What About Prince Doing A TV Special?

I think we should petition Prince, The Time, Vanity 6 and plus all other artist that have cover Prince music to do a three hours Reunion Television Show.

Not a bad idea, but I don't think P would warm up to it. I'd rather see a "behind the movie" docu on "Purple Rain". Or a recent 2015 docu (like the BBC 1991 docu).

He could drop that 3121 movie anytime. I'd be cool with that.

If you have a couple of millions to spare, go ahead. Otherwise don't bother.

I like Prince´s TV shows, The Beautiful Experience: A Night in Erotic City is still one of my favorite Prince things to watch but I definitely would not want him to do some reunion, nostalgia act TV show with The Time, Vanity and the others. That would be so boring and cheesy.

I like his TV shows when they are in the here and now, with lots of new music and maybe one or two classic songs sprinkled in between new songs.

I've said multiple times in the past he should have his own TV show. Forget the revolution reunion though.

I'd like to see something following the formula of Jools Holland. Musical guests each week; legends, youtubers, established artists, unknown artists. Prince and/or a competent co-host (Chris Rock?) conducting short interviews, impromptu singalongs, and allowing guests to shine on their own.

Prince sitting at a piano with Stevie Wonder or [insert name here], talking about each others music.

A variety show with Cher. Skits and musical numbers. It would be groundbreaking.

He needs to do a 1 hour stand up comedy special.

I'd love for him to do some kind of Purple Rain anniversary TV special....with a special performance by a reunited Prince and The Revolution! Plus,some performances by The Time,Apollonia 6 and Sheila E....that movie,that album and that era deserves to be celebrated!!

I guess I'd better stop dreaming,huh? biggrin

Hell nah, he needs a sitcom. They'd have to get someone young to play him in the 70s/80s/90s, but imagine that...

*1984*
VANITY: you won't be able to sleep at night without ME there

PRINCE: Don't worry about me sleeping.. I got your shitty album to listen to for those occasions

*audience 'oooooh's'

*stolen from 'Friends'.
