Great show! Knew to expect a lot of the hits and less newer material so no real surprise there. The man looked like he was in a great mood. And the show goes on and on and on ... Loving it!

Highlights for me were:

Let's go crazy

Purple Rain

Kiss

Controversy

Guitar

Forever In My Life

Ol Skool Kompany

(and the snippet of Hot Summer smile )

Looking forward to the Werchter gig.

Homer: Purple Rain!!
Little Richard: Shut up!
Homer (to Marge): Oh my God, Michael Jackson just told me to shut up!

Just got back home to Cambridge! Arras show was great. P was in a great mood and didn't want to stop, going 30 minutes over the curfew.

Jams were a little long winded, but Little red corvette, Mountains And Peach were stunners.

The only shame is that he gives Mint Condition and Larry so much time, he starts late and then runs out of time just as he is hitting his stride!

Also, the event organisation was terrible. Gold Circle was a third of the venue, it was a 30 minute queue to get in and 20 minute queue to get a set of tickets before you could get a drink at the empty bars!

No Merchandise, except for all Larry stuff with NO ONE buying any of it!

Yes I heard the lyrics on the last album(s).. but which album do you mean?

20ten, lotusflower, mplsound ?

For my taste, these lyrics were not as good inspired as his older work.

I thought a lot of the lyrics on his latest work were kinda lame, when it comes to the love songs!

The other lyrics are wonderful, but the love songs lyrics were just not that interesting,

his new love songs always leave a big ???? because he's singing about that there is somewhere a love for him and in his songs are lot of maybes .

His lyrics just didn't sounded like he found his special one!

If he is with Bria for that long time now, why he won't make a beautiful love song for her when

she inspires him SO much?

Got anyone pictures by prince and bria in arras? biggrin

Prince was having some difficulty with sound and lighting issues...

I especially liked his "turn the lights OFF! 1001, turn the lights off..." lights go off "well done, there you go!" lol

Indeed! The group I was in kept saying this MUST be the last one as Mint Condition did yet another overblown (Prince Vegas-type) ending to EVERY song. No, one more...

Thankfully Larry didn't stay too long although ending his encore in the exact same way as he ended his main set was just poor ***shakes head***

AND (my major gripe with Larry) he didn't acknowledge Prince for asking him to join him at Arras. Prince always gives Larry HUGE credit for evrything, yet Larry never seems to pay Prince any compliments. Hands up who knew who Larry Graham was before Prince started kissing his ass! Grrr!
