It was announced and then kinda disappeared... It kinda determinded how Long I was going to make my MPLS vacation.. I have a VIP for the Sunday show.. So I think I'm just sticking with that.. maybe find some cool live music the night before... I couldn't justify 2 extra nights pay at a hotel to attend a costume contest... I'm Sure it will be fun for others but I'm going for the Meat & Potatoes... this guy is gonna skip the salad bar...

Hope someone is filming this for a documentary. Who knows if or when another re-union will happen again.

Hopefully plenty of those attending shoot videos on their phones and post them on YouTube.

Everyone gear up to party up- the afterparty DJ is gonna blow your mind (and I'm not talkin' bout no small coin)! That's only 1 of the many BIG surprises that are happening. eye know 2 much - Don't ask, don't question - just make SURE if you are a fan of Prince and the Revolution, that you are firmly planted at First Avenue the evening of 2.19.12 . We've all waited long enough 4 this...

Im' thining about flying from SF for this too.

Trying to convince my bf to come too but might be solo. Would be cool if there were an ORG meet and greet for others who are going solo smile

NEW QUESTION: Does anyone know which hotel would be best for this:

W Hotel

The Ivy

Westin Minneaplis

or the Le Meridian?

I'm Starwood Platinum and like to say at SPG props. All look fairly close. Never been to Minny before

St. Paul will be there as well. He wrote on FB that he's got tix. So looks like all fDeluxe/the Family members are present on sunday. Hope they will be asked to join the Revolution on stage.

Hi Gary,

There will be plenty of Minni orgers around. Might I suggest you ask the former mod Carrie for suggestions?

You know, you could put a get together together. I'd gladly come and bring orgers with me. biggrin
