If I can get the tickets, I will certainly go. How much do you guys think the price will be? Or is it the standard festival price?

Like i've said many times before, money first, music second, third, fourth, etc. sad
I'll contribute and give my money for decent music, not to support his lifestyle.
The line must be drawn!!! Especially in this economy.

i totally agree, that's why i didn't buy Lotus Flower.. he's equated making hits on the charts to being # 1 at the bank.. its always about the money! cry

4 WHAT IS SAID 2 B THE HIGHEST FEE PAID 2 ANY PER4MER IN THE FESTIVAL’S HISTORY.


What exactly is the purpose behind this statement? That Prince is in high demand? That Prince is still relevant? That Prince has lost touch with what really matters to the folks that will be reading this "rumor"?
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

I wonder how festival organizers will seek to recoup that cost? Higher ticket prices! Still, at least fans can pay the higher cost more quickly at lotusflow3r.com. He's got you cornered so badly.

Strange but true!!!
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

Come on. This press release (and for all intents and purposes - it is a press release) says only two things: 1) He's playing Montreux. 2) It will be a record payday.

He could have related to fans by saying something titillating about the music, the lineup, the fun to be had... no, it's about the cash.


lol When are Prince apologists going to realize that Prince doesn't care about them?

It is just nonsense.
If normally each performer gets about the same wage per unit of time, of course P will get triple the normal amount and thus perhaps be the best paid performer.

Well said.

How fucking arrogant to boast about how much you're getting paid for your "art" when the rest of the world is in a recession.

Prince really can be a dick sometimes. There's a valid reason why Steve Fargnoli never let Prince talk !
