I think he wants to do three... At £70 i think he'll do one show and at £10 there will be two max. 1400 peeps is a lot to gather..

Half hour to pack out a 1,400 venue?...not so sure about that...

It took an hour for 1000 at EB.

Previous form would suggest 1hr 15mins shows

1st show at Electric Ballroom was 1hr 15. The set played up to the first encore of both EB 2nd show and SBE were both about 1hr 15. All three were much the same setlist up to that point.

It seems he has that pretty fixed, with the encores then going off wherever. At SBE I was by the sound desk which had a copy of the setlist on it.. sure enough it only showed up to that first encore.

It's just been confirmed that 1st show tonight is DOORS at 6pm not the show. So if allow 45min turnaround between shows then 1st show earliest 6:30-7:45, 2nd show 8:30-9:45, 3rd show 10:30-11:45...

Feels a bit cheap to me..

Makes sense, so encores become a seperate show

thinking will casually stroll up around 7pm (catch a 6pm train to kings x) and see if i get in. If there is no q then I can't see a 2nd/3rd show happening. if there is a q i reckon i should at least get in for the 2nd show.

Maybe. I would suspect all three will start with that same set, but yes, perhaps one will rock, one will funk, and the other will chill on acoustic..

Now, if the man put that together as one show for 15,000 in the O2 Arena, he might just have himself the greatest Prince gig of all time.... eek

I can't see an acoustic set working in large arenas, I think he does the sampler set for an equivalent at big venues.

Will be interesting to see size of venues and the type set he does in Manchester.

So people there by 4pm sound like getting in - sounding good for future shows!

Although having been lucky enough to see the second 2hr show at EB for £10, a likeley shorter show for a likely £70 sounds less good.

Presumably if he does play Brixton Academy at some point, that would just be one show?

So will they let 1400 people for each of the three shows (be that new or people who come out of first show and rejoin)?

Is that the plan?

Good job if you can manage it.

Come out of a Prince gig, thinking it was great and how you'd love to do it all again right away.

And actually be able to!

Wow! SBE is looking more and more like the bargain of the century. Could get pricey for some fans tonight if they get a shot at all three shows. I reckon if there's no queue formed for the 1 to 3 show, they might just let the second show fans stay in the building...maybe...

I hope he goes back on this 2 show, 3 show thing and gives you all a full on 2 and a half hour job. Last weekend at SBE just felt epic.

I am still jealous of you guys today but made the decision not to travel up. Ive had a bad migraine since 11:30am this morning so a train trip, queue and loud Prince gig probably wouldn't have made me feel too hot.

Have a great night everyone cool
