I've got other pics, but these are probably the best. If anyone wants to see more, let me know.

That's so cool that you got seats close to the stage. I hope we get that lucky in Greensboro. We are in the 5th row of the upper level.

We ended up with great seats--we started in the top row of the arena. The wife had to go to the bathroom about 30 minutes before the show. Returning into the arena, an usher was standing there, handing out tickets to better seats to those sitting in the stratosphere. So, we went from the rafters to the 22nd row from the floor.

If this happens in Greensboro, I will be one happy camper! cool

They were right next to the stage (the "back" of the stage), where the circular part of the symbol is. At least these were the only tables I saw. There could have been more toward the pointed end of the symbol.

The crowd was kinda sparse before Mint Condition took stage. I think Columbia holds around 18,000, and when MC took stage, it was less than half full. Luckily, by the time P hit the stage, I'd say it was around 70-75% full. If I had paid $100 and knew that people who bought $20 tix (like me) were getting as good (if not better) seats than I had, I would be pissed!

I don't think there was a new tourbook. Someone else probably knows more about any new merchandise than me. I don't think there was anything that wasn't at the previous shows.

No tourbook... it was the only merchandise that I planned to buy and I headed straight to the merchandise tables when the doors opened, only for them to tell me that there are NO tourbooks for this particular tour.

As for the concert, this was my very first Prince concert.... I don't know how it ranks to others who have seen numerous shows over the years... but, I thought it was AMAZING!!! Almost 3 hours of music, a huge party where the whole place was dancing, killer musicianship, showmanship, lighting, sound... seeing it in person as opposed to video has really opened my eyes!!! Just great!!!

I also upgraded my seats from Section 8 to Section 4 when I got to the venue, which is the best thing I could have done...by the last hour and a half, I and others were allowed to stand by the VIP section right at the arrow. And people were right, he spent most of the time facing the arrow and hanging out around that piano. It was worth paying the extra $80 to upgrade...I even made eye contact with the man during the times he walked down the arrow.

The place was also PACKED!!! I was suprised--I kept quiet about it, but I was in the camp of people who thought the tickets were too high. And combined with the short notice, this being SC and the recession, I expected there to be many empty seats and a half empty arena...a disaster. But no, Prince had a nice crowd. I don't know if it sold out or not...but, it was pretty full.

And after initially thinking the $199 was too much for one ticket (my wife and I recently purchased 2 seventh row tickets to see Rush in Greenville that totaled $201)...I now understand... I get it. Now, I wanna go do it again. And I would pay that amount again.

Thank you for sharing this gemari77. It was heartfelt and well-written.

I'm so glad you had such a fantastic experience.

Were the tickets prices for "good" not VIP seats really $200.00 each? Just trying to plan accordingly as this tour makes its way around the country.

Thank you. I thought I could see them in the pics posted above, but wasn't sure. They look like little circle tables high off the ground. Looks like there's a lot of room to dance!!!

He may do a professional book like he did with the 21 Nights tour. I went to 2 performances on that tour and I don't remember seeing a tour book but I did buy the book because it had the CD for the 21 Nights concert which was actually the performance from the after show. I only wanted the CD though and not the book but it was worth it for me. Don't fret for he may do the same thing with this tour. And that was a good price for the concert for I paid more in New York City to see him but the price was about $25 less in New Jersey. I went to both. And yes, I'm nuts but it's worth it as you now know to see him live! wink

Be glad and rejoice for the Lord has done marvelous things!

Fixed the link for you and here's the article:

Review: After 30 years, Prince brings plenty of energy

By Otis Taylor Jr.

Prince was in a rather talkative mood, his words serving a lyrical purpose as he and his band extended percussive and melodic riffs.

At times, he was speaking directly to us-"Ya'll gonna make me sweat," "Oh we gonna get funky now" or "They ain't heard that, let me say it again." Other times, it was as if he was speaking to himself, staring in a mirror. "What's my name?," he asked on more than one occasion.

There wasn't any doubt that the crowd at the Colonial Life Arena knew whom they were there to see, but Prince, a performer with an iconic history, has always had chameleonic tendencies. I'd rather watch Prince preen on the guitar more than any other arena-sized performer touring, but when the choice is between, say, five minutes of brilliant guitar-drum-keyboard interplay or a song from his catalog of hits, I'd choose the latter. The first half of Monday night's concert, announced just 10 days in advance, was more of the former.

It was entertaining in the way that some movie-theater previews are when building big-budget anticipation. "Who wanna dance with me," Prince asked before audience members, including WIS-10's Judi Gatson, were brought on stage to dance. The gentleman in the purple trench coat and white shirt with a ruffled collar and sleeves upstaged them all. Prince wondered allowed what he should do with the fellow, before allowing the impersonator to dance as if he was the center of attention. It didn't last long, but the people dancing on the stage lasted too long.

