I don't understand French (yet!) but I saw a lot of question marks in that article. Including the title.

The article is just a string of sentences about things Prince “could” do, and what it “would” be like if he did. It looks like nothing but wishful thinking.

No this is more than a rumour. The source is on leparisien.fr but you need to pay to see the full article.

This concert must be organized for UNICEF. It is a free concert. It is a charity concert. The newspaper Le Parisien is very well informed.

They are talking about it everywhere in the media today over here in France : radio stations, papers. It is everything but a rumour.

Prince wants a movie to be made out of it as the concert would happen by the Eiffel Tower.

The authorization has been sent to Paris town hall already (VII arrondissement). Hopefull they will authorize the concert.

Prince has had in mind concerts in exceptional places in Paris and around Paris already for the last 3 years.

You didn't add anything concrete - just more wishful thinking. "Hopefull"..."Prince wants"...

Doesn't sound very definite, to me.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Yeah right. Your reaction is the reason why ther is a lot more info about Prince on a site like schkopi.com/forum than over here on the org. I am amazed to see that we are always aware of news orgers know shit about and should be aware of.

Nobody has talked yet about the future european gigs this summer yet. That's why Prince is trying to play by the Eiffel Tower. There will be more news in a few weeks time.

prince has had pretty big ambitious ideas in the past.. it dosen't sound so far from the truth to me..

Below the Eiffel Tower would be so romantic!! A very dear friend of mine proposed to his Parisienne Girlfriend in the Jules Verne restaurant a few years ago. He timed it perfectly as he asked her on the hour as the tower started to sparkle! He got a few of his mates to lay out little lit candles on the ground far below spelling out Marry Me? Ahh, no bad for a Scottish lad, ha ha! Anyway I digress, that concert sounds cool!

Prince plans to give a big concert at the foot of the Eiffel Tower on the evening of July 14 . An initiative that has not yet been validated by the town hall and the prefecture but that would be a real event for the National Day .


Prince has such a love of Paris and France that he wants to even give a free concert at the foot of the Eiffel Tower on the day of National Day, July 14. This is what we found Le Parisien in its edition today.The singer launched the idea, even a formal request has been sent to the town hall of seventh district, where are the Eiffel Tower and the Champs de Mars lawn that can accommodate hundreds of thousands of spectators. Police headquarters says his side have not yet received any application for authorization.


After the Grand Palace two years ago, so this is another amazing place in the capital on which Prince has set his sights for occur before the French public. The Kid of Minneapolis has to rely on sponsors to fund the project. This is to save money in these times of crisis that the Presidency of the Republic had waived organize great free concerts at the foot of the Eiffel Tower on the occasion of July 14. Johnny Hallyday is the latest in 2009.

Last year it was at the initiative of SOS Racism a big show together several artists as Yannick Noah, or Benabar Nolwenn Leroy was organized. Prince announces that he will donate all profits to UNICEF. Intentioned but that one wonders where it will draw potential benefits seen that the concert is supposed to be free.


If the event is confirmed, Paris will then have two American stars live this July 14th. Madonna will indeed be on stage at the Stade de France this evening. A veritable fireworks display of the capital!

It wouldn't conflict with Madonna for simple reasons:

(1) Paris is a big friggin city with lots of friggin people.

(2) If Madonna's I assume will be at an arena or concert hall or whatever, Prince will be at a public space.

(3) it'll be free. People like free stuff.

If this shit did reach theatres, wouldn't this be his first theatrically-released concert movie since SOTT? Or am I missing something here?

What I wonder is if the concert does happen, will any distributor want to distribute the movie? Oh God imagine if he tried to distribute it himself. Opening next week in Detroit, opening in L.A. 3 Christmases later.

If anything, if he had foresight, he should consider the possibility of just releasing this straight to DVD, but for 3-D TVs/playback machines if nobody is willing to distribute it. Who's done that yet for concerts? But I would only consider that as a consequential follow-up to the theatrical release, and not as an alternative to theatrical distribution.

