised up to the roof a few times. Not such a big deal and it is not such an immense stage at all.

So from people who have seen a show... what's the best seat? For example front row for the Musicology Tour was horrible for sight and sound. But first row on the 2nd tier in the middle of a long side was PERFECT for Musicology.

[Edited 9/1/12 9:02am]

I would say best vantage point is 121-122 (by the curve of the horn, which is where his piano is) or 112-113 where the other side of the horn is--where he spent a good amount of time. From both sides you can see him when he's in the center by the mic.

As for floor seats, I would say FL4 and FL5, since he faces that side most of the time. (At Madison Sq Garden similar seats were on a tier/ramp so it was elevated somewhat). Kind of odd that they positioned the stage so most of the floor seats are behind the circle, where he only occasionally would walk around.

If you're seeing multiple shows, it's worth getting a seat higher up so you can take in the full view of the symbol. The lighting for W2A shows in New York was amazing, not only the synchronization with the LED lights framing the stage, but the color flushes as well from the spotlights.

I didn't see any value to those VIP tables. Unless you're trying to get pulled up on stage to dance.

Ahhh... Cool! Thanks for the info. smile How long do these residencies usually last? About a month? Is there any chance that some shows could be at smaller venues? Not an aftershow, but the main show? I know this is all guesswork and I should just be patient and wait for the official word, but just putting it out there in case the universe is listening! lol

If you have a Citicard, you qualify for the pre sale by virtue of the card. If you have a Live Nation account, you get a special pass and screen.

I read through the threads and didn't see anything... Can someone please clarify that there is no password or info needed from Citicard? Just want to be sure I'm not missing anything.

Also, does anyone know what's all included in the VIP Section, what the cost is and are those only availalble for the Live Nation people? Has any one sat in these sections? If so, would you recommend them? I was looking at the VIP section between the arrow and the front of the horn... Everyone's suggestions as to where to sit has gotten me confused. Stuck between the VIP section I just mentioned, Floor 5 (infront of the horn) or Section 112 or 113. I've always had up close and personal seats in the past, with the luck of Prince's club and purchased tickets through ticketbrokers. Never purchased through ticketmaster so I'm afraid I won't get what I'm looking for...

Your best bet would be to contact Live Nation support. The last time I bought tickets through them via a Citicard presale it was The Wiggles about 5 years ago. Science marches on, so they may have a different way of doing this. I just remember that I had access to a screen where I put in my cc info and it knew right away that it was a Citicard.

How about "Welcome 2 New Orleans" as a compromise between Atlanta and Dallas? That city could certainly use the money, and it's cheap to fly there (at least from Dallas).

I agree! I also thought about a "Welcome 2 Texas" Residency. Houston, DFW, Austin, San Antonio, and maybe some place toward the West would be cool.

I have nothing but respect for this. The fact that he is teaming up with an initiative to help people who are up and coming in the world of entrepreneurship, or those who are less fortunate, is inspiring indeed.

I had the same idea. There are cheap flights from Dallas to all of those other cities, and those who don't want to fly can drive. Same for New Orleans. He did something similar in North Carolina and I'll bet he has even more fans in Texas.

I'm going 9/24 for sure. But Chicago is close enough that I could easily drive down for another show - and drive back the same night (so no need for a hotel). All I'd need to do is leave work early one day and go in late the next. Piece o' cake.

Frankly, biggest challenge will be finding someone to go with me. Sweetie'll go to one show - but I don't think I can get him to more than that.

that was the price in NYC/NJ when this tour started. The Purple Circle VIP is actually $1500 because they only sold it in pairs. I did the $500 VIP and had a blast. I wound up sitting next to Sherri Shephard from the View and in front of Naomi Campbell.

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

Never been to a Prince concert before, and have no idea when another opportunity like this will come up. There is no way I can make the weekday shows, with classes. I could do a Friday and Saturday though. I need to find transportation from Milwaukee though, if anyone wants to buddy-up/carpool. Orgnote a brotha.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

For the W2A concerts in 2010/2011 in the U.S., with the exception of Madison Square Garden and L.A., Prince tended to do residency concerts over a three-day period. After this trio, he just might move on to another "residency" in another city...

Yep. I love Chicago and lived there briefly many years ago. It does not get anywhere near the tourist traffic of places like NYC, LA, Vegas, and London, where he has done long residencies before.

How about "Welcome 2 New Orleans" as a compromise between Atlanta and Dallas? That city could certainly use the money, and it's cheap to fly there (at least from Dallas).




Yes please, Thank you. We were just slammed by hurricane Issac. The center passed right over my house and just wouldn't go away. 5 huge subdivisions just 7 minutes from my house were completely underwater. So many lost everything they own including some lives.
We thank Prince for S.S.T/ Brand New Orleans, and would Thank him again for coming to New Orleans soon.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Yes Lol! Just awakened from a crazy dreamed, deep sleep to find a futurist Funk Prince & I cannot take my eyes off of him!!! I mean this is something else- so unbelievably creative & imaginative. I'm loving it big time! 2 cool to have all those concert tickets like that and as someone said, wonder where they are all from?! Would love to get a closer look. And his outfit? Holy smokes its amazing! Looks like a thermal imaging of his body! Also it's reminding me of the pattern & colours from that new guitar he played in Australia. And the gold eye mask? Lol is that to protect the window to his soul from solar flares or something?! wink Ain't no one as cool as Prince. biggrin Ok, off to longingly gaze some more!

