Maybe they will be adding names to the line-up. But just Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Bilal, Mint Condition, Anita Baker, Morris Day and The Time is quite a line-up. I have a feeling they will be adding The Revolution and maybe a few others.

They could add names until the list circled the globe 7 times, and I'd still wouldn't be hearing what I want to hear. I was under the impression this is supposed to be a memorial for the fans not a concert. If this is a concert taking place in MN, then these threads are basically a waste of time for me and those like me.

It was always billed as a Tribute Concert. They could have (and SHOULD have) done a memorial weeks ago. I'd say, this is it.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there might be a few surprises. Anyway one thing I think we can all agree on is Prince would hate negativity so I'm not going to complain about the line-up, venue, PR etc. I'm just going to try my best to get tickets on Monday. smile

Here we go.....still isn't good enough for some. Jesus Christ!!!

I would say that's a pretty good line up. Kinda wish Mary J or Alicia Keys could make it, as I loved seeing P sing with them. But hey, I am just thankful right now.

Exactly! We have all been on pins and needles waiting for SOMETHING and we finally got it. I'm holding out hope they can televise it for those of us that can't make it or don't get tickets but I think we should stop with all the bitching and complaining and try to move forward. If someone can't do that they need to move off the thread in my opinion. I absolutely refuse to engage one on one with the negativity. Not doing it. Can't wait for everyone to be able to make this celebration of this amazing man's life!!!! (And I'm not going by the way, I'm just super happy for everyone that is!) 💜💜💜

Aren't Michael and Sonny part of NPG? Press release doesn't mention who all from NPG will be there other than Morris Hayes as band leader. Oh and Liv Warfield was specifically called out.

True. And I see that Liv Warfield is named, but no mention of Shelby J. Surely, she will be there. I think I saw her mention it on her FB some time ago. John Blackwell will be missed. I sure wish they could donate a portion of the proceeds for his treatment and recovery.

Yeah if Shelby isn't there than something is seriously f'd up. To me there were essentially 3 incarnations of NPG - the original lineup in the early 90s, the Musicology band and the Welcome 2 band. I'm hoping we get representation from all three.

Yeah if Shelby isn't there than something is seriously f'd up. To me there were essentially 3 incarnations of NPG - the original lineup in the early 90s, the Musicology band and the Welcome 2 band. I'm hoping we get representation from all three.


Elisa needs to be there too!

Yes. Andy Allo would be great too. I still think it will be a great show. Probably won't satisfy the die hards but then I suspect nobody but the man himself could do that anyway. wink

Surprise news arrived late Thursday: A long-rumored/massive Prince tribute concert will go down Oct. 13 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, not at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis as previously thought.

City Pages just got confirmation from Xcel spokesperson Jora Bort -- this is for real!

Here's the lineup: Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Luke James, Bilal, Mint Condition, Morris Day & the Time, Judith Hill and Liv Warfield, the New Power Generation featuring Morris Hayes plus members of 3RDEYEGIRL.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 19 via the Xcel box office and Ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices were not made immediately available. MORE

[Edited 9/15/16 15:39pm]



I will take Chaka, Bilal, Mint, Mo'iss and the fellas, Judith, Liv, Mo and the NPG 'dem for the win Alex. biggrin

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit
and for that, I am eternally grateful....IDF

I wonder why Sheila E isn't going to be there.
It also occurred to me that maybe Andy Allo and some other of Prince's more recent protégés might be too emotional to play. Or they're not considers big enough stars - if he latter is the case this isn't about stardome; it's about Prince.

Looks like a good lineup though. I was happy and smiles when I first saw it and thought, "Finally! We're doing right by you."

Now I am starting to get a little spoiled and want more 🙂

I think it would be great if they sold official memorabilia which funds the estate. That could be a bigger dollar maker than anything, and I do care about that for furthering Prince's legacy.

Also I am really, really hoping there is a moment of silence and a prayer.

Lastly, I hope they televise it at some point. Even if they don't announce that until afterwards. That would enlarge Prince's legacy and satisfy those who can't go for whatever reason: illness, finances, conflicting schedules.

I'm so happy about this! Londel came through. THANK YOU and on behalf of Prince in my heart, Thank You again.

Keep up the good work 💜💜

My ideal tribute lineup would be: The revolution (with Andre, Dez, Brownmark, and Lisa lead on many songs), the time all the members past and present, Jill Jones, Sheila E, Appollonia 6, the NPG band, 3rdeyegirl, of course Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Bilal and maybe some local Minni acts who know some Prince songs because Prince is know to support unsigned and small artists in his hometown.

But I am happy is going to happen and I feel this event will help me get closure because the current lineup so far I am fans of the artists and they are very talented and I am please they can sing songs of Prince throughout various eras not just the 80s. But if Prince associates have plans to do more concerts in the future, then I will take what I can get and embraced it.

Who would have thought.

15 years after sitting and watching him during his soundcheck on the side seats on the right side of the stage and then asking him questions at the Excel Energy Center in St Paul in June 2001 at the Second CELEBRATION Rainbow Children We would now be attending his memorial A CELEBRATION of LIFE and Music at the same VENUE October 13th, 2016.

It does not make sense....only 15 years. I Treasure that I grabbed the chance the first time.

Having Anita Baker there man I am a huge fan of hers. And also she is doing well for herself financially and she knew how to invest her money as I think as I read she didn't like to do a whole lot of touring and plus she want to raise her son or children so that is why she stayed in and out of music business even at her prime. She also wrote some of her own hit songs and ching ching that what helped her nicely. I can see her will sang some good Prince's r&b and slower songs. She is also private like Prince is and I think I read in an interview after prince death she talked about his kindness.

But anyway, this lineup is very impressive to me and I think Prince would have been please. Very diversity of musicians just like the music that Prince gave us.

I would like to see Shelby J and Andy Allo and I have a gut feeling we are going to see more people added.

Yes I'd like to see Andy there because she and Prince were so close. A bit interesting that Liv Warfield was specifically called out. Isn't she considered part of NPG? But if it's the 91-93 band performing and Liv was specifically called out it makes me think that maybe Shelby, Elisa, Cassie might not be there. That would be a serious bummer.

There are so many great musicians and entertainers that he did work directly with they shouldn't need to book people his fans have never even heard of. But I'll take what I can get at this point.

This is very strange. I don't know why this entire quote is attributed to me. All I said was "Exactly!" The rest was written by someone else. This is not the first time I have noticed this happening in the past few days. Then, when I tried to respond directly to the quote, it would not show that part of the thread in the response window. That's why I have copied and pasted it here. It's very disconcerting. I do not use such a harsh tone and I certainly don't use profanity on this board. I'm hoping this splicing was accidental, and that it will not happen again.

I agree that Shelby should be there. Then again, if we are talking that Shelby should be there, shouldn't Tamar also be there? Am very surprised no mention of Andy Allo though - or does she count in 3rd eye girl?

Also, I'd love a MIXED Revolution - blending then and the Revolution2.0, and same for NPG.

Yes I'd like to see Andy there because she and Prince were so close. A bit interesting that Liv Warfield was specifically called out. Isn't she considered part of NPG? But if it's the 91-93 band performing and Liv was specifically called out it makes me think that maybe Shelby, Elisa, Cassie might not be there. That would be a serious bummer.

Liv released a solo CD after the NPG. She played several shows at Paisley Park and a couple at the Dakota. Prince was Executive Producer on her CD. Luke James opened for Liv at the Dakota shows. Prince was in attendance, but did not perform.

Oh interesting. I did not know that. Now we have a better idea of why he's involved. I wish we knew if Shelby was going to be there. If I knew for sure she wasnt going to be there I'd have second thoughts about getting tickets. I would love to hear her sing Misty Blue. She sang it at the family memorial in August.

I would really be stunned if Shelby is not there. They are probably just including her with the NPG. You can always go to Shelby's FB or Twitter page and ask her directly.

