Why are Prince concerts Dorkfests??

Don't tell me I'm the only person who's ever noticed, why is the crowd always 90% white dorks? Why is Prince appealing to geeks and the uncool? Say what you will, but it's true and you know it. By the way, I'm cool as a mofo

i think 90% is an exaggeration. i would say about 30% of the real dorks are white, old, bald & about 7 foot tall. they always stand right at the front so no one else can see

So..who are the cool folks?

The concert hoe in a slinky dress tryna push her way up to the front thinking shes that fine in looks to do so while others waited forever to get that position?

the drunken douche dressed in the latesr fashion...who got the concert hoe drunk in the first place?

the too kool for (play)skool ones at the bar 50% of the tme acting like they dont even care someones on stage? whyd they even come? to be 'seen?"

If you think you're cool you're just a dork who hasn't found out yet.

I understand. If any of us are acting, and only we truly know, we should be smacked with the back of Samuel Jacksons's hand.

Prince concerts are Dorkfests because he appeals to "the cool dudes" as well as music purists and everyone in-between.

Stangely at the InigO2 he always called the people sat on the balcony "the Cool Dudes", so the Cool Dudes are the Dorks......so who were we in the mosh pit? lol

PS. 2oldskool4U I'm white, bald(ing) but younger than P

those that CHOOSE to sit up on the balcony are just dicks, not dorks, and it's always the same for them, they always get humoured by whoever is performing because they just dont do anything most of the time. Mosh pit is not really an accurate description of the fornt area at a Prince gig, slags cramming in up front, like already discussed and 90% dorks everywhere else.

Being white don't make you a dork, they just make up the majority because there is ALWAYS a strangely lacking black pressence.

Next time anyone sees him in action, take note and have a good look around, you will be amazed how many dweebs are sharing your elbow space.

Because the cool, young people are too busy going to clubs to dance to newer, better music.

What was crazy was the last meshuggah concert I went to. Apparently they're 'old' now, as far as the teenage metalheads are concerned, so I was expecting the crowd to be only older, gross metal dudes. Turns out there were tons of hot women, too. WAY more than any prince show I've been to.

LMAO My definition of "cool" fans 1. The ones who let me&my friend go to the front right by the stage at the after-party (muah <3) 2. The ones who actually sang along to Mr.Goodnight (XD) 3. people who scream and clap AFTER the guitar solo's done, not during!

But really, as long as you dance & have fun at the show and not watch the entire concert like this >> -_- lol you're cool in my book!


The concert hoe in a slinky dress tryna push her way up to the front thinking shes that fine in looks to do so while others waited forever to get that position?

totally hate it when they do that!!!

Excuse me? My favorite seat at any concert is the first row of the balcony, because you can see the stage perfectly and don't have some clown standing up in front of you all night.

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.

IMO it's people trying to relive their youth and it's really not working. The clothes that some women wear smile) Also, if you watch the Vegas show DVD you would think the average Prince fan is about 3 or 4 hundred lbs.

lol @ this thread. I'm assuming it was tongue in cheek but I think all us dorks, geeks, nerds, get to feel cool while we are watching/listening to Prince. If only for a short time wink
Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.

The other thing to recommend the balcony is that I (apparently) won't be anywhere near you. Yay, balcony!

If the dorks love the music then good for them. What I hate is people who go to concerts just because they think it's cool to be there and proceed to try and talk above the music about how many women they've banged and such forth. I once had a person like that by me at a gig, oh they were cool alright, in their own eyes, but they bloody annoyed me and anyone else who was there to enjoy the music.

Another example is when I watched Prince at Malahide castle, it was fine on the loud songs, but as soon as "Sometimes it Snows in April" came on, you couldn't hear the music over the self proclaimed cool peoples conversations.

Newer better music? Prince himself is a total dork, but his new music is better than the autotune non singing garbage most younger acts are putting out.
