Prince to Roskilde Festival
One of the strongest acts in 40 years of festival history has just been confirmed.
Last Thursday’s approx. 60 announced artists are still fresh. Five days later, Roskilde Festival already has an addition – even one with true star status – ready for its audience. A surprise of the kind that separates Roskilde Festival from most other music events in Europe.

PRINCE (US) comes on one of his rare European visits at Roskilde Festival.

"I’ve had to pinch myself many times since last night when everything fell into place. Getting Prince to Roskilde Festival has been on our wish list for years. He’s not a frequent guest at festivals, so it's a great honour for us. It's wonderful finally to be able to tell this great news to our audience," says music director Rikke Øxner.

The only festival concert
The rock demigod’s first concert at Roskilde Festival will be one out of only three this summer. The other two take place in Werchter in Belgium and Arras in France, and Roskilde Festival is the only real festival that Prince visits. The American legend has not played in Denmark since 2002.

Today, Roskilde Festival adds a gilt-edged name to its festival poster, whom probably only few dared dream of. But Roskilde Festival's ambition is to make nearly abandoned dreams come true. And now all festival-goers can look forward to a magical evening in the company of a rock-historic eminence in gold and purple.


Tickets to Roskilde Festival 2010 are available through the festival's online ticket sale.

See you at Roskilde Festival 1 - 4 July 2010. Warm-up from 27 June at 8:00.

Why don't you take your broke ass never will have 1/5 of P's money somewhere.

What makes you think P would even be able to tour if he was so broke he did not even have the 2 mill. How would he travel to Eurpoe or come up with the money for his band. Use your damm head and think.

I honestly think some of you are smoking something when you sit down to type.

Gosh , you are so uptight. The first thing you do is flame somebody when your told that your posts make no sense. Makes me wonder whether you are constantly in need of a drink, a sniff or a smoke. Or would you rather have a snip?

FYI: Prince hasn't paid up yet and faces legal action from numerous creditors demanding payment of numerous millions of dollars. So use your head yourself and inform yourself before you open your rude and dirty mouth again.

By the way, Prince and his band would be PAID to come here.

You know with an advance of 1 million dollars, like Desmond paid him when he agreed to play in Dublin.

About Werchter Boutique 2010

Find out about Werchter Boutique 2010 concert details, venue information and history on Live Nation

He sings like an angel. He dances like a devil and he can turn a green field into a trendy dance club. The best live performer of modern time is coming to Werchter - again. Prince is only doing three concerts this summer. On the 4th of July, he is playing at Roskilde (DK), on the 9th in Arras (FR). On the 10th of July he is closing off his short stay in Europe with a concert at Werchter's Festival Park!

The monarchy is in trouble. But not Prince Roger Nelson (°1958). His kingdom is huge and thanks to the right brilliant moves he manages to keep it that way. Prince is a rare treat. It has been almost ten years now since he last performed in Belgium. And the few shows he does do, are very striking. He has mainly been doing surprise gigs lately. At the grand Grand Palais in Paris but also at his very home or at his favourite supermarket in Minneapolis. Of course there was that huge exception in 2007: the impressive series of performances at the O2 Arena in London: evening upon evening playing in front of 20,000 people, and this for three weeks in a row. The grand total: 440,000 or in other words, the entire population of Antwerp. But even that major operation was an example of scarcity. Things had started off as a seven nighter that sold out in barely 20 minutes. The mega project showcased the new Prince: the highly gifted, relaxed band leader who likes to fool around with his band and the audience. During the 80s, His Royal Badness spent a big chunk of his time in recording studios making visionary dance music. Prince merged funk, jazz, pop and soul into rocking grooves. During the 90s, the biggest musical genius of his generation spent most of the time being pissed off with his record label. Nowadays, Prince wants to entertain (himself), giving carte blanche to the brilliant entertainer within. He talks like a pimp. He sings like an angel. He dances like a devil. After three decades he can really count on everything it takes to set a big crowd on fire. Prince outdoes each member of his solid backing band (says Pharell Williams) and he needs more than five hands to count his most famous songs.

Do a test of your own. Everyone who has ever seen Prince live will rank that show among the best 3 shows they have ever seen. As a consequence, the crowd will be amazing.

Just a couple of things one should know about Prince:

The big hits: Controversy/1999/Little Red Corvette/Nothing Compares 2 U/When Doves Cry/Purple Rain/I Would Die 4 You/Let’s Go Crazy/Raspberry Beret/Kiss/Mountains/Girls & Boys/Sign O’ The Times/U Got The Look/If I Was Your Girlfriend/Alphabet St./I Wish U Heaven/Get Off/Cream/Sexy M.F./The Most Beautiful Girl In The World
Last time he played in Belgium: 18th October 2002 at Antwerp's Sportpaleis. (One Nite Alone ... With Prince Tour)
Last show in Werchter: 4th August 1990 (Nude Tour)

OLAwd. Here we go. confused
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

I would travel to any one of these countries for a one off P gig. but not for a festival appearance. Done it many times in the past and to me at least, it never feels like a real gig. hate having to wade through the other acts and the piss heads. And a lot of the time the gigs themselves are short.

Sorry didn't mean to sound negative, P gotta eat (diamonds) so this will no doubt pay for some of his mis doings.

I notice no Ireland gig then P?

lol


Actually the gig in Belgium is not part of a festival. It does take place on the festival grounds of Rock Werchter and the name of the format is Werchter Boutique.

It was a new kind of festival format that failed miserably in 2008, so the year after they only featured 1 act : Madonna. This year it's Prince.
Madonna did a full Sweet and Sticky concert, no doubt Prince will do a full show too
[Edited 4/20/10 8:00am]
No. Actually there has been a long tradition of a yearly big concert with a big name in Werchter (they just changed the name) and the festival normally takes place before or after that. We have two festivals in Werchter so nothing failed.
And sure Prince will do a full concert. I just hope that the weather will be fine but then again, it's Prince. So who cares about the weather!?

So this is why the Lotusflow3r website was shut down. Now there is not a chance in getting reduces prices on the tickets, or even to be certain of a Golden Circle spot. neutral

I predict there is going to be a lot of trouble to get tickets for the Belgian show, knowing Teleticket's reputation. The black market will see it's chance again. Oh well, let's just hope for the best.



Yep. It sucks. Paid for a year for a little music and old clips and when it's time for using my membership for real it's down..... sad

Trust me, the Werchter festival grounds are no fun place when it rains. Been there, done that.

They also suck when the sun shines, BTW, since there's very few places that offer shade. And if you bring sunscreen, don't be surprised it gets confiscated at the entrance.

Oh yeah, come early. Be prepared to wait a looooong time.

Yes, I've been there too, a couple of times and last year the rain was really crazy but after all it didn't matter that much because the concert was great!