I'm happy as is but would like to see andre specifically on the list. And wish they didn't have performers who have absolutely no connection to prince. There are so many great musicians and entertainers that he did work directly with they shouldn't need to book people his fans have never even heard of. But I'll take what I can get at this point. It's been too long already for a proper goodbye.

That's the right attitude. What's important is celebrating P's life and legacy. And, I would not be at all surprised if they add more names to the line-up.


 


I keep thinking back to the BET tribute in 2010. Nobody was really crazy about that list of performers and they were chosen by Prince himself! I am hopeful that maybe a few more artists will be announced or maybe there will be some surprise guests. Just a shame that there seems to be tension between Sheila and the estate. Booking that concert with Morris Day only two days later and then reminding people of it last night on Twitter comes across as a big middle finger to the estate.

Hopefully she'll post about it today or over the weekend. If there's silence on social media then I'm inclined to believe there is some sort of falling out which would be a shame.

15 years after sitting and watching him during his soundcheck on the side seats on the right side of the stage and then asking  him questions  at the Excel Energy Center in St Paul in June 2001 at the Second CELEBRATION Rainbow Children We would now be attending his memorial A CELEBRATION of LIFE and Music at the same VENUE October 13th, 2016.


It does not make sense....only 15 years. I Treasure that I grabbed the chance the first time.


Now it means even more to pay my respect.

Honestly happy to see that this was pulled together and glad the venue changed. The lineup is ok with me as well, but I am hoping for a few suprises (Revolution, Mavis, Stehpanie Mills).

The one name I am really tripping on is Anita Baker......I don't know what to say. I have made my mind up to go just on that one name alone.

Is Anita Baker a Prince fan???? Is there anyway we can get her to sing Caught up in the Rapture????

I still say you go for the man not the line up.But geez and cheese i want my revolution.Many people got to really know prince because of the rev.I got to meet/book many bands and singers over the years while living near hershey pa. We also had the well known club called the Metron where my buddy Bret Michael played every week end til he left for LA. Bands seemed to be bigger in the 60's,70's,80's and 90's But,i have to really wonder how the rev feels.Most of the radio songs played are associated with them.Somebody better get them there cool Prince himself even said he cant go anywhere without being asked about the rev or lisa and wendy.I know after 86 they officially weren't prince and the revolution any longer.I wish some type of contract could of been signed that read if lead singer leaves we have the right to create as a band with our name and a new singer.Sorry just thought they should of got more love.Most talented band ever EVER

If someone asked me if I'd pay $20 to go to a Stevie Wonder concert, of course I would go. I'm local and I'm going to be online Monday anyway. I'm also free October 13. I figure I don't have an excuse not to go other than laziness. All the folks who fly out and book hotels make me feel like a wimp when I don't do stuff in my own backyard.

I skew toward the younger end of Prince fans and many of the "younger" acts don't ring a bell. It's going to be a long wait to hear anything I care about Prince had Tori on a list of his current 10 favorite artists; that wasn't just a promoter filling a spot. I think Prince would have wanted her there.

It'd be cool to do an org meetup near Xcel before the show. There's a bunch of bars and stuff in walking distance.

This is an interview of her talking about Prince wanting to come to see her sing and he did. Then he invited her to PP. Apparently she had gotten to know the girls from 3rd Eye Girl.

I feel really good about this now bc he would not have gone to see her sing if he didin't like her.

I was ready to hop on a plane and attend this tribute concert when it was first announced , but then things started getting weird. I am not sure what has happened with those in charge of Paisley Park and Sheila and the Revolution , but it needs to be resolved. You can not do a proper tribute without The Revolution , Sheila , The Family and Jill Jones. All of those people are the "original" Purple Family. At this point I am distancing myself from this whole thing and will just look forward to visiting Paisley Park in the future.

Sheila E. has a show that day. Remember that Chaka Khan couldn't do the BET Tribute because she had a prior engagement. You don't know if these other performers are unavailable for whatever reason. Some people will never be satisfied. Tori Kelly is a singer whose talent Prince appreciated. The same probably goes for Luke James. He may have felt the same way about John Mayer. Between the BET Tribute, Revolution shows at First Avenue and this tribute, I think we've had a wide variety of performers Prince worked with or appreciated. The bottom like is Prince is no longer with us, and I think that's why some people are finding fault with every tribute. Finding fault is tied to your grief.

I don't get the complaints about John Mayer. Dude is super talented and obviously had a lot of respect for Prince. Prince was all about real musicians playing real music and that's exactly who John Mayer is. I also don't get the if it's not these set of people then it's not the real deal thing. Prince had a long career, worked with a lot of different people. Sure it would be better if Sheila E and The Rev were going to be there, but someone like Shelby J worked with Prince for 10 years. She was still performing with him in 2016. She sang at the family memorial in August. I'd take her over Jill Jones any day.

Super dissapointing to me.

I was asssuming this would be something bigger...I didn't expect the star power of the Freddie Mercury tribute, but something bigger than what we got. EVen if they had to wait to do it next Spring (on the anniversary of his death) where they could have more time to organize a more world-wide spectacle for this, which is what he deserves.

Artist and bands from so many different genre's and generations would really have a chance to make it amazing.

The current lineup is really weak...no discrepect to any of them, and I love Stevie Wonder, but he's not exactly in his prime.

If it breaks when it bends, you better not put it in.

Great lineup. I would go just to see Stevie and John Mayer. I remember hearing Mayer do Starfish and Coffee years ago and he is one of the first people I have ever heard to a Prince cover on tour. No doubt those two will do a few songs together. Questlove should be the drummer instead of Hannah. If they added D'Angelo or Bruno Mars to the bill, it would be even better. The Time is great. Fuck I wish I could go. Why the fuck is it on a Thursday night?

They can still have something next year, perhaps on April 21. Right now, I'm thrilled that there is a tribute concert happening Oct. 13, as had been announced months ago by Tyka. If those plans had fallen through, that would have been a debacle that Prince does not deserve to have attached to his name. Besides which, I think they have put together a very impressive line-up: Bilal, The NPG, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Doug E. Fresh, Mint Condition, etc. I also think that other names will be added. And the tickets are reportedly starting ar $19.99!!! AND, IT IS A SHOW TO CELEBRATE PRINCE AND HIS AMAZING LEGACY!!!! What's not to like??? Can we PLEASE just have some POSITIVITY???

Has anyone ever gotten tickets directly ftom the box office in person? I was wondering if the lottery process they use is a good thing or not? Is it worth it to get up and be there early to get in line for a wristband? Is your chance of scoring tickets better than going online?

I would really be stunned if Shelby is not there. They are probably just including her with the NPG. You can always go to Shelby's FB or Twitter page and ask her directly.

Hopefully she'll post about it today or over the weekend. If there's silence on social media then I'm inclined to believe there is some sort of falling out which would be a shame.

When Prince first passed, Sheila said she was asked by the family to be musical director for a tribute. It was reported that half of the siblings wanted one thing and the other half something else. We can only speculate on what that was, but I'm thinking one half wanted a money making big production televised. Sheila had said that she wanted to get all the original people together. I'm assuming that meant Dez, Andre, The Revolution, Mavis, George, The NPG, etc. It seems the estate is in charge of this tribute show now and they had different ideas about who should be there than Sheila. If it was her choice not to be involved because of the new direction in the tribute show with several acts that have minimal connection to Prince, then I stand behind her on that. She also had that date scheduled on her own tour, so people shouldn't just expect her to cancel one show because they feel like she should be at another. I'm going to see her next Saturday in MN. Sheila has always done Prince songs in her set, so I'm sure this time will be no different. I have to say, I've never actually met someone who wanted Shelby J to be at a show. lol I kid!

The line up of performers is wonderful!

Prince would love it because we all know that he loved most of the artists that will be performing at his memorial tribute.

It's all good!