Ooh & forgot to mention that I see he has a big ring on his wedding finger?! eek I also saw a ring on that same finger for one of the Oz tour photos when the Twinz were bent over his guitar.

GREAT POSTER !!

except for the sleep mask I agree.

The mask is wacky I agree but I think its tied to the tickets in the background.

it looks like a spin-n-win wheel so maybe Prince is saying with his blindfold on he will spin the wheel of concert tickets to decide where in the world he goes next?

A long shot I know...

Ahh Genesia, but they are much faster to pop open!! Ha ha! kiss2

I understand that. But as much money as that man spends on clothing, he can afford to have someone hand sew snaps that have been covered in matching fabric - especially if they are going to be visible.

Hammer-on snaps in shiny metal? hmph!

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

For those going.....

For a virtual seating tour, just run the mouse over the image. The seating is pretty much set up like when there's a basketball game, but you can view how close you'll be to the stage from the seat you purchased, when you type in your section number, next to seat search on the chart.

Even he doesn't know where he'll go next. So many places-so little time. He's blindfolded with a dart in his right hand. The background are tickets -it would've been cool if it would spin (one going left one going right) and he's trying to decide where he wanna go next. I wish it was 3D/4D.

Then don't go, as simple as that. Shows are more for casual/enthusiastic fans who fill up more than 80% of the stadium anyway, and they'll complain if they hear him play songs that they're not familiar with. He CAN'T please every single purple person in the world so really, deal with it.

Who said I WAS going?? You actin' like someone's conflicted over going or not. Hay-yell to the naw! But, I'm STILL going to give my opinion about his current shows. I'm not one of these people who're willingly and happily handing him a fist full of dollars for an inferior product. Shit, if fewer people would go, he'd might actually start to put some thought and work into his live act. But, why would he when you've got a majority of people who would be willing to pay to watch him literally take a shit in a toilet on stage for 2 hours??

Shows are more for casual/enthusiastic fans who fill up more than 80% of the stadium anyway, and they'll complain if they hear him play songs that they're not familiar with. He CAN'T please every single purple person in the world so really, deal with it. 


 



 


Who said I WAS going?? You actin' like someone's conflicted over going or not. Hay-yell to the naw! But, I'm STILL going to give my opinion about his current shows. I'm not one of these people who're willingly and happily handing him a fist full of dollars for an inferior product. Shit, if fewer people would go, he'd might actually start to put some thought and work into his live act. But, why would he when you've got a majority of people who would be willing to pay to watch him literally take a shit in a toilet on stage for 2 hours??



Depends on whether he's singing while he's on the toilet. lol

and it's a shame some like the eye balling person on this site won't see the truth or admit it but let the "hater" tag come along any second now ..

falloff We don't agree on some stuff but damn if I don't believe you. I spent 77 dollars on a chance of some great content on a website but I'll be damned if I'm going to spend 150 on the chance that he'll do two or three songs different each night. I wish I could e like te majority of my prince friends: excited that he's coming to town, waiting for ten a.m. For tickets to go on sale, etc., but I can't this time. However,as I said before, I hope they have a great time.

if people wanna go and have fun i have no problems with it but like u I'LL BE DAMNED IF I GET SUCKERED AGAIN by this tour and what is killing me or i should say what's cracking me up is that people are pluckering down mad dollars at him 4 the same show he's been doing for the last two years and trying 2 pay up close in this economy. if u got the dough cool but don't be making threads later saying "who went 2 the concerts and are now flat broke" threads! i went 2 all four msg shows u know how? paying 4 the cheap seats cause the monitors are all around the stage and from on high u can see everything that is happening ..but nah people wanna be close then complain that the drummers set was blocking their vision or it was the monitors on stage blocking their view falloff

and i'm not a troll i'm speaking the truth but some don't wanna recognize it so go on have fun and be suckered again

man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81

um i've seen it he's heard the shows and ur point would be what exactly? someone doesn't like it they don't like it plain and simple yet it's a prince sin 2 call him out on the bullshit shows he's been doing.

i'm more excited about sept 18th and then thanksgiving because it's more exciting than seeing his shows of late. watch when these shows happen, someone other than us two will say 'damn shelby sang 2 ghatdamn much" or "he did too many cover songs" right alongside someone else saying "it was the best show ever"

Whatever, young'un. Apparently, my last statement hit a nerve, as truths are prone to do

And regarding my posts in concert threads, you obviously haven't seen my posts on the Lovesexy tour, SOTT tour, Purple Rain tour, Parade tour, and etc. But, maybe you were too young or too new to notice.

How fucking dare a classic artist play his most popular songs in an arena show!

