Mayte says she "going to Minnesota" next week -- part of the tribute? https://www.instagram.com...KiKBNA_XL/

That's awesome.

I'm not at all surprised that Mayte will be in town for all of the tributes. Actually, I would be shocked if she weren't there. Clearly, she's still in love with P.

I have friends who are no longer able to go to the show. Let me know if anyone who is in town would be interested in 2 Club Level seats.

I have them posted in the marketplace also:

Still to quite for me or for my liking about the concert. Like I have said before no real tweets from the offical twitter site. No new acts announced like I thought there would be. No updates on rehearsals. Are they even doing reahearsals? I really hope they are just not throwing something together and everyone shows up a day or two before and they just wing it.

Liv Warfield just posted on FB that she's in Minnesota. Shelby posted something the other day about PP opening and said she was looking forward to coming back to Minnesota. But I'm with you....way to quiet for my liking.

You would think they would be trying to drum up excitement. Kind of shocked to that no one has been added and no rumors of someone being added.

I wonder if this was a last minute addition, cause on the same page it says she will be playing Leiria, Portugal on the same date. :O

Thia thing has always been weird to me because of the lack of publicity. Makes me think there is no PPV or online deal in place. Though Londell tweeted that today is a big day...so maybe something tribute concert related?

The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting on various acts' connections to Prince ahead of Thursday's sold out tribute concert. For those of you going, thanks for representing.

If u don't have tickets, but want to go to the tribute concert on the 13th, there r over 2k tix on Stub Hub, with seats in all areas of the arena. Prices are dropping dramatically, with many now less than the original Ticketmaster price.

This really sucks. A lot of people were on ticket master right away and were told nothing was available. Right away tons of tickets showed up on stubhub for a lot more than face value. How did all these tickets end up on stubhub in the first place?

I'm pretty sure tickets are put aside for scalpers for a few different websites. Just like when ticketmaster puts aside tickets or decides to release them slowly. By the way, I just pulled up section 125 for $80. Floor seats are insane. But rear floor seats I think are about $150. Anyone know if this show will be live streamed?

I've heard nothing about a live stream so I would assume that's a no.

Londell tweeted today about a special late night pasty Thursday night...perhaps a tribute after show party?

from solarham.com : "October 11, 2016 @ 00:35 UTC CME Observed (UPDATED) A faint, slow moving coronal mass ejection (CME) observed on Sunday is expected to possibly reach Earth by October 13th. Enhanced geomagnetic activity may be possible at higher latitudes. More updates in the days ahead. UPDATE: A Minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch will be in effect beginning late on October 13th (Thursday) UTC time. The above mentioned CME could deliver a glancing blow to our geomagnetic field. Sky watchers at higher latitudes should be alert for visual aurora within the next 72 hours." maybe a sky concert will be added too? cool

So if this was not going to be televised why in the world would they get artists that Prince fans really don't care to see. Why wouldn't they line up all of the former Prince protege artists for one mega concert? I thought John Mayer, Aguilera, Baker etc were to get a TV deal like the Michael Jackson tribute?

The line-up is set, and the show is just two days away now. If it's not televised, we'll see it eventually. Right now, I just want Prince to be celebrated. Once that happens, I'm good.

My understanding is Prince was a big Anita Baker fan. I don't think she was added for TV purposes. But this whole thing has been such a mess it'possible they were working on a TV deal and it fell through.

How so more associates are joining the show and nothing is stoping the show from being filmed to be broadcast at a later date. A broadcast can be shown on Netflix, Hulu, Youtube Red, Tidal, or put on any of the cable systems. The family could sell DVD's if they want to.

If I lived in the area I would have brought ticket for this because I knew more people would be joining.

I agree wholeheartedly. One way or the other, we will see it. Hopefully, they can monetize it before the bootleggers take it over.

Beautiful Instagram post from Marcus Anderson:

https://www.instagram.com...cJIfnh1rY/
I have to say that today I had to make one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make in life. Knowing my obligations to my career and knowing the obligations to my heart makes choosing a bit difficult at times. I feel I always make the right choices but sometimes I just don't know. Being a member of one of the tightest and best bands ever to walk the face of the earth has giving me more than just notoriety and success. Me being apart of the New Power Generation and I think I speak for all of us, we are a family. Sitting in the rehearsals this week was so therapeutic and freeing. Seeing all of the decades of musicians that have worked with Prince, be in the same place at the same time to honor this Icon was beyond amazing. Time traveling throughout the music while still being in the present rehearsal was just magical and us being able to play it is one of the gift that music gives to you. Prince gave the world so much music, but he also gave us to you as his musical offspring so we just want to keep his legacy going. Thursday night will be nothing short of EPIC and Magical! Those of you attending, you better hold on to your seats! The NPG is gonna deliver the Purple Funk 100%! I still thank GOD the creator for the opportunity to have worked with him and so many great individuals. He gave us these gift to make sure we help people and ourselves through the good and bad times which is very much needed today. So let the music do that and free your minds. I know it's a lot I'm saying but basically I'm saying Prince we all miss you and all love you!!! -Also be ready in 2017 because I'm super motivated and I am going ALL OUT with what I learned from Boss Man. (Sorry for any typos)