I personally would not do this. Not because I don't think you'd get good tickets at the box office, but because you will find good tickets well after the onsale date. The only time I buy tickets on the onsale date is if it's at a small "standing room only" venue, or a venue with limited seating. Those are guaranted to be true sell-outs depending on the performer. Show at large arenas will always release tickets at later dates. When they say a show is "sold out", it usually means its sold out of current inventory. I've gotten really good tickets to "sold out" shows days before the event. Some people like the assurance of having their ticket ahead of time, but once you've gone to enough concerts you learn the system. Not to insult anyone who chooses to purchase this way, but buying tickets on the onsale date is really a rookie move. If you are willing to take a risk, wait a couple weeks before the show to but your tickets. You'll be amazed at what you find. Try this initially with a show that's in your local town. If you do it enough times, you'll be totally comfortable buying your tickets at the "last minute", and you'll probably have better seats that someone who purchased way in advance.

I don't want to over-emphasize social media but Sheila has been on there plugging her own shows.

I agree.

However, I did expect the star power of the Freddie Mercurt, are you kidding me?!
Where's D'Angelo, Kravitz, Stevie Nicks, Nikka Costa, Bruno Mars, Alicia Keys, even Beyoncé, Larry Graham, all those bands and musicians that covered his songs at their concerts throughout the years, Bilal, The Revolution, André Cymone, Sheila E, The Time, The Family, and so on (we could be here all night)?

Actually I think the last time Shelby did a show with Prince was on 7/4/14. He said in an interview around that time that he would probalby never record with her again. She was at Paisley Park in January as part of Larry Graham's band when he did a show after the P&M shows.

Sheila E. has a show that day. Remember that Chaka Khan couldn't do the BET Tribute because she had a prior engagement. You don't know if these other performers are unavailable for whatever reason. Some people will never be satisfied. Tori Kelly is a singer whose talent Prince appreciated. The same probably goes for Luke James. He may have felt the same way about John Mayer. Between the BET Tribute, Revolution shows at First Avenue and this tribute, I think we've had a wide variety of performers Prince worked with or appreciated. The bottom like is Prince is no longer with us, and I think that's why some people are finding fault with every tribute. Finding fault is tied to your grief.



Apparently, Bilal had a scheduled show elsewhere on the same day as the official memorial tribute, but he will now be performing at the official Prince tribute concert.

If that's the case, that makes Bilal extra special!

Do you know what interview that was? You're right she did perform with Larry Graham at Paisley. But based on one of her tweets it sounds like one night she did perform with P and Kirk J.

x21A.png

It's possible she and P had a falling out of some kind or maybe she just wanted a break and wanted to be back home for a while. Anyway on her FB page she celebrated her birthday (it's on 9/10) saying this was the 10th year she worked with Prince. Also in one of the videos she posted about recording her new album she talks about Prince and some of the feedback he gave her on the songs. If they had any issues it doesn't seem like they were serious.

Just an edit to this post: I was browsing through Shelby's twitter posts from 2014/15 and she tweeted about P's appearance on SNL and in Baltimore and for the various HNR shows 3rdEye Girl did. So I'm going to guess she was taking a break to do her own thing rather than an actual fall out with P.

I will find the interview and post the part where he addressed it. As far as her performing with Prince and Kirk, Prince was DJing and Kirk and Shelby were standing by him.

Thank you for replying. I've never had luck doing it your way to be honest but then again I'm just the occasional concert-goer. So where exactly do you find these last minute tickets? Does the venue or show's organizers suddenly release more tickets later on?

From Ebony magazine summer 2015. This is regarding Hit N Run Phase 2.

Prince:
All the musicians that played on this, they go, “He just records and he puts it in the vault.” All of them have stories. “He’s recording stuff you would not believe. He just threw it away.” I didn’t throw it away. It just has to be on the right project. And all of these fit together now. It reminds me of this time period. I can see all of their faces. And this is probably the last record I’ll do with Shelby J. She’s all in here too. And Andy Allo’s singing background here too.
EBONY:
Shelby’s a powerhouse.

Prince:
So’s Liv Warfield. Watch this though. [listening to a song transition] You know: where else would it go except there? But before, I had that whole song starting another album sequence. And it didn’t work. So now, where it’s placed, it’s right where you wanna be at that point on the album.

This is a good line up. Yes I would like more rock/guitar bands that respected Prince and who would appeal to Prince fans be on the line up. But no big deal, I say get this thing going and to anyone attending have a good time and I pray that you all get the healing and good vibes that you need.

This is a good line up. Yes I would like more rock/guitar bands that respected Prince and who would appeal to Prince fans be on the line up. But no big deal, I say get this thing going and to anyone attending have a good time and I pray that you all get the healing and good vibes that you need.


Life is too short to bitch and moan about meaningless stuff.  All love and respect to Prince!



Thank u for your positivity! It's refreshing.

motherfunka said: Do you know what interview that was? You're right she did perform with Larry Graham at Paisley. But based on one of her tweets it sounds like one night she did perform with P and Kirk J. It's possible she and P had a falling out of some kind or maybe she just wanted a break and wanted to be back home for a while. Anyway on her FB page she celebrated her birthday (it's on 9/10) saying this was the 10th year she worked with Prince. Also in one of the videos she posted about recording her new album she talks about Prince and some of the feedback he gave her on the songs. If they had any issues it doesn't seem like they were serious. Just an edit to this post: I was browsing through Shelby's twitter posts from 2014/15 and she tweeted about P's appearance on SNL and in Baltimore and for the various HNR shows 3rdEye Girl did. So I'm going to guess she was taking a break to do her own thing rather than an actual fall out with P. [Edited 9/17/16 18:22pm]

 


 


I will find the interview and post the part where he addressed it.  As far as her performing with Prince and Kirk, Prince was DJing and Kirk and Shelby were standing by him.  She did yell out a few times, but it wasn't a proper show.  This isn't directed at you, but please not that I'm not insinuating that they had a falling out.



 


From Ebony magazine summer 2015.  This is regarding Hit N Run Phase 2.


 



Prince

All the musicians that played on this, they go, “He just records and he puts it in the vault.” All of them have stories. “He’s recording stuff you would not believe. He just threw it away.” I didn’t throw it away. It just has to be on the right project. And all of these fit together now. It reminds me of this time period. I can see all of their faces. And this is probably the last record I’ll do with Shelby J. She’s all in here too. And Andy Allo’s singing background here too.


EBONY:

Shelby’s a powerhouse.



Prince:

So’s Liv Warfield. Watch this though. [listening to a song transition] You know: where else would it go except there? But before, I had that whole song starting another album sequence. And it didn’t work. So now, where it’s placed, it’s right where you wanna be at that point on the album.


Thanks for sharing. And sorry didn't mean to imply you were suggesting they had a falling out. Anyway I read this several times and still am not sure exactly what he meant. lol

So I asked Shelby on FB if she was going to be at the concert and she replied yes! Woo hoo! biggrin

I'm pretty much convinced whomever is in charge of this event now has put a muzzle on people talking about it for whatever reason...otherwise for sure Shelby would be promoting it.

I believe that I read about how Randy Phillips and Londel McMillan were working on televising the tribute. Especially NOW, there is a venue change to the Xcel Energy Center there is much less capacity, only so many tickets will be available for sale (just under 20,000). I like many of you, have not heard any talk of Rhonda Smith, Renato Neto, Eric Leeds, The Revolution, Rosie Gaines, Tamar Davis and many other phenomenal talents that Prince mentored and championed during his illustrious career --- join the lineup. However, I just feel in my heart that Sheila E and others will provide the element of surprise (as Prince always did) and make themselves available. I did see a television video with one of Prince's siblings and he said that they will not fully disclose the entire lineup, so that there is an element of surprise and suspense for the tribute. Finally, what I would not give besides my children and husband for us to be talking about Prince himself preparing for a fantastic performance in Minnie that is a must see for all of his family. smile I am still grieving his passing. I suspect that it will take me some time. So glad that I found a community where I share my feelings openly. My family is tired of listening to Prince music and I can no longer talk to them about what he meant to me.

Chicago will be in the house! Morris Day and The Time and The New Power Generation are the ones we want to see. My first concert was the 1999 Tour and I want to here, "Cool." And knowing Morris, he just might sing "Pretty Man."