Nobody wants to hear him play Purple Rain for the 10,000 time!

Just like people who go see Springsteen don't wanna hear him play Born to Run for the 20,000th time.

We don't wanna hear Stevie Wonder playing Superstition for the 30,000th time.

And we damn sure don't wanna hear The Rolling Stones play Satisfaction for the 100,000th time.

That's why those artists stop playing those songs a over a decade ago!

The large crowds only wanna hear obscure shit that nobody knows or new songs from an album that most of them didn't buy!

If they do play these songs that aren't in any way beloved or that particular artist is known for, they're just being lazy bastards that only care about money!

Why do orgers come on a thread like this just to poop on everyone's happiness and enthusiasm and plans for an upcoming concert?

It's OK to have contrary opinions about the man - lively discussions and counterpoint are good. But there are enough threads in the PMM or even Assoc Artists forum for that. There are even specific threads in PMM now to vent about his awful touring band and his awful tours/concerts for the past years.

Why do you have to come in here where people are talking about an actual concert coming up in a few days, for which people are buying tickets and excited - and poop on them? It's like, "Oh here are all the suckers and idiots who are going to see his inevitably awful show; let's jump in here and rub it in their faces!"

Again, I'm not saying their p.o.v. is invalid or not allowed - I'm saying it's not good etiquette to come smash on people's fun on this thread.

Event Details

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.


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.”

you will have to arrange ground transportation anyway i guess (car rental), so saving on flights will be the best option, as long as you don't have to drive 100s of miles to get in the city in the end.

I caught 5 or 6 O2 shows but I have 2 weeks off work starting the 24th and was thinking about going away somewhere anyway.

All the shows are getting pretty gemeric now but I'd love to catch an aftershow smile

Great! And then, apparently a complete week off. The venue is again available for the October 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29.

I'm just curious to see how many dates in total Prince and the N.P.G. will play in Chicago?

21-nite stand? Not sure... 10 would be just great.

It's OK to have contrary opinions about the man - lively discussions and counterpoint are good. But there are enough threads in the PMM or even Assoc Artists forum for that. There are even specific threads in PMM now to vent about his awful touring band and his awful tours/concerts for the past years.


 


Why do you have to come in here where people are talking about an actual concert coming up in a few days, for which people are buying tickets and excited - and poop on them? It's like, "Oh here are all the suckers and idiots who are going to see his inevitably awful show; let's jump in here and rub it in their faces!"


 


Again, I'm not saying their p.o.v. is invalid or not allowed - I'm saying it's not good etiquette to come smash on people's fun on this thread.


 



Good point. Fellow naysayers, let the Chicago folks have their fun and come and post your thoughts in this thread:

Anyone notice the seating chart on Ticketmaster's site is different for the 24th and 25th? I got tics in sec. 110 on the 25th. As you can see 110 is different both nights and is not as good as I hoped if going by the 24th seating chart. Confused!!!!!!!!!!

waah waah waah. we're Prince fans. on a Prince site. there are like 8,000 currently active threads on this site to go piss and moan about Prince and what a shithead he is and how awful his shows are. can we have this one to be excited about going to a Prince concert?

and there are other topics and threads that aren't about prince as well so are u gonna go in those threads and tell them THIS IS A PRINCE SITE HOW DARE U SPEAK OF ANY OTHER ARTIST!

and no one is stopping those from being excited about going 2 a show ..knock yourself out but the day someone tells me 2 stop voicing my freedom of speech is the day i will be able 2 smack some sense into prince.

oh wait how dare the red hot chilli peppers put out a new album and actually do songs from that album in concert and not due under the bridge? oh wait ..they do DO THAT

oh wait how does every other artist manage 2 put their videos up on youtube and not threating 2 sue their fans because they dare post that video up or they the artist themselves, do it.

how dare any musician in the world challenge themselves creatively and expand their musical repiorte without having 2 cater 2 some fans on a website.

gee oh how dare the band/group/singer dare give a interview that interlectual and not cryptic by answering through a email

so again knock yourself out and have fun at the concerts, i'll be awaiting the thread that says "i went 2 all three shows or how many ever and i'm flat broke i can't pay my rent, insurance, feed myself and family but damn it was great 2 hear purple rain again"

man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81

It's actually NOT a good point. The title of this thread is "Prince Announces Welcome 2 Chicago Residency". Nowhere in it does it say anything about "only post here if you're discussing buying tickets". No one's trying to "poop on them". Why would someone let what me and a few others say ruin an experience for them in the first place? If they do, then that's really on them.

Believe me. It is so much better to be able to enjoy yourself at a Prince concert, than continue to be frustrated or unhappy with his new concerts...be very happy you're not in the latter group.

That's why I don't let the complainers bother me cuz at the end of the day, I'm having the time of life and don't have to rely on watching old videos for the 100th time just to get satisifed.

So go on and have yourself a ball! cool You'll discover its like a big ole party that you wish never stopped.

I wish I as able to go. If Prince performs a little closer to the NJ/NJ/CT/PA area I'm going! cool cool cool cool cool

It sounds aS though the 24th had the stage pointing in the wrong direction. Supposedly, they reversed it all so that people who had bought good seats still get good seats. Sounds nutty to me.

