Agree (with the "not havin it" face).

-

it's not just about "keeping the faith." it's about "booking airline tickets" and "reserving hotels." This isn't the way you organize and promote a big stadium show. I've have a non-good feeling about this whole event.

Now I'm confused. I was under the impression that tickets for the October 13th event were already SOLD OUT. Is this not the case?

They are not even on sale yet. Apparently, there's not even a signed contract yet. All the tours to Paisley Park sold out within hours. Perhaps that's what's causing the confusion.

There are plenty of tickets available for tours at Paisley Park that week. They are NOT sold out.

Tributes suck. The family should produce, not create, an amazing documentary.

But...is that the only way to look at it? Morris & Sheila aren't billing it as "THE" tribute or "better than", etc. They're just doing their own thing, as super close associates and friends of Prince. Period. It's not better than or less than, or anything. It just is its own thing, IMO.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I wouldn't mind a tribute with The Time and Shelia E. I think it would be nice.

You have to understand, people are going to give their tributes based on the kind of relationship they had with Prince AND who they had relationships with.

So maybe Shelia and The Time doesn't have those kinds of relationships with all of Prince's bandmembers to have a full blown out tribute that so many hardcore orgers want.

I say, let them be. I bet it would be a good show!

I agree, but a "full blown out tribute" has been promised. That has built expectations...and it is rapidly fueling frustrations.

I am going to see Stevie Nicks at the end of November. I bought my ticket this week. That is how a concert is normally handled. At least a couple of months out the tickets go on sale. I am concerned because Prince deserves the finest tribute possible, and there have already been two: BET and the Revolution shows. Plus, fams deserve clarity on what is happening. Prince means too much for anything less than the class act he was.

When nothing "official" happened in the first month I suspected it probably wouldn't happen at all. First it was August, then October which seems doubtful at this point.

.

I am perfectly fine with the BET Tribute - that was as close to wonderful as I would have asked for and the fact that it was televised meant access was worldwide.

-

I would love to see The Revolution do something at the Grammys.

-

But outside of that, there were lots of dance parties public and private, PR screenings - public and private, radio shows, etc. paying tribute in April and then again in June.

-

I think the family/estate dropped the ball and/or missed the boat on this completely and to be honest that kind of pisses me off the way the fams are being lead on. I'm sure the intentions were good but this thing is a mess.

Wouldn't it be both shocking and a dream come true if they would announce within the next few days that the memorial tribute on Oct. 13th will also be simulcast worldwide via pay per view & at selected movie theaters and would feature the following lineup?

-The expanded version of The Revolution including Eric Leeds, Susannah, etc.

-Various New Power Generation band members

-Third Eye Girl

-The Lovesexy band (Hopefully, with Sheila E...)

-Prince's family sharing stories about Prince

-Screenings of Prince performances from all eras throughout the tribute

-The original members of The Time

-Jill Jones

-Apollonia 6

-Martika

-Dance set by Mayte, Cat, Misty, The Twinz, Diamond & Pearl

-Ben, the founder of Prince.org

-Mavis Staples

-Sheena Easton

-Mint Condition

-Taja Sevelle

-Andre Cymone

-Dale

-The Joffrey Ballet performing selections from "Billboards"

-FDeluxe

If this were to happen, it would be a beautiful memorial tribute for our beloved Prince...


Ingrid Chavez should be added to this dream list of performers. Ingrid is also one of the best.

Also, Ingrid like many other Prince associated artists has been consistent in coming across as humble and not self-promoting. It's also obvious that Prince loved her artistic talent. Artists like her deserve our respect and appreciation.

I've been hearing rumors that the official family tribute show will never happen. One person even told me that a member of The Revolution told them that the show was just a "rumor." Also, several people have said that they called the U. S. Bank Stadium asking for booking details, only to be told that there is no concert scheduled for October 13. That there is no signed contract for a Prince Tribute Concert. At first, I dismissed this notion, but now, tickets are on sale for a tribute concert in Cleveland on October 15, featuring Sheila E. and Morris Day and The Time. I'm really starting to wonder. WHAT IS GOING ON???!!??? Folks from around the world have already made travel arrangements to MLPS for the weekend of the planned tribute. Whatever the case, it's time for the estate to speak on this.

OH NO!!! WHAT'S GOING ON???? eek cry

This is all very bizarre!

ETA- just had a look at his tweets & replies, someone asked if The Rev would be playing & he said he doesn't think it will be possible for them to put it together (guessing the them is the estate from how it looks). Drama.

Enjoy your time at The Park. I know it will be bittersweet. BTW: I believe that the movie screening is sold out. Let's hope there will be a Tribute for you to attend. I wish I could be there. A trip to Minni and Chanhassen is definitely on my bucket list.

biggrin The movie screenings are not sold out - but UTCM/SOTT is almost 60% sold out - not too shabby! PR/GB hasn't yet been as actively promoted but that will be fixed tomorrow and that should increase those ticket sales too smile

This concert was supposed to be the memorial for fans. Sad if they can't pull it off but I'd rather they cancel it than rush something that turned out to be a disaster.

Do most celebrities have memorials for fans? Seems to me most celebrities that pass away do not have fan memorials. I know Prince wasn't most celebrities but still I'm not sure we should have expected a memorial just for us.

This is what he posted on FB:

BrownMark What I can tell you so far is, The Revolution is not confirmed. We have yet to speak with nor negotiate with the promoters. We are willing and eagerly waiting for the negotiations to begin for this Tribute. I will keep you posted Purple Fam..

So it sounds like The Revolution would play if there was something more concrete. I get the feeling the people running the estate have taken on too much too soon and something has to give which will probably be this concert.

Several months ago, I read a gossip item that there were two factions in the family (the heirs), and they were fighting each other over tribute concert TV rights - they wanted the most money possible and there was a disagreement on how the show would be handled. This was confirmed to me by someone who lived in the area at that time. It doesn't pay to bring in the B or C team to sort out an A level, mishandled empire. I have no problem with Bremer, but the big dogs needed to be brought in to handle the estate/tribute/merchandising, etc. Entertainment lawyers, accountants, etc., who have represented the biggest stars.

But Londell was at all the Rev shows and tweeted about it. I seriously think they are in over their heads. PP has to open on the 9th. At this point the concert doesn't have to happen. But what's so weird about it all is you get the feeling they rushed to open PP to accommodate people attending the concert but now it seems like the concert might not even happen. Shit show all around (sorry for my cursing, P).