I lived at Paisley during the Days of Wild when Prince was pissed at WB, changed his name and cursed like a mf on a whole lotta songs. The New Power Generation will bring it; look at the albums from which they can choose songs: Diamonds and Pearls, The Love Symbol (Sexy MF), The Gold Experience, Come, Emancipation, Chaos and Disorder, Crystal Ball, 1-800-New-Funk, and The Exodus Has Begun.

This is a TRIBUTE, not a memorial concert.

And on Friday, October 14 we will be touring Paisley Park to see if the tour guides know as much as we the friends that hung out at Paisley almost every weekend in 1994, 1995, and 1996.

This is me, this is us, honoring Prince who is forever interwined in our lives.

I understand. I have stopped talking about Prince to my friends. They just don't understand. I really wish I could be in Minni for the tribute. I pray they are successful in having it televised. Even a pay-per-view would be nice. I, too, believe that there will be surprises, but Sheila E. and Rosie Gaines will not likely be among them. Sheila has another gig that day and Rosie Gaines has been in poor health; although, I did hear that she has been improving. All of the band members and proteges you mentioned would be great. I would also add ALL of the original members of The Time, including Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Jerome Benton. I would even LOVE to see Alexander O'Neal make an appearance!!!

Ticketmaster. You'd purchase them like normal. Just not on "opening" day.

foreverfanpurpleman said:

I personally would not do this. Not because I don't think you'd get good tickets at the box office, but because you will find good tickets well after the onsale date. The only time I buy tickets on the onsale date is if it's at a small "standing room only" venue, or a venue with limited seating. Those are guaranted to be true sell-outs depending on the performer. Show at large arenas will always release tickets at later dates. When they say a show is "sold out", it usually means its sold out of current inventory. I've gotten really good tickets to "sold out" shows days before the event. Some people like the assurance of having their ticket ahead of time, but once you've gone to enough concerts you learn the system. Not to insult anyone who chooses to purchase this way, but buying tickets on the onsale date is really a rookie move. If you are willing to take a risk, wait a couple weeks before the show to but your tickets. You'll be amazed at what you find. Try this initially with a show that's in your local town. If you do it enough times, you'll be totally comfortable buying your tickets at the "last minute", and you'll probably have better seats that someone who purchased way in advance.

Thank you for replying. I've never had luck doing it your way to be honest but then again I'm just the occasional concert-goer. So where exactly do you find these last minute tickets? Does the venue or show's organizers suddenly release more tickets later on?

I know. I'm not sure either. The only thing I can think of is that he thought she would go on to do her own thing, like she is now. This is from the Ebony interview that was pulled. The interviewer was invited to PP to promote HNR Phase One. Prince had gotten in his car and invited the guy in to go for a drive and he played HNR Phase Two, which at that time we didn't know even existed. It was a really good interview and Prince was going in on a few folks. I would post, but we are not allowed on here to post full articles.

Sheila E. has a show that day. Remember that Chaka Khan couldn't do the BET Tribute because she had a prior engagement. You don't know if these other performers are unavailable for whatever reason. Some people will never be satisfied. Tori Kelly is a singer whose talent Prince appreciated. The same probably goes for Luke James. He may have felt the same way about John Mayer. Between the BET Tribute, Revolution shows at First Avenue and this tribute, I think we've had a wide variety of performers Prince worked with or appreciated. The bottom like is Prince is no longer with us, and I think that's why some people are finding fault with every tribute. Finding fault is tied to your grief.

I don't get the complaints about John Mayer. Dude is super talented and obviously had a lot of respect for Prince. Prince was all about real musicians playing real music and that's exactly who John Mayer is. I also don't get the if it's not these set of people then it's not the real deal thing. Prince had a long career, worked with a lot of different people. Sure it would be better if Sheila E and The Rev were going to be there, but someone like Shelby J worked with Prince for 10 years. She was still performing with him in 2016. She sang at the family memorial in August. I'd take her over Jill Jones any day.

Obviously your white and don't think his comments about black women or even using the N word is a big deal. White people just think it is no big deal and don't understand. Prince is an artist that brought all races together and taught us to love each other. John's comments are out there and public knowledge. I really don't think he should be here. Hopefully he gets booed. I myself was planning on going but decided to go the the Sheila E/Time tribute instead and John was the deciding factor as I was attending one of the two. I WILL NOT support anything he does!! Sheila and The Time...CAN'T WAIT!!

Obviously, there are those who are determined to try to derail this Prince tribute. Or, they want to try to pit this official tribute against the Sheila E. and Morris Day tribute in Cleveland on the 15. It is an unfortunate reality. It's not going to work, though. There are too many fams who understand that this is about celebrating Prince's life work. It's not about who's performing...or who's not. It's not about what's going on inside Prince's family. It's not about TROLLS on this website who come up with every reason NOT to support this tribute. Again, it's about Prince.

Yeah I saw a comment on FB that Sheila's show with Morris Day on the 15th is the "real tribute". Huh? I'm sorry but Sheila's concert on the 15th, and the fact that she tweeted to remind people about it right after the official tribute concert details were announced says to me it's just a big FU to those involved in the official event. If these people really wanted to honor the man they'd suck it up and try and make the official event as good as possible. Thankfully people like Shelby, Liv and Morris (Day and Hayes) are going to do just that.

Although her tribute at the BET awards was very, very nice, I am absolutely shocked by many of Sheila's actions since Prince's passing. This is definitely not her finest moment.

Just logged into to Ticketmaster. No $40 seats available and I suspect there are no $110 seats available. LiveNation and other companies have created a business off the backs of people who love music. No $110 seats available. I logged in at 11:01 am ET. Really disgusted. I will probably go, just not happy about paying more for a ticket, when I should not have to. I live in Atlanta. So, I have transportation, lodging and other expenses for my trip. Love PRINCE but not happy about the greed. Only seats available are the platinum seats at a cost of $550 to $1250 per seat. This is from ticketmaster. I will try another ticket purveyor and keep you all posted.

^ Same on not getting anything. I'm pissed! But I was ambivalent about going anyway. I'm still trying but also kinda don't give a fuck. How did people get tickets at all?

I was secretly hoping that the general public didn't know about this, so it would be easy to get tickets this morning, but apparently not! The platinum ticket prices are outrageous, so no thanks. I may still swing by Minneapolis around that time, take a PP tour, and maybe meet some of you folks who will be in town also!

I believe that I read about how Randy Phillips and Londel McMillan were working on televising the tribute. Especially NOW, there is a venue change to the Xcel Energy Center there is much less capacity, only so many tickets will be available for sale (just under 20,000). I like many of you, have not heard any talk of Rhonda Smith, Renato Neto, Eric Leeds, The Revolution, Rosie Gaines, Tamar Davis and many other phenomenal talents that Prince mentored and championed during his illustrious career --- join the lineup. However, I just feel in my heart that Sheila E and others will provide the element of surprise (as Prince always did) and make themselves available. I did see a television video with one of Prince's siblings and he said that they will not fully disclose the entire lineup, so that there is an element of surprise and suspense for the tribute. Finally, what I would not give besides my children and husband for us to be talking about Prince himself preparing for a fantastic performance in Minnie that is a must see for all of his family. smile I am still grieving his passing. I suspect that it will take me some time. So glad that I found a community where I share my feelings openly. My family is tired of listening to Prince music and I can no longer talk to them about what he meant to me.

I understand. I have stopped talking about Prince to my friends. They just don't understand. I really wish I could be in Minni for the tribute. I pray they are successful in having it televised. Even a pay-per-view would be nice. I, too, believe that there will be surprises, but Sheila E. and Rosie Gaines will not likely be among them. Sheila has another gig that day and Rosie Gaines has been in poor health; although, I did hear that she has been improving. All of the band members and proteges you mentioned would be great. I would also add ALL of the original members of The Time, including Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Jerome Benton. I would even LOVE to see Alexander O'Neal make an appearance!!!