I wasn't trying to be mean, but with 25+ years of seeing Prince live I don't believe it until I'm standing in the audience and he takes the stage. Hope he does do it, though!

From what I can gather, these rumours suggest a release for theatres, it's not mentioned a release for the home video market.....yet.

Everything that's in the theatre eventually gets released in DVD tho

Really? I'm still waiting on U23D after 4 plus years, and countless other releases. Musicology 2004? Well, on bootleg DVD. We know that would've sold a few copies if it were released while the tour was still on. This is Prince we are talking about. Even if the concert does happen, would he release it? With my luck if it is a brilliant show he is capable of...it won't be released. If it is an ok show with Shelby singing covers, it's a lock to be released. I guess it couldn't hurt to hope for the ultimate show.

This does have a Prince feel about it. I mean a 3D concert shot at the foot of the Eiffel Tower to be broadcast for 1 night only (an assumption on my part) through the U.S. theaters . But then again it's not yet confirmed.

Housequake posted about this on facebook....

"Housequake.com

The American singer Prince would perform at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris on 14 July, Le Parisien revealed in its edition of Thursday, May 3. The free concert would be filmed in 3D in order to release a film intended for theaters and whose revenues would be donated to Unicef. The newspaper said a request of this type have been filed with the City of Paris, who has not yet agreed." ..............

I'm honestly surprised U23D still isn't on DVD/BR. Absolutely unacceptable.

But a Unicef benefit concert? Surely that factor would influence a release?

man, i admit MY mind has already gone to set-list speculation. and after Sea of Everything came up on my Ipad, I thought, wow, he should do a segment where he says, "Is Paris still for Lovers?" (repeat, I said is Paris still for lovers...mad screams ensue) and he proceeds to do a couple of his recent stellar ballads like Sea, Better wit Time, and Adore!

He and Madonna will definitely try to "outdo" each other if these shows go off. He'd win hands down if he digs into his catalogue for a few surprises. A FREE outdoor show doesn't hurt either. Madonna tours every year it seems (sit DOWN already)

It wouldn't conflict with Madonna for simple reasons:


 


(1) Paris is a big friggin city with lots of friggin people.


(2) If Madonna's I assume will be at an arena or concert hall or whatever, Prince will be at a public space.


(3) it'll be free. People like free stuff.


 


If this shit did reach theatres, wouldn't this be his first theatrically-released concert movie since SOTT? Or am I missing something here?



 


Yes it would.



No what about the musicology showing at the regal theaters?

Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

If it's true (great idea!), whoever is planning this needs to get moving. The article mentions he organized the concert at the Stade de France (2011) in just one month, so there's still time.

Prince's Paris Concert Proposal Rejected








Soul superstar Prince has been denied permission to perform a free concert under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France next month (Jul12) because the proposed show clashes with the country's Bastille Day celebrations.

The Purple Rain icon planned to bring the heart of the city to a standstill on 14 July (12) by staging a charity gig under the tourist attraction to mark the national holiday, but his request has been rejected by Mayor Bertrand Delanoe as locals traditionally celebrate with a major fireworks display at the venue.

A representative for the Mayor says, "There was a request from the producer of Prince in France to organise a concert on July 14. But our priority is the July 14 fireworks at the Eiffel Tower, which is not compatible with this project.

"We are ready to study another concert date, discussions are under way."

Prince and his team are now hoping to hold the gig, to raise awareness about the fight against Hiv and Aids, in September (12).

Too bad would have beem a good idea...

princes like a "ACT OF GOD" N another realm.Of all people who might b aliens,angels.if found out prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not b surprised,"What's happening now is the position eye always wanted 2b N, eye was just tryin 2 get here" Says prince

Nice idea yes, but on the other hand maybe not a good idea to ask the French to immerse themself in English culture on their national day of Bastille. cool