In some cases it can make a huge difference but gosh u gotta b able 2 rely on the shown seating chart?! I did read this on their site though:

well that is understandable if its different performers.. Or hockey etc.. cause things are set up differently.. but for the SAME performer... same tour.. 1 night later.. the seats should be the same. Ticketmaster are idiots... We were looking for good seats and tossing back crappy ones. .and after we did this for a while ticket master locked us out.. WTF!!! We called & they said you can only pull and choose for so long and then the system blocks you. SOO stupid....

Hey gang.. My husband called Ticket Master.. The lady said that was VERY strange & the seating charts SHOULD be the exact same for both nights... She said she was gonna talk to the Promoter and find out WHICH chart was right..

She said NO ONE else had brought this to her attention yet.. SO if you are not happy with your seats cause of the odd charts.. CALL TICKETMASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let them know your unhappy.. Hell its bad enough we are paying WAY to much for these tickets... but lets at least get what we THOUGHT we were gonna get.....

It's no fun being an annoying subway preacher if everyone on the train is screaming Hallelujah! Do whatI do and just turn up your headphones and let them scream whatever they want. They're not going to convert anyone and they're just rattling off the same elitist propaganda they have been since December of 2010. They're going to post on every thread involving this concert and any other Chicago shows anyway. Have fun on the 24th and 25th to everyon who got tickets. I'm holding out for that first week of October if they announce dates.

If you google "United Center Seating Charts" you'll notice that section 110 is in front of section 216 on all of them. The other one is most likely a computer error. Most arenas upper sections are fixed numerically and cannot move. Only the floor space is reconfigurable. Hope that helps you all figure out where you'll be seated.

If that link is correct, that would mean this very thread shouldn't be here. It's not talking about how to get there, or where to meet other orgers, where to eat, or the show itself (hasn't happened yet). So, you just negated yourself by even posting that.

And our criticisms aren't "general". Oh, we're VERY specific about what's not cool about them, and on top of that, we are indeed talking about THESE particular concerts and what they may entail. Once the shows actually happen, trust and believe, we'll be talking about what went on (or better yet, what didn't).

I would call United Center directly and inquire as they would know better that anyone where their sections are in their arena.

Their number is 1-312-455-7000.

They would probably also be able to let you know if you have a legitimate grievance.

I just got off the phone with a Ticketmaster rep. They say that there are two different setups w/r/t the 100 level tickets on the 24th and the 25th and the maps denoting the 24th and 25th on Ticketmaster.com are accurate.

Odd. I'm in section 118. I'm going to assume that I'm still down by the arrow point.

Why would Ticketmaster have the different sections in different places for the 2 dates? And not just the same picture? Again, odd.

or this why the tickets that I ordered for the 24th are not printable until September 10th? did they realize the screw up and have to change everyone's seating after all the tickets are accounted for?

If you are in section 118 on 24, you will be watching Prince's ass. You supposed to be in section 106, they reversed the stage!

What a mess! Somebody saying it just changes on 25! lol

seems to be answered here. http://prince.org/msg/12/386704 I'm a little more relaxed. But I will wait to hear from Ticketbastard to my own inquiry before I feel like I'll be in the clear.

This is a complete mess!! If you go on Ticket broker sites.. they have the arrow pointing left some right.. WHY would they change the 100 sections?? Some one on Ticketmaster said they would just put up cardboard signs the second night? WHY?? why change things? What a joke. I wonder if Prince is seeing or hearing about all this crap.. sad we MAY have great seats.. MAY have shitty seats.. depends on that flippin arrow...

Prince United Center Monday, September 24th at 8:00PM Don’t worry – for the show on September 24th - your view, seat and section in the lower bowl (sections 101-122) will not change! Everything remains exactly as it was when you first purchased. However, since the event went on sale, the stage and lower bowl (sections 101-122) have changed direction in unison. To view the seating chart that has been created exclusively for this night’s performance, please click here. What do I need to do? You’re all set – just keep your original tickets and enjoy the event. If you need anything else, we’re always here for you – just hit reply and ask us or visit Ticketmaster.com!

I bought two tickets, one for the 24th and another (much better) one for the 25th. Do you think there will be much different between the shows or did I waste my money? I know Prince experiments a lot with his concert performances but I want to make sure.

We saw 5 shows in Chicago in 2004 .. altho the base of the show is the same... he DOES do a few different songs.. or maybe changes the order and stuff a bit each show.. Plus he may kid the audience differently or joke with the band or dancers differently. I would say seeing 2 shows is NOT a big deal.. we are going to both too. smile

Now what I can't figure out is that purple/lavender background. First I thought it was a painted wall, then realised it's a wooden wall with purple smoke?! Or has it been painted on after the photo?

On closer look it appears as if he could be wearing a wig, the roots look shorter than the rest. I am not familiar with African hair, and this is something that only they can tell if he's gone bald or not.