I never even thought of Alexander O'Neal...that would be divine. Thanks for affirming my sentiment. My husband and children just laugh at me. It is okay, as Prince stood for TRUTH and LIGHT and AUTHENTICITY. Which I can dig because I have not always fully embraced that...but surrendering to being my true authentic self 100%. Not caring about what others think of me, doing THE WORK that I came here to do. Thanks for finding my initial comment on like the last or almost last page. smile You all ROCK!!

foreverfanpurpleman said: Thank you for replying. I've never had luck doing it your way to be honest but then again I'm just the occasional concert-goer. So where exactly do you find these last minute tickets? Does the venue or show's organizers suddenly release more tickets later on?

That is comforting to know and I hope that it works out that way. I saw a ticket online today for $53,650 for on the floor to the Tribute. H to the N...not when the highest ticket on Ticketmaster was for $1250 in VIP. Prince would not be happy with this greed. Anywho, I will continue to check. I just found it ironic that the only seats available were VIP seats today on TM. I plan to travel from the ATL for the concert. I plan to tour Paisley Park, visit Electric Fetus, Dakota and the food establishment of the people who prepared P's food for the last years. I have a few other places to hit but those are my main venues to visit. Anywho...I gotta get back to work so that I will have more than enough to pay for my Minnie trip. I hope that it will not be too cold. My Dad said that the cold is no joke up there. smile

I just called Ticketmaster again and there's still tickets at reasonable prices. 800-745-3000. Go to the automated express ticket option. Not sure about the view but if you want tickets, I would suggest calling this number. Good luck!

I had two browser windows open, the TM phone app, a browser on my phone, and called the automated service. All of them worked, but the automated phone number gave me the best seat. It seems like if you refresh too many times on the browser and app, it won't show you tickets anymore. The browser on my phone is STILL showing great seats at the $150 level, as is the phone number (1-866-448-7849).

It gave me section 102, row 19. smile

I'm happy for those that are going. And yes, who is Tori Kelly? I hope they add others.

Tori Kelley was part of the BET tribute of Prince (though I personally am not in the know to say how she is connected).

Wonder why Janelle Monae isn't going to be there - that was a surprise to me.

Janelle has a movie coming out in October, shortly after the tribute and another one in December. She's probably busy doing promotion for the movies.

It's been all over the news here since they announced it last week. Was even on the front page of the star trib last week. I was unsure about going to the box office but it worked out ok this time. My DIL was also trying online and she got nothing. So i waa able to tell her she cpuld quit trying. But keep trying different ways. I think the online system can be the most frustrating. It also makes a difference I think whether you want two tickets or six tickets, how much you want to spend per ticket, etc. No way I would spend the prices some folks have mentioned here. The other thing is that folks will be on here trying to get rid of tickets they don't need for one reason or another so don't give up yet smile

I feel like the worlds biggest idiot right now. Had $40 tickets right off the bat and refreshed by mistake. After over an hour of trying and calling with no luck, I'm giving up. I'll probably just wait outside the venue and hope for the best. Definitely can't afford the $150 nosebleeds they have on stubhub.

As on the fence I was about going, this sealed the deal. I could not access the site at all, all morning to get tickets. Then to see the tickets IMMEDIATELY on StubHub is absolutely horse shit.

Fuck them. If I randomly decide to spend the money and time to go, I'll get tickets from the scalpers outside the venue. They are more honest than Ticketmaster.

I can totally relate to this. All of this "stuff" - tributes, memorials, gatherings large and small, here and there - is still little consolation for the loss we are grieving. I'm better, but still a very long way from being ok. Almost w/o even thinking about it I seize any opportunity to celebrate his life hoping it will lift the heaviness I've felt since his passing. The celebrations are great tho bittersweet. Behind the smiling, laughing, dancing, singing is still the reality that he's not here and that's just sad. This place has helped me a lot as well since my family is like many of yours. They can't understand how I could still be so affected by this, and for the most part I try not to bring Prince up anymore and spare myself the eye rolls and general lack of support and understanding. I'm extremely grateful I live in MN near enough to Prince's "world" to take advantage of the local events and to just be close to where he was. It would be killing me to be too far away right now. Yet I also suspect I wouldn't have been as big a fan if I didn't live in MN. My feelings about Prince are due in large part to the fact he lived here. I've always felt a strong familial loyalty towards him, always quick to defend or support him. He was one of us. I do find some comfort knowing he felt safe and loved here. Anyway, hopefully this tribute will bring another degree of healing for his many fans not only here but around the world. Thanks again to Ben and the mods who have created and maintained this place for us to mourn and share freely.

I bet being in Minni...is awesome. I never realized that it was such a creative community. I would have trekked up there a long time ago. All of this has really awakened my being even more. I thought this morning...like how and where have I been to have missed all of these opportunities to experience his music LIVE? Like what have I been doing? Yes, I got married, worked, had a few children and started a few businesses AND have enjoyed life but there are so many things that I want to do. I was within walking distance of the World Trade Center 18 months before it diasppeared. My husband said...itweill be here when we visit next time. Next time never came around. It is gone. From this point forward, I am going to stop putting off the things in my heart to do, to explore (in terms of travel), to meet, to live. I am not melting down...I promise. I have just decided to draw a line in the sand. I am not waiting. I am going to do the things for people, my family and within my heart that I should do. Many times...with the hustle and bustle of life we (I) have forgotten to dream...to explore...to live. How can we (I) fulfill the essence of who (I) we are (am) if we do not step out of our comfort zone? As in Marianne Williamson's poem Return To Love...'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine...'

Prince lived that life...unapologetically. He simply did not care. He masterfully accomplished (I think) THE WORK what his spirit was sent here to complete. Anyway...not trying to hog the mic or stand on the post. I am going to do my part. Do MY WORK. biggrin

I hope that I will be able to meet some of you face to face. This is a beautiful community. As I said, earlier. Wanted to also note that, I am so appreciative of the ones who maintain and moderate this community. It has been a place of warm, love, support and affirmation of my kindred affection (and love) for The Purple One.

How does that happen? How does stub hub get tickets and how do they get away with over charging for them? How do they get their hands on a large number of tickets so quickly then turn around and offer them for sale so quickly? I guess I'm naive because I don't get how this happens. I'm super excited tho as I have tried to get tickets to Prince shows in the past and was never, ever able to do it. Things sold out immediately. Piano and a microphone being the most recent example for me anyway.

Perhaps they will do a second concert and won't give all the Wild ticketholders first dibs. I am convinced that many of the tickets on sale through the vendors are Wild fan resells. They need to let his FANS buy the tickets direct, not from a reseller. Still VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT WER AREN'T GOING. Still can't get over the fact that he is gone. I get very sad.

Again, I don't understand how s*** like this is allowed to happen. I still say hold on and perhaps another org member will not need theirs perhaps or more tickets will be released idk. This part of it seems like it wasn't handled well. But as I said before, I have never had good luck getting into any of Prince's shows in the past either whether they were at another venue or PP.

Prince Tribute concert at Xcel center is a Disgrace.

I’m disappointed and I think Prince would be too. I was expecting a memorial that was talked about, with Prince’s family of close friends and musicians (famous ones unannounced) that he played with over the years and friends to speak about him. Instead, it will be a big time star studded for-profit show with ticket prices as high as $1,250. Furthermore, the event will be big business for ticket scalpers whom Prince loathed and will make a fortune being able to purchase up to 6 tickets, something Prince never would have allowed.

Waiting to purchase tickets at the first second, the concert was sold out in seconds. When I realized the outrageous ticket prices I never would I bought just for the principle of it. The funniest thing is people spent a fortune and yet Prince won’t even be there.

I am still am mourning Prince’s passing. Last October I stood 3-4 feet away from him on a 2 foot stage and he played till 3:00 AM. I wish I could lock those 4 hours and re-live that night forever, watching in disbelief the legend right in front of me. What a priceless night that cost me only $10 (included parking). God I miss him, I'm so sad he isn't around to play in his park with all his toy's doing what he loved most... - Mike Rendahl

Prince Tribute concert at Xcel center is a Disgrace.   


