I have a use for the Egg Building

Why not make it the permanent home of the Symbol Stage?
Finish the building out and make it an hands-on interactive tour with history, videos, equipment and a chance to be Prince and the Band. For a fee wear an NPG/ Prince outfit (various sizes of course). And live the dream. Come up the trap door or down, replica instruments, and to a soundtrack Recreate the Super Bowl or Musicology, etc..
That would make money don’t you think?

The Egg is too small for that.
It would make a fine cafe
or merchandise store.

I always thought it would be a great way to display outfits and guitars in a chronolgical order. SMall video displays could show clips from performances. Escalators could take guest to multiple layers. PP could change outfits randomly. Kinda like the Beautiful Experience on a smaller more intimate scale.

I'd have to agree that the Egg would not fit the Symbol stage. I think you might be off on your perspective of how big or small either one of those things are in real life. I think it should be part of a VIP package tour with extra and special memorabilia (like a couple of his cars maybe), more outfits, exclusive videos playing, or other things. It could easily have a second level built into it but open in the middle to look up or down.

As far as the Symbol stage, it would fit in the soundstage area of course, but nowhere else.

I would like to see the Endorphinmachine set up sometime.

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

I saw it setting outside Paisley on huge racks in 95 falling apart

Merchandise and snack bar would be a bad idea. Great if you just want a tee shirt and not a tour.

This is probably the best idea we have come up with so far. Like if you only had a little while in town, and couldn't do the whole tour. Also would be a nice low-cost kind of experience for kids or teens so we can introduce them to our purple genius!

Good morning children...take a look out your window.

Maybe everyone who tours has to take an egg. It is placed in the Egg, and thence over time, once it is full, a huge pancake is made. Not for breakfast, but for elevenses.

Do they need a snack bar? And aren't they always set up outside for merch? That is what they need in there. A food license, etc., is a hassle to deal with, but the merch part sounds right. They could pave a couple of sidewalks to and from, leading back to the parking lot. "Please exit through the gift shop."

I love this idea--make it a permanent Prince mini-museum. Great addition to PP. Or even a separate venue for young bands. Who knows? Lots of possibilities...

I realize this is all make believe.... but

.

Has anyone checked with the building department and checked local zoning regulations? I have a feeling that turning that building into an public assembly area with today’s IBC building standards, they are probably better off bulldozing it and starting fresh.

.

Just a thought, DD

I'd hate that. I'd like to see it finished and turned into a workable building...

Knock it down and build something useful in that area. An exclusive b and b, a restaurant, a souvenir shop, etc.....There's many things that could be done but not sure the building currently there is worth keeping.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod
