B.T. afslører

Prince er på vej til Herning

Den amerikanske megastjerne, der kastede sit dyb-lilla lys over årets Roskilde Festival giver efter al sandsynlighed koncert i Hernings splinternye Multi Arena 8. november - bare 18 dage efter Lady Gaga.

Denne oplysning har B.T. fra en yderst troværdig og erfaren kilde i den danske koncertbranche

Og selvom musikchefen i Herning, Georg Sørensen ikke direkte bekræfter datoen, siger han følgende:

- Prince ville være et fantastisk navn for os her i Herning. Vi lever i et samfund, der er styret af efterspørgsel. Og Prince ville helt klart være et fantastisk navn for vores publikum. Men skulle vi ikke bare snakke lidt mere, når det kommer tættere på.

Ifølge B.T.'s oplysninger fik Prince godt 12 millioner kroner for at spille til årets Roskilde Festival.

Og den sidste hurdle før den endelig aftale imellem Herning Multi Arena og Prince skulle være i stand er da efter al sandsynlighed hyren.

Hvor meget skal Prince have for sine to timer.

Trods et meget svingende cd-salg i de seneste ti år er Prince stadig ét af verdens ti hotteste koncertnavne.

Og med Lady Gaga på plakaten 20. oktober sidder Georg Sørensen og folkene i Herning også med gode kort på hånden.

Begge parter står således stærkt i de igangværende forhandlinger.

Men ligesom Roskilde Festivalen bør Georg Sørensen nok skelne lidt til Prince tvivlsomme omdømme, når det drejer sig om at overholde aftaler.

I 2008 aflyste Prince således en udsolgt irsk kæmpekoncert med bare ti dages varsel.

Dét kostede efterfølgende "Hans Lille Højhed" 18 millioner kroner i erstatning.

Men.. mon ikke det skulle gå bedre denne gang.

Med Herning Multi Arena, der åbner i slutningen af september, får Danmark nemlig ikke alene en ny luksus koncertsal, der har plads til 15.000 tilskuere.

Fra starten har landets førende hi-fi- og akustik-eksperter også været med som rådgivere. Og ifølge Georg Sørensen vil lyden nærmest være "ufattelig god".

Prince is on his way to Herning

Thursday 5th of august 2010

The american megastar who throw his purple ligth over this years Roskilde Festival is in all probability on his way to the new Multi Arena in Herning on november 8th - just 18 days after Lady Gaga

BT has got this information from a extremely reliable and experienced source in the danish concert-booking buisness. And eventhough the headbooker in Herning Georg Sørensen not directly confirms the date he says that:

- "Prince would be a fantastic act to play in Herning. We live in a society which is controlled by demands from the people and our audience would love to have Prince in Herning. But I think we should talk a little further when we are closer to the date.

According to BT's informations Prince got 12 million DKR (about 2,2 million dollars) for playing at this year Roskilde festival.

And the final hurdle before the final deal between Herning Multi Arena and Prince is made should be the payment.

Despite the fact that Prince's record-sale has been variable the last 10 years he is still one of the 10 hottest liveacts.

And with Lady Gaga in the arena on 20th of October, Georg Sørensen and the people from Herning Arena has made a deal with other big acts before.

Both parts are therefore strong in making a deal.

But just as Roskilde Festival was, Georg Sørensen should be aware that Prince tends to cancel concerts.

In 2008 he canceld a huge, sold out Irish concert with 10 days notice.

That costed "The little highnes" 18 million kr (about 3,2 million dollars) in damages

But... wonder if it shouldn't be better this time.

With the new Herning Multi Arena which opens by the end of September this year, Denmark isn't just getting a new luxurious concert-hall with a capacity of 15.000. They also gonna get the best hi-fi- and acoustics-experts as designers.

According to Georg Sørensen the sound will be inconceivable good!
