The Revolution performed without Prince when he was alive.

I attended one of the First Avenue shows and of the 50+ concerts I saw last year, it was the one I enjoyed the most. So to answer your question, "How are you going to tour without the creator of the group and the writer of all the songs?" They're going to do it just fine.

Glad I'll have a chance to go to this event unlike the others.

Got 4 tickets to Detroit. Me, my mom (who's in her 60s), my brother and his wife are going. For me, I feel like this show will be healing. I was never allowed to go to concerts as a teen during the 80's, so I missed all shows when he was with the Revolution.

I don't care what others are saying about this. The fact is, this band was with him when he was catupulted into superstardom. My brother, who has never been to a Prince conert, nor listened to much of his music, is excited to go because he's a musician himself. He wants to hear any band full of good musicians.

I anticipate the shows will be great.

I think it's wonderful that they are doing this tour.It's another way to keep this music alive.Prince is gone,but that doesn't mean that his former bandmembers shouldn't tour and not do their part to keep this music alive.Remember,they are a part of this music too.This is a part of their legacy,too.

So they were allowed to perform as The Revolutions and he was ok with that? I thought I heard differently.

Prince was okay with it. Here is a thread about a Revolution show at First Avenue back in 2012: http://prince.org/msg/5/376373

all the interviews with Bobby Z were clear that Prince was fine with it, even to the point where they had his guitar on stage just in case he wanted to jump on stage with them

Allegedly what? BrownMark did send the tweet inviting Eric Benet on stage, that's a Fact.

Another FACT is Eric Benet is married to Prince's 2nd wife...that's a kick in the teeth right there to Prince. Mani left Prince for Eric.

Traitors? seriously?

Eric Benet is married to Prince's ex wife, Prince is no longer with us. So it is not a kick in the teeth to Prince. Who did Prince leave Mayte for?

Did Prince leave Mayte for Manuella? or some other woman.

2001 January 30, with Manuela at Air Canada Centre Toronto6a294c6f1c1fea0945d12841906a3e7b.jpg

Here's an excerpt taken from Paper Mag's 1999 cover story interview with Prince:


A lot is virtual in the Artist's world, where fading backdrops of past lives fold neatly into psychic origami boxes. He shows no signs of regret, depression, maladjustment or freakishness from cutting off his past life. In fact, he is rooted in a self-awareness and humor that are absolutely charming. His life seems to be distinctly separated into B.M. and A.M.โ€”before meeting his wife, Mayte, and after Mayte. For instance, when discussing the machinations of record companies, the Artist interrupts the flow to ask if he can interject a personal anecdote about his marriage. (As if I'm going to say no.) The word in the media had been that after a total bliss package of a marriage, they were getting divorced.

What the Artist goes on to say is that wanting a monopoly on his lady had become the marital version of owning someone else's masters. From what he says, and from what others say, theirs has been an intensely romantic relationship, a kind of you-and-me-against-the- world vibe. But both felt it was starting to get weird. "We were drawing energy from strange people around us. Strange words and numbers, bad contracts. We had to step away from that," he explains. For a person who still uses "4" in place of "for" in song lyrics, the relationship between numbers and contractsโ€”both personal and financialโ€” weaves complicated, interrelated secret messages. He traces the origin of the marriage contract to Pontius Pilate organizing the consensus to crucify Jesus, but the short version of the story is that it was screwing up the Artist's world. He describes a relationship that some might categorize as vaguely co-dependentโ€”for a while he couldn't even give an interview without Mayte present. "I could not have sat in a room alone with some- one like you" (meaning young, female and not totally butt), he tells me. Relying on someone so deeply, not to mention feeling possessive, jealous and the other emotions that go with having someone be "yours," was dangerous and, more to his point, deluded."At first you might think that your mate is the God," the Artist reflects, "but you'd better hope that God is speaking through your mate." They are not divorced. Quite the contrary. They are happily joined, having transcended the mental and emotional bondage of marriage. When not floating among the astral planes, the couple like to spend time in Spain, in their lovely new house near Gibraltar, which will soon be featured in another form of virtual reality, Vanity Fair. (The Artist is still a rich guy, like some of the best social radicals.) "We pretend it didn't even happen," he says of the marriage. "Like a lot of things in life I don't like, I pretend it isn't there and it goes away. We decided to go back to the Garden."

Does all this mean they've transcended the physical boundaries of the marriage bond too? The other question, post-"divorce," is monogamy. Considering his reputation as an international lover, one wonders, is the Artist good to the yoni? "They always exaggerate," he says quite demurely, alluding to the baker's dozen of high-profile women he's been teamed with in the press throughout his career. I tell him I saw Warren Beatty on Charlie Rose scoffing at the idea of monogamy in a modern marriage as basically some medieval throw- back. Beatty indicated that it's just not part of the animal. (After getting that close to Halle Berry onscreen, I could see whyโ€”no disrespect, Annette.) The Artist calls upon higher powers for his answer: "Let's say I'm monogamous with God," providing better counsel for Clinton than his lawyers did.

maybe we shouldn't post any more photos w/Manuella in them?

If he gets up on stage 1 time, so be it. If he doesn't so be it.

But we do know the Revolution tour dates in April May June & July

Everybody keeps saying, "Well, why are you doing it? Who's going to sing? Who's going to be Prince? Who's going to be the centerpiece?" All right, let's break this down: No one. No one's going to be Prince. No one will ever be Prince, and none of us in the band are going to try and be him. You can't. It's just not going to happen. - Wendy Melvoin
