Well,this is a rather more complex undertaking. Much more difficult to organize.

This really should not have been that complex or difficult-you know who you want to perform and you ask??? Both Billboard and BET have done it. Date has been out since August-there are people still waiting on the call?

I plan to be there and if it is just a Mint Condition tribute concert, I will take that-Real Music Played by Real Musicians.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

Exactly!! And, supposedly, Mint Condition and Morris Day and The Time have been confirmed for a while now. Why not just go on and sign the contract for the U. S. Bank Stadium, announce the confirmed acts, with the caveat that additional acts will be added, and just put the dang tickets on sale?????

FlyOnTheWall said: I know I sound like a broken record on this but Prince isn't Michael Jackson and most celebrities don't have memorial services for fans. Does anyone really think Prince would have wanted a memorial service on TV? Heck no. This concert was supposed to be a place for the fans to grieve and celebrate his life. I honestly don't think it has to happen now. Postpone it until next year when something proper that isn't rushed can be done right. Other than die hard fans my guess is most people have forgotten about it so I think they could easily postpone it. Honestly I wish they wouldn't have announced it when they clearly didn't have stuff in place (like an agreement with US Bank Stadium). That was a mistake.

Sorry but thats easy for you to say. There are many that have booked trips because they told us to book because the event was happening.

yeahthat

Definitely not something anyone should tweet if it wasn't actually happening. He could have tweeted like 'working on a big event in October, stayed tuned fams!' or something along those lines. Not to ACTUALLY book travel now!

Did you miss Sheila E's post?? Don't you remember the post that read something like neither my brothers remains nor I will be at any of these memeorials????? Drama has been here for a while, we just overlooked.

I don't know what that post is about but I don't think it's necessary to have any remains at a Tribute/Benefit Concert disbelief Let Him rest in peace ( yes this applies with the urn).

I certainly won't even though Londell & co. are still claiming Purple Rain will fall out of the sky. Still no real information on the concert. Plus, how are you gonna fill a 50,000 capacity stadium in three or four weeks? Maybe, MAYBE, Prince could have come close to it... But if Londell builds it without Prince, "they" will not come...

Well I've never made the trip and was gonna do this with or without The tribute

nod Me too Jay! highfive It's still going to be an awesome trip, with the PP tours, the Purple Rain locations type tour, First Ave, the movie fam gatherings, etc

Well that doesn't make sense as Shelia was at the family memorial at PP back in August.

Of course, but no public announcements should have been made until all the details were ironed out and plans finalized. It didn't have to be handled this way.

Not sure they could have put tickets on sale with just Mint Condition and Morris Day as confirmed acts. But I do agree they shouldn't have announced anything until more things were in place.

I'm confused. Did Sheila say that about "...my brother's remains nor I will be at any of these memorials" or was that something Tyka said and it's gotten all mixed up in the fray of comments and miscommunication? Because I don't remember Sheila saying or posting anything like that (not saying she didn't, just that I don't remember seeing anything like that) but I do recall Tyka posting something along the lines of the only memorial that she'd be at and the only one that would be the 'true' memorial is/would be the one the family organized. So who really said that bolded comment? Sheila, Tyka, or...?? confuse

A show of this magnatide requires grow-up respected industry figures. Sorry, but booking the required level of talent, negotiating the many moving parts, and navigating the politics is the job of an old pro.

It's no wonder artists are not falling over themselves to be part of this show (though many would totally agree with the sentiment), when there is no respected figures involved. There hasn't been anyone like it in P's camp for a very long time.

yeahthat If P had, say, a current manager with lots of deep industry connections, that person could really have helped get this done. I think P's lack of an experienced and connected music-industry team around him is hurting this particular endeavor.