PRINCE TO DEBUT NEW ARTIST ANDY ALLO AT HIS “WELCOME 2 CHICAGO” AFTER-JAM AT CHICAGO’S HOUSE OF BLUES ON SEPTEMBER 24 - IN SUPPORT OF THE “REBUILD THE DREAM” FOUNDATION

For more information and the press release, click on the continue reading button below.....

Chicago, IL—Andy Allo, funk/soul artist extraordinaire, has been announced to perform live at Prince’s after-jam at Chicago’s House of Blues on September 24, following a special performance by Prince himself, at his “Welcome 2 Chicago” engagement. The “Welcome 2” event will be held at the United Center earlier that evening, in support of the Rebuild the Dream foundation, founded by Van Jones, whose mission is to mobilize thousands of everyday people who come together to build strong vibrant communities, and to fix the U.S. economy from the ground up.

Allo, who opens for Prince on-tour and is a guitarist/vocalist in his band, The New Power Generation, will be releasing her sophomore CD on Prince’s NPG Records on September 20 titled “Superconductor.” The album is Executive Produced by Prince, and features six self-penned tracks by Allo, with three songs co-written by Prince - “Superconductor,” “The Calm” and “Gone.”

As soon as we felt Andy Allo's energetic presence on tour with r band,” says Prince, “we knew she'd b leading her own revolution soon!"

Adds Allo, “Touring with Prince & The NPG has been a challenging and rewarding experience, and ‘Superconductor’ is a work of art that encapsulates the journey thus far." A poet, songwriter, singer and dancer, Allo has been a member of The New Power Generation since 2011. Allo will continue to tour with Prince in conjunction with the release of “Superconductor.”

If you look for only one ticket you might find something on Ticketmaster. Looking for 2 or more might kickback a negative resule because the system looks for connected seats only. Also check out StubHub.com or eBay.

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

I would not hold my breath for a weekend date in Chicago. The second show is not selling that well and chances are the third night may not happen if sales don't pick up. That is the reason that third date has not gone on sale yet. What this means for rumored Detroit dates I don't know. I would like to think Detroit would handle at least two Prince shows but the economy here sucks worse than Chicago so you never know.

Apparently Ticketmaster is not aware that the shows aren't selling well. I just checked and there is nothing available for 9/24. The only seats available for 9/25 are in the nosebleeds (300s). Where are all the tickets? The broker sites and Stubhub don't have great seats, most of theirs are behind the stage. I got good seats for both nights, so I am happy. I intially wondered with the small window of time and the worst nights of the week - Monday and Tuesday if there might be a problem selling tix. However, from what I have heard and seen the tix are selling, well they have sold. So, I found your comment interesting. Do you have a source regarding the sales?

Yeah, I thought the same thing. The Ryder Cup is in Chicago that week, too - and Sweetie wants to go to a practice round. I am not going to stand for hours at a GA show for Andy - especially if I'm going to have to drag my tired ass around a golf course the next day. lol

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

We pulled up a ton of ticket brokers all over the place and they ALL have ALOT of tickets for sale.. so does Ebay and Craigslist... They may of sold from the arena.. but how many butts will fill the seats is the question..?? He needs to figure stuff out soon tho cause the lady we talked to that is a big head of Live nation ticket sales.. who works directly with the United Center said that the Wed. date is being looked at by others as is the early part of October.. so Prince dear.. if you are wanting more shows at the U.C.. you better book um'.. smile Personally I think 2 is fine.. He can go to Detriot Minnesota etc... let them enjoy.. ;O)

I also live in the Detroit area, and would be that at LEAST 2 shows would sell out. Maybe 3. Any more than that, I doubt it.

What could be a big draw is a two-tiered Detroit visit. "Cheaper" tickets at a large venue like The Palace, and more expensive VIP tickets at somewhere like the Fox or Opera House (maybe even with a rehearsal or meet & greet package as an option).

For many, many years Detroit was his second home, and I think it's still one of his biggest fanbases. Poor economy or not, people will still find a way to go to the concert.

Unless whatever dozens of volunteers who receive the giveaway tickets resultingly figure as filler, I can bet minimum 50% of the seats of each show's audience will be empty.

I said the second show was the problem. There are a ton of the highly expensive VIP tickets available (at those prices I can see why) and in the 300 level (which are also ridiculously priced) you can easily buy 8 seats at a time. Plus as Orionforever mentioned, the ticket brokers and resellers still have a ton. I am sure Prince doesn't care about the latter as that means they still sold from the venue so the $$ is in his pocket, but that may not equate to butts in the seats and a half filled arena.

And Se7en, I agree I would think Detroit would sell well, his history here is greater than it has ever been in Chicago. But a lot would depend on nights of the week. Weekend dates will sell better but it is cheaper to book dates on weekdays and we know Prince is cheap. If he booked a Friday-Sunday trio in Detroit, I have no doubt it would sell well, but at these prices I am not sure it would sell out. I definitely like your idea of a two-tiered visit. Very forward thinking which is why I doubt we will see it happen from Prince.