 


I’m disappointed and I think Prince would be too. I was expecting a memorial that was talked about, with Prince’s family of close friends and musicians (famous ones unannounced) that he played with over the years and friends to speak about him. Instead, it will be a big time star studded for-profit show with ticket prices as high as $1,250.  Furthermore, the event will be big business for ticket scalpers whom Prince loathed and will make a fortune being able to purchase up to 6 tickets, something Prince never would have allowed.


 


Waiting to purchase tickets at the first second, the concert was sold out in seconds. When I realized the outrageous ticket prices I never would I bought just for the principle of it. The funniest thing is people spent a fortune and yet Prince won’t even be there.


 


I am still am mourning Prince’s passing.  Last October I stood 3-4 feet away from him on a 2 foot stage and he played till 3:00 AM.  I wish I could lock those 4 hours and re-live that night forever, watching in disbelief the legend right in front of me. What a priceless night that cost me only $10 (included parking). God I miss him, I'm so sad he isn't around to play in his park with all his toy's doing what he loved most...  - Mike Rendahl 


 


 



I'm tired of ALL these "tributes." It's all a money grab. Prince was never about cheesy nostalgia. Bust open the Vault! Create new art, at least an interesting documentary with something to say.

Ticketmaster has changed horribly over the years. You can now only get decent tickets through their app or by calling. I called and I was one minute too early so I couldn't get through they made me hang up. I called back instantly and it said all agents are busy call back later. I tried on my computer they do not handle it the same way they used to. I could not get anything on my computer even though I was just trying for one ticket. Finally got to a person on the phone and didn't get nearly the kind of ticket that I wanted to get but I got a ticket. With the way TicketMaster works, the way it always used to work, was that it would search around and pick out what it thought was the best ticket, if you told it you didn't like it you could say research and then most of the time it would give you a better ticket. It doesn't seem to do that anymore it's random whether it's worse or whether it's better ticket. And that's only on the app on your phone you can't do anything with your computer. Okay enough about getting tickets immediately.

Yes you can get tickets through Ticketmaster sometime after the tickets go on sale and before the concert happens. I don't know if they're doing it for this tribute or not but for a regular concert each member of the band gets a certain number of comp tickets to give away to whoever they want. If they decide after a week or two or whenever they don't want to give them to anybody, they are released back to Ticketmaster for sale to the public and they are usually really good seats. so if you search Ticketmaster and get that lucky time when that band member gives back those tickets you can get some awesome seats at awesome prices. It's very risky but if you can't get one now I would just try every day or however frequent you want to see if something pops up and either do it by the phone or on the cell phone app. Do not use your computer or laptop. I do know someone who got seats next to mine that got them this way that's how I know that they do it. And I had good seats

I was able to get 2 of the $150 tickets. My seats are pretty good, section 120 row 25. I was trying on my desktop, laptop, and phone app but I ended up scoring these over the phone on the automated line. Why would they allow season ticket holders for hockey to have first dibs? If true this was handled poorly and further evidence that we could have filled Viking Stadium even with short notice.

I was in a meeting and my friend grabbed us seats behind the stage which is all she could get. I might just skip it. lol.

Wow I lucked out. I was on right at 10 and needed 3 in the $100 range. I clicked lower level and club as I didn't want floor. Corner seat pulled up half way up lower level. MEH I hate corner seats I always get behind someone 7 feet tall. Not thinking they would sell out this quickly I said I'll see if i can get better. This time I just did club level. Got 3 in section 24 row 1. About where the sound board is. I'll take them.

I do with they would of done like Garth Brooks did and you pay with credit card and the only way you can get into the arena is with that credit card. That would of kept scalpers away.

KirksWife said: I can totally relate to this. All of this "stuff" - tributes, memorials, gatherings large and small, here and there - is still little consolation for the loss we are grieving. I'm better, but still a very long way from being ok. Almost w/o even thinking about it I seize any opportunity to celebrate his life hoping it will lift the heaviness I've felt since his passing. The celebrations are great tho bittersweet. Behind the smiling, laughing, dancing, singing is still the reality that he's not here and that's just sad. This place has helped me a lot as well since my family is like many of yours. They can't understand how I could still be so affected by this, and for the most part I try not to bring Prince up anymore and spare myself the eye rolls and general lack of support and understanding. I'm extremely grateful I live in MN near enough to Prince's "world" to take advantage of the local events and to just be close to where he was. It would be killing me to be too far away right now. Yet I also suspect I wouldn't have been as big a fan if I didn't live in MN. My feelings about Prince are due in large part to the fact he lived here. I've always felt a strong familial loyalty towards him, always quick to defend or support him. He was one of us. I do find some comfort knowing he felt safe and loved here. Anyway, hopefully this tribute will bring another degree of healing for his many fans not only here but around the world. Thanks again to Ben and the mods who have created and maintained this place for us to mourn and share freely.

I bet being in Minni...is awesome. I never realized that it was such a creative community. I would have trekked up there a long time ago. All of this has really awakened my being even more. I thought this morning...like how and where have I been to have missed all of these opportunities to experience his music LIVE? Like what have I been doing? Yes, I got married, worked, had a few children and started a few businesses AND have enjoyed life but there are so many things that I want to do. I was within walking distance of the World Trade Center 18 months before it diasppeared. My husband said...itweill be here when we visit next time. Next time never came around. It is gone. From this point forward, I am going to stop putting off the things in my heart to do, to explore (in terms of travel), to meet, to live. I am not melting down...I promise. I have just decided to draw a line in the sand. I am not waiting. I am going to do the things for people, my family and within my heart that I should do. Many times...with the hustle and bustle of life we (I) have forgotten to dream...to explore...to live. How can we (I) fulfill the essence of who (I) we are (am) if we do not step out of our comfort zone? As in Marianne Williamson's poem Return To Love...'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine...'

Prince lived that life...unapologetically. He simply did not care. He masterfully accomplished (I think) THE WORK what his spirit was sent here to complete. Anyway...not trying to hog the mic or stand on the post. I am going to do my part. Do MY WORK. biggrin

I hope that I will be able to meet some of you face to face. This is a beautiful community. As I said, earlier. Wanted to also note that, I am so appreciative of the ones who maintain and moderate this community. It has been a place of warm, love, support and affirmation of my kindred affection (and love) for The Purple One.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful reflection, yet another reminder of the fleeting nature of this thing called life.

One of the guys involved in the production of this show, Randy Levy, was on local radio morning show KQRS last Friday. You can listen to it here (stars around the 24 minute mark). This guy is in the concert business and has worked for Prince in the past. Knowing someone like this is involved makes me better feel about the whole thing. Having Morris Day lead with NPG as the house band is perfect.

Then I just checked my order and said there was a delay and tickets won't be available to mail until Oct 6th. Well I was planning on leaving the 11th before mail came.

I didn't see the message when checking out, but I saw it on the event info this weekend on Ticketmaster website. I chose mobile phone delivery because it also said that printable tickets wouldn't be available until 48 hours before the concert and I didn't want to worry about having to print them out in the hotel business center or something lol

Mine are e-tickets but they said you can't get them until the same time all the rest are released on the 6th. But their recording said if you didn't have your e-ticket, you could swipe the credit card you paid with. I got a confirmation email but it's not a ticket.

I must of missed it. with the parking pass it wouldn't let me do e-tickets. so i had to do mail or will call. I didn't see them not mailing until the 6th otherwise I would of done will call from the start. They told me the parking place usually has a list of people picking up tickets using will call so just show them my order and I should be good.

We weren't able to get any tickets via Ticketmaster, there 800 number or the Xcel 800 number. At 11:30 AM Central Time, we were informed snubhub.com (a reseller) had tickets. Paid double the price off the regular ticket. That sucks. All the $19.99 tickets behind the stage are $45-$51. We all need to complain to Xcel and Ticketmaster about resellers getting 100s of tickets to events and doubling the face value price. Just checked and snubhub.com still has a lot of tickets. (Sorry, MF up against the wall!)