It felt like filler, particularly if one is comparing the set to the one Prince performed at the arena in 2004. At that show, he opened the second half with an acoustic set that was beautiful, emotional.

Nothing reached that level Monday, but that isn't to say there weren't moments of sheer bliss.

"Let's Go Crazy" was rendered as a rock ballad, with the band, New Power Generation, toying with tempo and emphasis between the verses and choruses. John Blackwell, the Columbia native who anchors the band on drums, was clearly noticeable, especially during the band's transitions which were tighter than the state budget. The synth interlude into "Little Red Corvette," punctuated by Prince involving the crowd with hand claps, was tricky, unexpected.

After an outfit change, Prince, in what appeared to be silky white pajamas/leisure suit, was at his sexiest. His movements were less about dancing and more about erotic expression. And what of this gesture: his right arm was placed behind his head with his right hand on his left cheek as one finger caressed his face? The move was attempted after the show and it didn't achieve the same result: thousands of women screaming.

He performed "Insatiable," "Scandalous" and "Adore" in a thrilling three-song run. His falsetto was marked with squeals of delight, intimacy and reckless lust. The squeals were also controlled and reserved, much like the snippets of songs – "Darling Nikki" and The Time's "777-9311" immediately come to mind-of which he only gave the crowd a whiff.

Prince kept referring to the old school, and there were plenty of folks nearing the middle and end of their careers in attendance. (He also repeatedly said "Carolina," something he'll be saying a lot over the next nine days during his tour through North and South Carolina.) But there were also a lot of faces too young to remember "Purple Rain"-era Prince.

In other words, Prince still has the look-even if he didn't play "Raspberry Beret." He sounded inspired, not worn or drowsy, something that can be expected – or at least appreciated – from someone who has been releasing music for almost 30 years.

The same can't be said for opener Mint Condition, a band I looked forward to seeing. There was a sound issue: the lead singer wasn't audible. There were various versions of why – lost voice, microphone malfunction, tracking problems – and when asked for a comment, the arena said it had none. (Attendance numbers were also not released.)

My disappointment was tempered by Prince's stellar performance. That's why we were there, right? So while I'm talking about it, I'd like to see Prince again before another seven years pass.

Of course, he didn't mention when he is coming back.

Still got a Purple Hangover mayne! Feels good! Also my first show and it was everything I expected from the man, but even better actually being there to witness it all firsthand. Really makes up for missing the '04 musicology tour when i had no j-o-b and therefore, no ends lol. That "rush of excitement" didn't really hit me until that 4th "false start" before the band finally made their way to the stage. When dude rose up from the middle of that glyph, the place went nuts!! If i could be any more financially irresponsible, I would pick up another ticket for the charlotte show lol. If you can swing it, see this show people!

My friend and I arrived shortly after Mint Condition started playing and the arena appeared to be approx. 60% full, but when Prince hit the stage capacity appeared to grow to at least 85 to 90% from where I was seated (sect 106 row 6). I loved every minute of it. Prince will be 53 in June and I'm 51. For me, the chance to see my favorite artist perform live for the first time since 1988 was on my bucket list. All was not perfect last night, but it came close enough to make me happy and that's what counts imho. Peace everybody! heart

my second time seeing prince, i enjoyed it much more than the musicology tour. was very happy with the set list, especially opening with d.m.s.r. and pop life.. my favs!! only thing missing was "do me baby." the look alike guy was pretty entertaining, thought prince was going to throw him off the stage. i wasn't looking foward to seeing mint condition, i would prefer silk. his mic being off for most of the time they were on stage made it even more dreadful. i bought the 20$ tickets which were section 212 row 16... second row from the back wall i believe but ended up in section 107.. a man up top was passing them out, i guess because all the lower level seats weren't sold. very lucky, much better seats!! great show, he kept everyone anticipating and wanting more. wish i could go to alll the carolina shows!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING!!! I'm sure Prince will mix things up a bit before I get to see him in Charlotte on Thurs, but I HOPE NOT!!! What a great list.

ONE QUESTION~ Did Prince stay at the piano for the entire 3rd encore or did he move around for the full songs? I'm on the oposite side of the "symbol", but had I known the piano was on that side...you know I would have tried my best for those seats instead. Can NOT wait until Thurs!!

if anyone was paying attention/there before the show started when they were playing videos from morris day, etc.. there was a video of female, maybe rosie gaines or chaka khan, or at least looked like one of them, not sure of any of the words, it was kind of dark sounding and in black and white.. any one know the song?

Can't remember exactly...was it a slow song? I know they played "Time Waits for No One" by Mavis Staples

Here is a review from the State (Columbia newspaper):

http://www.thestate.com/2...rince.html

Fixed the link for you and here's the article:

"Let's Go Crazy" was rendered as a rock ballad, with the band, New Power Generation, toying with tempo and emphasis between the verses and choruses.
This is new. I would love to hear that! cool