Since we have so many orgers who want facts. Here are the facts-Tyka announces an official tribute concert on FB-on July 28, saying tickets will go on sale next month. Press releases are sent to all major news outlets

-On, 7/29 Londell McMillan issues the tweet telling the Purple Army to start making plans for the concert on 10/13

-On 7/29 McMillan replies to a tweet that details will be "released soon"

-On 8/4 McMillan tweets "Big Day today. Can't wait until October 13. #PrinceTribute in Minneapolis #USBankStadium

-On 8/14 McMillan responds to a tweet about concert with #staytuned

-On 8/21 MC Millan tweets pic of US Bank stadium saying he's scouting it for 10/13 #PrinceTribute

-On 8/24 It is announced that Paisley Park will become a museum to open in October.

-On 8/24 McMillan tweets about Paisley and says "Next up we're coming to Minneapolis for a major #PurplePlan

-On 8/27 McMillan tweets he just spoke to Stevie Wonder and "its NOT a game"

-8/31 McMillan tweets don't believe rumors in response to reports that Sheila E. and The Time are appearing. Shelia E. issues statement that she isn't attending.

-8/31 Morris Day tweets "its official THE PRINCE TRIBUTE"

-On 9/2 McMillan tweets he is at The Revolution concert "on my job"

-On 9/5 Morris Day tweets "r U ready? October 13 Minneapolis" and "The Rain is Coming"

-On 9/8 Brown Mark responds to a tweet about The Revolution performing at Tribute Concert with "I don't think it'll even be possible for them to put it together."

-On 9/9 Concert with Sheila E and Morris Day is announced for 10/15

-On 9/10 Brown Mark goes on Instagram, FB and Twitter announcing to follow him for real updates on the October #princetribute show, states no one in The Revolution has been contacted about performing by anyone.

- On 9/10 Another concert with Sheila E and Morris is announced for 10/14

-On 9/10 Dr. Funkenberry tweets several messages in response to fans' concerns that no acts have been booked or ticket sales announced.

-On 9/10 Mc Millan tweets "Keep the Faith! #PurpleArmy

-On 9/11 McMillan tweets asking Brown Mark to contact him and Keep The Faith!

-On 9/11 Morris Day put a FB post and tweets about the 10/13 Prince Tribute concert-deletes it hours later.

-9/11 McMillan tweets "Big Week Ahead" #KeepTheFaith"

This is a clusterf*ck (do I avoid the swear jar with the asterisk P?) Have no idea what is going on but I have never seen or heard of anything like it. Twitter's Londell crowd appear to be turning on Brown Mark. I'm grateful he was willing to step up and say something, particularly if no one has contacted The Revolution about appearing in a show on 10/13 (I assumed that was why L was at First Ave. tweeting he was working).

Stinks for those with tickets but I'm going with this is going to be a bust or a MUCH smaller event than initally billed.

Nah, I read that. It appears The Current is just interpreting McMillan's tweet to Keep The Faith and Big Week as an announement. They don't know a darn thing more than the rest of us. There only source was Londell's Twitter account.

It's crazy that a tribute like this seems as if it's being planned on Twitter. Londell made written representations about the concert and I can see that people here made travel plans based upon those representations. Possibly to their financial detriment if there is no concert. He's a lawyer. He should know better. Also contact Mark Brown in private not on Twitter. Very unprofessional.

At this point, I think even Prince, were he here, would have to contribute to his own swear jar. I'm really starting to wonder about Londell. Dude is a mover and a shaker, right?? So, why hasn't the venue been secured? Shouldn't that have been the starting point BEFORE a date was announced? I mean, have any of the desired acts (at least they are desired by the fams) been contacted? Is this all a game of smoke-and-mirrors???

How do we know Londell is behind all of this. Sure he's kind of been the public face if you will but we don't know that it's his job to pull this tribute together. I would imagine his hands are full with getting PP ready for public tours. Again I think this is turning out to be a shit show but not sure it's all Londell's fault. Not for me to pass judgement when I have no idea what's all going on behind the scenes. More communication and clarity would be appreciated. Is Londell the official spokesperson for the estate? Who knows....

But if you make a written representation that people rely upon to their detriment, you can be legally responsible. That's why I said he's a lawyer and should know better and have been more careful what he wrote on Twitter. As in nothing until it was all finalized with written contracts.