We opted for behind the stage 200 level (?!!!) so we can sing and dance and do are thing. As long as we are in the building, its all good. Then again, who knows who much closer we may get the night of the gig!

Looking forward to hanging out with everyone! Maybe some after parties, meet ups and going out to eat.

Since tickets are not going to be available until Oct 6th for mailing and 48 hours ahead of time for E tickets how are they selling them on stubhub? I'm sure they are doing e-tickets but how do they have the tickets already or are they just sending you an order?

Most arenas offer first dibs to their season ticket holders. Vikings STH's had first dibs for the two concerts held there. I'm a season ticket holder in Milwaukee and always get first dibs. It's how it works everywhere.

I'm a hockey fan and know a lot of season ticket holders. You have to buy a PSL (personal seat license) in order to get hockey season tickets. That PSL also gives you first dibs on all or most all other arena events. It's an enticement to get more people to purchase season tickets. It's standard practice in most sports and sports venues but that wouldn't have contributed to the seats selling out so quickly. A very small percentage of PSL holders take advantage of this perk for each event. The real problem is the scalpers who have computer programs and so many other work-arounds to snatch up the tickets. I'm sure there are ways to stop this but I don't think TicketMaster really cares as long as they get theirs. Who knows? Maybe they even get a cut from the re-sellers.

If this is true it's a terrible thing.

I can't believe this is allowed to go on.

Unfortunately TM don't see this as being a problem. They don't care who buys the tickets - only that they sell. I don't know what the situation is in the US but in the UK, TM have their own reseller site (getmein) similar to stubhub so they get a cut of the original ticket sale + any resales. There's also been suggestions that some tickets 'find their way' to the reseller sites without ever having been offered to the general public.

It's a broken system for fans but working fine for the companies that only care about the $$$s. It needs someone big in the business to wake up/stand up to them but with everyone in each other's pockets (venues, promoters, sellers) I doubt it'll happen anytime soon.

I am happy for the fans that are going. We wanted to go, but we refuse to buy from a reseller out of Principle (wanted 4 tix). It's a VERY sad irony that these tickets were handled the way they were. Not fitting for a tribute concert for someone who wholeheartedly believed in fairness and hated this sort of thing. The promoters and the family should have thought about Prince and the way he would have handled this. THey should have specified that the credit card to buy the tickets had to be used for entry (for the group). That way, the fans could have gotten the tickets. Hopefully the concert will be a fitting tribute because they need to make up for the way they did the ticketing. Collectively, the resellers stand to make more than the family, and at the expense of the fans. It's disgraceful.

Yes, disgraceful and corrupt. I can't believe this is the best they can do. Like I said I'm only an occasional concert-goer in large part due to the many times ive also gotten skunked on tickets for an event. Its always such a stressful and overwhelming situation dealing with TM and I've never been so desperate as to use a reseller thank goodness.

So it looks like the "family" is stepping all over this tribute concert that, like it or not, is billed as the "official" tribute. I'm sure there are a lot of people who purchased tickets that's aren't up to speed on all the politics behind the scenes between the family, Bremer, Londell etc. They're going to see competing events and think WTF? And by saying "there are plans in the works for YOU", that's essentially saying this tribute concert isn't for the fans. What a clusterf**k. whether the family was totally on board with this tribute concert or not they need to suck it up and support it. not doing so it's just going to turn it into an embarrassment which is the last thing Prince needs.

Paid double the price off the regular ticket. That sucks. All the $19.99 tickets behind the stage are $45-$51. We all need to complain to Xcel and Ticketmaster about resellers getting 100s of tickets to events and doubling the face value price. Just checked and snubhub.com still has a lot of tickets. (Sorry, MF up against the wall!)

We opted for behind the stage 200 level (?!!!) so we can sing and dance and do are thing. As long as we are in the building, its all good. Then again, who knows who much closer we may get the night of the gig!

Looking forward to hanging out with everyone! Maybe some after parties, meet ups and going out to eat.

Since tickets are not going to be available until Oct 6th for mailing and 48 hours ahead of time for E tickets how are they selling them on stubhub? I'm sure they are doing e-tickets but how do they have the tickets already or are they just sending you an order?

An acquaintance who use to purchase tickets for Gold Coast Tickets in Chicago (another broker reseller) said people buy tickets, then sell them to broker houses for face value, plus commission (10-15%), which is why the tickets are always double face value. People know they're aren't going to a gig, but purchase tickets and resell them for extra money. If you sell that ticket on the street by the venue for more than face value, it's considering scalping and you can be arrested and/or fined in certain cities.

So it looks like the "family" is stepping all over this tribute concert that, like it or not, is billed as the "official" tribute. I'm sure there are a lot of people who purchased tickets that's aren't up to speed on all the politics behind the scenes between the family, Bremer, Londell etc. They're going to see competing events and think WTF? And by saying "there are plans in the works for YOU", that's essentially saying this tribute concert isn't for the fans. What a clusterf**k. whether the family was totally on board with this tribute concert or not they need to suck it up and support it. not doing so it's just going to turn it into an embarrassment which is the last thing Prince needs. pa1Me.jpg

yeahthat

I was super excited to see what other events they had in store. But at this point, the 'cattiness' behind this...makes me want to steer clear of whatever they have planned. That is NOT what Prince would have wanted...a continental dvide like this disbelief

Plus...how much longer are they going to wait before sharing these precious details? It's 3 weeks away for crying out loud.

Exactly. What area they waiting for? And it sure sounds like something thrown together at the last minute almost to spite Londell and everyone else involved in the concert.

nod That's precisely what it feels like! And sadly, that makes me not want to be a part of it. Wish they could just put differences ASIDE and do this collectively, for Prince. sigh

Add to that sitting behind the stage or some ish like that.

my impression is, the dance parties at the muse will be a nice complimentary addition to the tribute. 1000 capacity for 3 nights will give the hardcore fans another fun thing to do while in town, something more family-size. maybe the family wants to distance themselves from all these money-making events (that are necessary to try to keep paisley park financially viable) and this is the best time, coinciding with the tribute, to reach out to fans coming from afar. they owe us nothing but are doing this gesture which seems really cool to me cool

All of the fams/fans going to the historical official memorial Prince tribute consisting of an awesome line up of performers are now able to attend additional events that are being organized by Prince's family!

That is awesome news for all of u.

U will also be able to enjoy the Paisley Park tour & eat Prince's favorite delicious recipes cooked by his own personal chef!

In addition, there are also those wonderful Prince film screenings where fams/fans worldwide will gather and enjoy each other's company.

U are bound to have an AMAZING time!

U are all very fortunate.

What are the dynamics of Londell, the family and Bremer? I have not found much info on Londell and Bremer, etc.

I am looking forward to opportunity of THE Prince Experience....just learned that I can even have some vittles prepared by Prince's chef at PP. That is one less stop that I have to make.

I always choose to find the silver lining in the cloud. Hope those who have the desire to go to the Tribute seize the opportunity. Happy Thursday, y'all.

I can't make the trip anyway but as a Prince fan would have no interest in seeing unrelated artists at a tribute concert. Just sayin'...

It was always billed as a Tribute Concert. They could have (and SHOULD have) done a memorial weeks ago. I'd say, this is it.



All of this is basically pointless to a huge percentage of Prince fans.

I agree that it is pointless to the fans. Even though Prince was a friend, as well as, influenced by Stevie Wonder; it makes me sick to my stomach to be left with the memory of Stevie Wonder on stage SINGING PRINCE SONGS! Enough already, I also feel that being left with John Mayer singing songs is abominable too. I am still trying to remember Prince as he was, unique and special, unlike anyone else. Please release some new music from the vault where I can have new memories of PRINCE. Not the sideshow of all these other artists performing his music. I am still trying to get that Jennifer Hudson performance OUT OF MY HEAD. These artists are like scavengers, getting publicity for performing songs by THE GENIUS of Prince, that they never would have been able to do if he was still alive. They should have a worldwide listening party online broadcast live from Paisley Park - "1st time heard New Music from the Vault-Prince"--Now that would be truly a memorial for Prince's fans. Something that people could participate with, No images of Stevie Wonder and Jennifer Hudson left in your head that have to be deleted from your memory. Just saying.