I personally wish he would do at least one intimate show, like at the Chicago Theatre or a similar venue. A night of non-hits. That would be great to see. I know he's doing the Andy Allo aftershow at House of Blues, but that will be focused on Andy. I would love to see him play some of his more obscure material to an intimate crowd of fans who will appreciate it. I have tix to both United Center shows thus far though.

WARNING: If Prince doesn't sell enough tix on a certain date (say, the 25th, in this case) he could potentially cancel the date with very little notice... It happened to me for the first night of the W2A gig at the Izod in New Jersey. I had to purchase another ticket for the date of the third show and pay $150 extra to change the dates of my flight, as well as having to change hotel dates. I was not very happy with the extra trouble and expense, although I did get very good floor seats on the third night of the W2A show and ultimately had a great time... BTW the third date was on a Friday night and sold a lot more tickets than the original cancelled date of the first W2A concert, which was scheduled on a Tuesday...

This would be a very cool idea.. he could bill the show as a show for Hard Core fans only.. not the type that when asked say "OH Purple rain (or 1999) is my favorite song..

but the ones of us who would say 'Love U in me" Or "Lust U always" as ours..

I also think a huge problem is these tickets are just TOO much.

Prince forgets that his main fan base is probably from 35-50 A good group of us have bills, mortgages, kids, car payments etc.. to drop such large amounts on multiple tickets is rough.

We did it.. going to both shows. .but we will have to cut and skimp BIG TIME later.... sigh...

It 2004 the best seats were $75... such a deal. I was right at the stage several nights.. we went to 7 of the shows in 2004.. 5 in Chi Town..

And with it being a week night this time.. they should of sold the tickets for alot less...

It may of happened before.. but I highly doubt Prince would cancel the show on the 25th and then re schedule ANOTHER show at a later date..

Now I could see him canceling a show cause of poor ticket sales... OR if he already had 3 or more shows booked canceling one in the middle.. but it just wouldn't make sence to play Monday, Cancel Tuesday and then re sell tickets to say Oct. 1st. that would be a total mess for Ticket master.. In 2004 he had to cancel 2x... 1 time cause he was sick.. a 2nd time cause of Johns child drowning. but he rescheduled the shows weeks later and you got to either turn in your tix. for your $ back OR you got the exact same seats for the new dates. We will just have to wait and see...

Not to belabor the obvious but I've seen fans on here checking out flights and hotels for these shows but the price of the ticket is the bank breaking expense? Concerts are not a neccesity of life and attending multiple shows by a single artist is definitely splurging. I have a friend who is still crying over(and paying off the cards) the price she paid to go to all 6 W2A shows in NYC/NJ and the bottom line it's always the fans choice. Spend what you can afford and if the prices are too much then there's the option of not going. These price have been pretty consistent for the entire run of this tour with the exception of the LA Forum shows. The cost shouldn't be a surprise but a given aftr almost 2 years.

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

I don't think he's canceling the 25th. It looks like a lot of tix were sold on Ticketmaster--enough that it wouldn't warrant canceling. Remember that's the extent of both Prince and Live Nation's interests. Tix resold on broker sites don't have any further effect on them. United Center holds around 23,000 people. There are a little over 900 tix on Stubhub/Ebay (I think they're the same) for each night right now. Other broker sites seem to average about 100-200 tix each. Yes, there may be some empty seats, but I can't imagine that if the place is even 70% sold he would cancel on all those fans. I would guestimate that least 15,000 seats are sold to actual people. And Chicago has a big pay date coming up--the 15th. City workers and many business pay on the 1st and the 15th, so there may be spike in ticket sales then.

I wouldn't hold out for a show on the 26th though unless he does a smaller venue, which I am personally hoping for.

Thanks for the info. There are still premium seats available for the 100 level section for both nights but yeah at least official box office tickets for the 24th are sold out! I just checked Madonna's tickets (who's performing on the 19th and 20th at the United Center btw) and looks like she still got a lot of 100 level seats available for both nights...I'd say so far it looks pretty successful for Prince besides people are still buying tickets as we speak so I'm sure venues are going to be pretty full for both nights!

Is there anything backing up the Detroit/MN rumors or is it just speculation?

I don't think he's canceling the 25th. It looks like a lot of tix were sold on Ticketmaster--enough that it wouldn't warrant canceling.

There are a little over 900 tix on Stubhub/Ebay (I think they're the same) for each night right now. Other broker sites seem to average about 100-200 tix each. Yes, there may be some empty seats, but I can't imagine that if the place is even 70% sold he would cancel on all those fans. I would guestimate that least 15,000 seats are sold to actual people.

I agree with PurpleChi about the tix and the intimate show. Didn't he do something like that to fill out his run in L.A.? It would be awesome if he threw in something like that for the folks who really know and appreciate the breadth of his catalog. I don't think anything is wrong with the hits-friendly arena shows, but an intimate one in the midst of them would be great because there would be less pressure to contend with casual fans for tix. That is what was so great about the three shows he did in one night in L.A. The Nokia Theatre show was all about hits, the Conga Room show just rocked and the Club Nokia show was a mix of new and old, popular and obscure.

