Jimmy Jam And Terry Lewis Announce Super Bowl Prince Tribute concert on Jan 29

http://www.mnsuperbowl.co...ert-Series

MINNEAPOLIS – Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee (MNSBHC) today announced the first 19 of many performers and musical acts who will play free concerts at Super Bowl LIVE presented by Verizon, the MNSBHC’s 10-day festival along Nicollet Mall that will be free and open to the public.

At a press conference in Minneapolis, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis announced that several artists with personal and professional ties to Prince are confirmed to perform and are expected to honor the late Minnesota-born icon. The Revolution, Sheila E. and Morris Day and the Time will perform on Monday, January 29 at the Verizon Up Stage at Ice Mountain to be located on Nicollet Mall at 8th street. This evening, dubbed ‘Prince Night,’ will conclude with a community sing-along of Prince’s legendary song ‘Purple Rain.’

Select ‘Prince Night’ performances will be shown on NFL Network, ESPN2, and NBC Sports Network as part of their telecast of Super Bowl Opening Night fueled by Gatorade from Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul.

I see Omarr’s group New Power Soul is also performing this week.

Who’s the new lead singer?

they probably replaced the other guy due to the hilarity that ensued concerning his appearance, on the last publicity photo...

i dont think it would be an embarrassment to us at all...people from elsewhere should already be aware and prepared for cold/snow...i think that would even add some regional charm to the festivities

Understood. I live here and I don't think I'm going to go to that. She is supposedly doing a show at the Armory on February 4th. I might do that. It is going to be pretty chaotic downtown, since that is the day of the Super Bowl.

What time would the Sheila E/Rev/Morris & The Time concert start on the 29th? I've Googled and read a few different articles about these Super Bowl concerts downtown but I can't seem to see a start time for them. Thanks in advance if anyone can tell me. I'm so excited for this! Just please don't let it be -30 that night! lol

On the Super Bowl Live website the times of the event on the 29th are 4:00 to 9:00. not sure what time the bands will start or how early one should get there to get a good spot but that is the official even time. I work 4 blocks away (at the library) and usually get off work at 5:00 however I have arranged to leave at 3:00 this day in order to get over there early and try to get a good spot.

Thank you, sonicfreak! I live in a nearby suburb. I think I'm going to follow your lead and try to get there around 3ish as well to get a good spot. Thanks again for the info I appreciate it. smile

I wish they would come out with a definitive detailed schedule of the Super Bowl Live concerts. I just noticed that if you go to the site: Super Bowl Live it now says the Revolution are playing "Friday / 27 @ 8:00" (which is wrong right there because Friday is the 26th!) So are they really playing on SATURDAY the 27th or Friday the 26th or Monday the 29th which was previously announced as Prince night??? It is so confusing!!! People want to make plans!!

Site keeps changing. Now it's got a bunch of html code. I think someone is trying to update it but not having a lot of luck. I suspect if we keep checking back it'll all be reavealed soon...

Regarding the original lead singer, What caused a hilarious reaction to his appearance?

justin timberlake should NOT be the performer! Janet Jackson coming off of a world tour should be! Then she should bring out jimmy ham & terry lewis, they could bring out the time and really tie into the minneapolis sound.
the face justin timberlake is even stepping foot into PP is disrespectful af