This. And can people stop complaining that everything is about making money? We don't know what the agreement is with Xcel or ticket master. This isn't any diffeeent than other concerts...Metallica was sold out instantly but of course right away tickets showed up on places like stub hub.

Personally, I'm not "outraged". However, if I were to attend, I would be taking long bathroom breaks during Aguilera, Mayer and whomever ever Luke James is. As a Prince fan I have no interest in them or their tribute to Prince. I'd be down for the rest of the show.

have there been any indications how late the tribute might last? I'm guessing 3 hours, if they want to touch on all the phases of his music.

There is an article that was published in The Current today explaining the connection that all of the performers at the official memorial had to Prince. Check it out.

No problem. The shows were on a Thursday and the band King performed at Paisley Park that Saturday. Prince played too. If I remember correctly, Luke James was at PP too, but didn't play.

It's too quite about this concert. Really haven't seen any tweets about it since tickets went on sale. Have the started rehersals? No other acts added? Not sure what to make of this. I guess no news is good news.

That's what I'm thinking. As the date approaches, we'll probably start hearing more. I think it will be historic.

The Prince Fams United group is having a meet up 4:30 at Eagle Street Grille across the street from the arena. We called and they will have the downstairs area setup for us but they can't specifically hold whole area for us. I have a feeling it will be bigger than we expected eek

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.

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?

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?

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.

Beautiful Instagram post from Marcus Anderson:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BLcJIfnh1rY/
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.

I am headed to Mpls very soon for the concert. I have 3 extra tickets that I haven't sold yet, including one down front. All 3 are good seats, and one is incredible. If anyone is thinking about changing their mind about going, or needs a better seat, PLEASE contact me. I am a long-time orger (set up a new username for selling these) and I can't believe no one would want these tickets. I spent a ton of money on these tickets and I don't have the extra money to lose, so hoping some people will change their mind at the last minute. Orgnote me anytime and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

May those of you going have a great time and thanks for representing.

I hope the rumor of it not being filmed is false. But anything that shows up on YouTube I'm sure will be asked to be removed by NPG.

Something tells me that Sheila and The Revolution will regret not being at this Tribute for the rest of their lives. Even if they had to bring in their lawyers to extricate them from any previous engagements, they should be there. Period. With regard to the lead singing, I'm pretty sure that will be Bilal, mostly.

A shout out would've been nice. To completely ignore it is really sad. Is Sheila that pissed off that she wasn't put in charge of it that she's going to pretend it doesn't exist? Zhe wasn't involved with nor mentioned the Rev shows either which makes me wonder they're on bad terms. It's unfortunate but at least Andre and Morris are there representing the early years.

It's hard to know when someone is trolling or not but if the only reason they bought tickets is because of those two performers then they're not really Prince fans. I'd be one thing if the concert had been really short because they weren't there but it lasted 5 freaking hours. No real fan can complain about wanting their money back.

not sure if you will be able to see, but I made my short unclear videos from the concert public. I'm sure you will find plenty online and on Youtube. It was a 4 hour long concert, with purple confetti falling at the end, and the real Prince singing Purple Rain, for the encore.

What an incredible group of musicians. Prince knew how to pick them. You definitely can see Prince's influence and work ethic in these musicians that performed with him.

According to Dr. Funkenbery he found someone who was willing to film it for free. Londell never got in touch with the people. I would not be surprised to see him out of the picture in November.

Bittersweet show. Made me miss Prince's perfection, but drove home the point he is no longer with us w/no hope of coming back. The Revolution material covered by NPG just isn't satisfying. Bobby Z was gracious speaker but the band was sorely missed.

But lots of good moments. The Time rocked the house. Judith Hill performing The Cross / HCYDCM brought tears and smiles. Chaka Khan and Stevie Wonder's 1999 was an unexpected treat that worked fine. Andre was up to the task, just wish his vocals weren't lost in the mix. Liv Warfield's take on Hot Thing was... intimidating. Jessie J did a fine version of NC2U.

Lots of awkward/missed cues and sound problems but that's forgivable - how do you rehearse a five hour show?

Might be just me but things took a questionable turn with all the classless F-bombs... Shelby J performing Erotic City was understandable, but Doug E Fresh pushing the crowd to chant roof is on fire / we don't need water 3x during the show wasn't necessary. Tony M performing Sexy MF couldn't end soon enough. The cursing all seemed spiteful/dancing on a grave.

I understand some of you have great contempt for Mayte and like to put her in a bad light whenever possible, but if you read carefully you'd see that this has absolutely nothing to do with her. This is from the group 'Princess''s Facebook, which is Maya Rudolph's Prince tribute band. Blame Maya and her bandmates for this, not Mayte.

I wondered about that. Not sure why they had Shelby sing Erotic City. Why not Misty Blue or Nothing Compares 2 U? And considering how Prince felt about cursing later in his life that should have been left out of the show. There are enough songs from the 80s and 90s without curse words to choose from.

Eh everybody makes mistakes so really no big deal.

I myself think Mayte has said and done a few questionable things, but generally I like her and think she's a decent person with a good heart, but I respect others' differing opinion and Im not out to change anybody's mind about her. But I guess I'm feeling a bit protective of her today and tired of the seeming desire by some to pin anything 'bad' on her as quickly as possible. At last night's tribute show, during her performance, some loser threw a water bottle at her. DURING HER PERFORMANCE. I think that's low and shitty, I don't care how much someone dislikes her. Have some class and respect for another human being at least.

So, sorry if I came across snippy. I suppose I am snippy today. Last night's show has got me missing Prince more than ever and I'm just so so tired of all the ugliness and hostility swirling around since his passing. sad

There was plenty of NPG 90's era material. But each performer's focus was on Prince's songs, not protogee material. Mr Hayes was musical director.

Sexy MF, Cream, Gett Off, TMBGITW, Diamonds & Pearls... lots of others.

Mayte performed a belly dance w/a sword balanced on her head as intro to "7". I forget the female lead vocalist but the chorus was sung using Prince's recording. Was a huge sing along in the stadium.

Tony M was prominently featured on Gett Off and Sexy MF.

3RDEYEGIRL acts got some time too... Liv Warfield performed unexpected/wow and rocked the house. Shelby took lead on Pretzelbodylogic and Donna was great on guitar. Ida was a real treat, too. Mono Neon's solos were amazing... and bittersweet. Never got to see him in a real lineup.

That was the one downside to watching on Periscope-most of the time the stream was fuzzy and it was hard to make out details. Or, in two cases, the good-hearted Periscopers tried to get the big screen and the stage in at the same time and cut off people's heads on the big screen so that all you could see were the lower bodies. lol

The Minneapolis Star Tribune has written a review of the tribute concert. In their opinion, Chaka Khan was one of the highlights. Also, they believe some acts had too many songs, others not enough, and some singer/song combos didn't work. However, the love everyone has for P came through.

Here is the video that I took of the Purple Rain finale. The sound of Prince's voice made my heart skip a beat! Shelby told me the next day that no one else could sing it, and that Mr. Hayes chose this particular live recording. Please feel free to share it with other fans. Grab some tissues and enjoy!

Here is the video that I took of the Purple Rain finale.  The sound of Prince's voice made my heart skip a beat!  Shelby told me the next day that no one else could sing it, and that Mr. Hayes chose this particular live recording.  This video is unlisted, so only people with the link can view it and it can't be found in a search, but please feel free to share it with other fans.  Grab some tissues and enjoy!

Thank you so much for sharing.
Tissues needed for sure, but what a nice way to end the special tribute.

Thanks for posting the set list.

Unfortunately, it's incomplete.

Several songs are missing such as "7" and a third song sung by Ana.