About the tix, I agree that between all of the broker sites, you probably have less than 20% of the tickets for each night, so I cannot imagine an arena that is 50% empty. Also, many people wait until those inflated broker prices drop and buy tix closer to the show date. Lastly, those 100 level seats on the broker sites do not appear to be premium to me as most of them are behind the stage.

I think he will be fine. Reports of the W2A shows demise seem premature.

Interesting... The two Madonna shows here locally at a major venue are completely sold out--even the nosebleed seats.

BTW when Prince came here locally last year the shows were completely packed--if there were any empty seats I certainly didn't see any! lol

Also, I should have qualified my "warning" in regard to the W2A concerts at the Izod in 2010 by adding that the concerts which followed those at Madison Square Garden were a complete success in comparison to those held at the Izod in New Jersey. Similarly, the concerts held at the Oracle Arena in Oakland were completely packed--if there were any empty seats, they were few and far between. In a similar fashion, the Forum in LA, on the last two W2A dates in May 2011, were completely packed and the crowds on both nights raised the roof off of the old building. lol

Section 112 at Madonna's show at United is $372.33.

Section 112 at Prince's show at United are around $163.00.

Madonna's ticket prices range from $90.00 to $355.00 for normal seat.

Prince's ticket prices range from $49.50 to $149.50.

Madonna's best VIP package is $1750 for one person.

Prince's best VIP package is $1500 for two people.

Who needs to lower their prices?

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

I am curious as to what city you are in when you say "here locally" because Madonna's shows for Sept. 19 and 20 are not sold out here in Chicago. I just checked and there are still premium seats available on TM. Unlike Prince's shows where you can only find 300 level seats on TM, there are choice 100 level seats there for Madonna. I pulled section 102 row 19 seats 8 and 9, which is a great view at the United Center for her stage set up. The tickets are $373 each.

I also see that StubHub has twice as many tickets available for Madonna's shows at the United Center than it does for Prince. Madonna's tix went on sale in February. Prince's went on sale last week. They are playing the same venue, but Prince has more seats because of his stage set up. So it seems that Prince's shows have sold better than Madonna's in terms of actual ticket sales. She will gross more because her tix cost twice as much. However, I think he has done well for his two dates in Chicago given the short notice and nights of the week he's performing.

BTW, I was at the last NJ show on Friday night and the MSG show on Saturday. The NJ show was pretty crowded. I saw empty seats here and there on the 100 level but nothing major. As we know, MSG was sold out. I had a great time at both shows, and I know I will have a great time at both Chicago shows as well. Chicago gets up for Prince. Remember he did five sold out shows at the Allstate Arena during the Musicology tour. He announced that tour months in advance and had premiums nights of the week. I will never forget seeing him on a Saturday night and how loud the audience sang that part of Little Red Corvette - "It was Saturday night . . . . Awwww, the memories. biggrin

why is there always a desperation by some on here to show how few tix are shifting. There's still over a week to go, there's been no promo, no video, no big hit single or album and the tix still appear to be shifting. Even the most hardened critic cannot fail to be impressed that he pulls this off 'most of the time' - not always!.

Good luck to him, he will rightly do the usual hits show as this is NOT a series of gigs for the hardcore - again some fans just don't get it. Oh and don't bring that shit about in 84 & 86 70% of the show was from a new album nonsense - he's in a different place now with a back catalogue that the masses want to hear. If I see Elton, Stevie, the stones etc I wanna hear the hits -simples!

lol Right. Prince's tix are in line with what I paid to see Sade and George Michael at the same venue in Chicago. Madonna's aren't in line with anyone that I have ever purchased so I have no frame of reference for her prices.

I honestly believe a large group of Prince's fans want his arena booking potential to crumble so he'll be forced to do small clubs and venues from now on. Hence he'd more than likely be playing to his smaller hardcore fanbase and not the casual fanbase that fills arenas. The fact that LiveNation is working with him(almost 2 years in) and he can still book arenas without having a new CD to push or a hit single on the charts speaks to that not happening anytime soon.

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.

Prince adds third concert to his "Welcome 2 Chicago" residency:

http://www.stltoday.com/e...f6878.html

Prince has announced a third show for his "Welcome 2 Chicago" residency at the United Center in Chicago.

The third show is Sept. 26. The show will go on sale at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The previously announced shows are Sept. 24 (sold out) and Sept. 25.

Doors are at 7 p.m., with the shows at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $49.50-$149.50 and will go on sale at livenation.com and through Ticketmaster outlets.

The tour is in support of Rebuild the Dream, a mobilization of everyday people who come together to build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up. 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.

In a statement, Van Jones, co-founder and President of Rebuild the Dream, said “We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with a legend like Prince,” said c “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.”

Also get information at rebuildthedream.com.

Peace ... & Stay Funky ...

