Track 2 Celebration Meet ups

Hello, Who is on the org and going to Celebration Track 2? Looking to meet up. After reading all the stuff the Track 1 people are doing, I am thinking of switching my hotel to a downtown hotel as it seems like everything at PP is over by 10pm. Is this what you are hearing as well?

Thx. Lisa

I don't have ticket for the celebration, but things generally wrap up early at PP. Lots of stuff going on downtown after.
I live about a half hour from PP and if I can help anyone out with rides or whatever it doesn't hurt to ask me smile

Hey! I have Track 2 tickets as well. I also have front row dinner seat tickets to see Eric Leeds at the Dakota Jazz Club on the 19th. I bought an extra seat just incase I happened to find someone from the Celebration to go with me. I have my hotel room downtown so I can check out the dining places and First Ave.

I am hoping the Celebration folks come out with some sort of schedule of events so I can see what we are working with.

I am staying at a Celebration hotel in Bloomington and renting a car to get around. The hotel is one that has a shuttle to the Celebration but I plan to see more of the region.

By the way, did everyone get an email Saturday from Paisley Park asking for a photo, what hotel you are staying at, etc, so they can create a special credential for you and leave you a welcome packet?

I would be interested in taking part in some group events!

I want to go to go to that too! Are you doing just the general ticket ? I'm thinking since we are in the late group we wouldn't be able to get there by 10:30pm.

I saw that Jesse Johnson is at Bunker's 20-22. Was considering going there on Friday since we have the early session at PP. What do you think? http://bunkersmusic.com/

Thank U Motherfunka! Got them last night. Went VIP, it was worth it at the October Tribute Celebration Dance until Dawn at the Muse . Nice to say hello to Omar, his lovely wife, Bobby Z, Andre....saw Mayte but...well I saw her..have my own issues from 15 yrs ago there a bit but all good lol. Plus 2 free drinks is a bonus as they're not cheap and don't wanna freeze waiting in-line if its cold. Sometimes it...well U no the rest.

G-Sharp, is amazing...they do a cover of "Condition of the Heart" real flute and all that I still cannot get out of my head 6 month later. I would fly back just to see them...no kidding.

Can't wait to get on Track.....2 with U all!!!

Great. Its one of those once in a while opps and worth the few extra $$$. To me Prince was always a VIP wherever he went and by far I am no comparison to him (especially in the $$ dept. LOL) BUT I always like to represent in the same fashion as a fan whenever it came or comes to him.

Hope to meet up with you in VIP Lotusflower0000

Just saw Shelby with Liv and Jill at BB King's back in early Janauary (amazing show), plus I took the same PP Tour with her back in October. Whatched the same screen next to her that replays the 2007 SB performance. That was very emotional & surreal as it was both of our first times seeing that exhibit in Paisley.

If it wasn't for this tread I might have missed this. Wanted to visit the Dakota given from what I recall was the last nightclub dance/jazz place he visited before he passed. I believe he had a light dinner there inat his "favorite table" either Mon or Tues 4/19 or 4/18/16. Plus I never made those legendary Dakota P shows a few years back.

Pub crawl? Where is the info on this?

And you're going to see Shelby? I'm afraid I won't make it as it starts at 10, and PP ends at 10.

I contacted First Ave and they said they would probably be doing something on the 21st. I hope they do!

Try this link for the Pub Crawl: https://www.facebook.com/...603490880/

RE Shelby-yeah, we are going to leave PP right at 10. Thinking we'll get there around 10:45-11. Contacted Dakota and they said she was going to play all night. I don't think they close until 2 so we should catch most of the show. FYI...if you are thinking about this, you may want to secure tickets. They were going fast.