There's a restaurant in the United Center. They probably open so people can just eat dinner there, if they want - rather than trying to find another restaurant nearby.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Bellanoche, I just love this post. It is such a reminder of how in-demand Prince really is. What is funny is that people on here claim that Prince is so out-of-touch because he's not on YouTube, but apparently the rest of the world didn't get the memo. Anytime someone can pull off the sales Prince pulls off without a current album, video, etc. and within mere weeks of an arena performance speaks to his relevance in today's culture. Madonna, Sade and other similar artists had to put tickets on sale months (I think Sade was a full year) beforehand. Prince is truly special in that regard.

BTW, I was at the last NJ show on Friday night and the MSG show on Saturday. The NJ show was pretty crowded. I saw empty seats here and there on the 100 level but nothing major. As we know, MSG was sold out. I had a great time at both shows, and I know I will have a great time at both Chicago shows as well. Chicago gets up for Prince. Remember he did five sold out shows at the Allstate Arena during the Musicology tour. He announced that tour months in advance and had premiums nights of the week. I will never forget seeing him on a Saturday night and how loud the audience sang that part of Little Red Corvette - "It was Saturday night . . . . Awwww, the memories. biggrin

Bellanoche, I just love this post. It is such a reminder of how in-demand Prince really is. What is funny is that people on here claim that Prince is so out-of-touch because he's not on YouTube, but apparently the rest of the world didn't get the memo. Anytime someone can pull off the sales Prince pulls off without a current album, video, etc. and within mere weeks of an arena performance speaks to his relevance in today's culture. Madonna, Sade and other similar artists had to put tickets on sale months (I think Sade was a full year) beforehand. Prince is truly special in that regard.

What did expect from the "MasterPiece" "SuperConductor"???

why is there always a desperation by some on here to show how few tix are shifting. There's still over a week to go, there's been no promo, no video, no big hit single or album and the tix still appear to be shifting. Even the most hardened critic cannot fail to be impressed that he pulls this off 'most of the time' - not always!.

Good luck to him, he will rightly do the usual hits show as this is NOT a series of gigs for the hardcore - again some fans just don't get it. Oh and don't bring that shit about in 84 & 86 70% of the show was from a new album nonsense - he's in a different place now with a back catalogue that the masses want to hear. If I see Elton, Stevie, the stones etc I wanna hear the hits -simples!

I honestly believe a large group of Prince's fans want his arena booking potential to crumble so he'll be forced to do small clubs and venues from now on. Hence he'd more than likely be playing to his smaller hardcore fanbase and not the casual fanbase that fills arenas. The fact that LiveNation is working with him(almost 2 years in) and he can still book arenas without having a new CD to push or a hit single on the charts speaks to that not happening anytime soon.

yeahthat

These are facts and proof everyone wrong who say Prince is no longer relevant or whatever else they like to claim. - Just because he is not doing what they expect and want him to do. He is successful, and that should make any Prince fan happy. But some people on here are the strangest sort of "fans" I have ever encountered anyway ... no matter, all power to Prince, he is doing it right!!!! biggrin

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.

I'm just north of the very political center of Europe and when last year - no it was already 2 years ago - I attended the Arnhem I'M DANCING WITH DRACULA show I was more than happy with that known setlist that he'd been doing for almost 6 years then.

But trust me, he will put in a few extra ingredients. You might have noticed that no show is the same.

let's do a run down shall we?

raspberry beret? yep

let's go crazy? yep

1999? yep

shhh? yep

stupid ass sampler set instead of playing the actual songs themselves? yep

purple rain? yep

am i missing something here in the repeated "songlists" for the last eight years? NOPE

Are you going to the concert?

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.

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.

Normally there is a simple policy at Prince shows:

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

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

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!

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.

Prince introduced Streisand herself & walked among the crowd of wowed music industry titans like the royal humble king he is.

I find he usually performs more encores and has more energy on 2nd and 3rd nights for W2A--at least the ones I attended (aithough he did a blistering guitar solo of Bambi the first night in Oakland eek before he cut the encores short).

Hey, I was first a fan around '82 or '83 until '95--when I bought The Gold Experience on cassette for my waterproof Sony Walkman. lol I recently came back to Prince after a 15 year absence--but that doesn't mean I can't be critical when he messes up. And, this time he did, big time. I will always be a fan of his music that I love--but it doesn't mean that people can't criticize when he doesn't deliver--and we know that he can. The day I think he can't--I will be the first to say so. In saying that, I saw him deliver some great performances in 2010 and 2011--dude still got it, when he wants to! lol

I predict the fans tonight will get a killer show after what apparently happened last night. If I were in Chicago I would definitely go.

Uhh, a lot of those songs seem similar to last night's show...

And it's a waste of setlist space IMO to have cover songs like Don't Stop... when he could sing one of his own songs. He sang that last night too.

Was the sampler part the same songs as the 24th? If he didn't take any of the sampler songs from the 24th and sing them in full tonight, then I won't have felt like I missed anything because the sampler songs were really the songs I was wanting to hear in full.

Yep smile I was there getting funky and what not......

Eh...... I didn't really think the cover songs were a waste of space 'cause they actually sounded good! O_O Then again that was my first Prince concert ever! So I would've cheered him on even if he sang Old MacDonald
