Damn. Yeah, those "lining up restrictions" would have changed my whole experience at the Seattle and Portland shows. neutral

Just came back from 1st show. He played an otherworldly Reggae version of Joy In Repetition. Show was off da hook!! Cause & Effect was fantasic live as was 2y2Dare. The sound at the DNA was on point too. I had a ticket to the late show but decided he couldn't top this so i sold it for face to a very deserving young lady. Go see this tour!!

its 2AM, just getting back from the LATE show.

all i can say is that this was THE BEST PRINCE CONCERT I HAVE EVER SEEN.

i have seen every tour since parade hit n run in 86.

i am a HUGE fan.

ive seen shows in large / medium / small places.

but this was different.

it was special.

i havent seem him seen this geniunely relaxed EVER.

the show was just TOO GOOD..

there was not one dull spot..

and the sound was perfect.. he looked awesome,, the crowd was respectful to eachother and going NUTS.

and i have to say, i kind of like the no cell phone rule because at other shows all you see is a swarm of cell phones in the air! it was great!

but seriously... if you have any doubt about the price.. forget it... it was UNBELIEVABLY GOOD..

he played about 2.5 hours, give or take.

here is what i can remember right now:

Lets Go Crazy - new version.. im so sick of this song but i really liked this

Endorphin Machine - OUTSTANDING

Screwdriver - great.. did the thing at the start about lync-synching.. sounded great.

She's Always in My Hair

Guitar - sounded great.

I like it there - SO GOOD, then goes into a bluesy section

Fixurelifeup - really good

ICNTTPOYM - this was beautiful

Bambi - probably the highlight of the show - it just rocked so hard

When Were dancing close and slow - the slowest number of the night but it was GORGEOUS.. seriously.. it was GORGEOUS.. sounded like a brand new song. .completely fresh....

2Y2D - this is going to be the favorite off the new album.. its a REALLY GOOD SONG

Cause and Effect - really like the harder version

encore:

crimson clover - awesome

lets go - this was probably the second highlight of the show - and this is from a person who loathes cover songs

encore 2:

sampler set.. this was NUTS!!!!! it was CRAZY!!! it went on FOREVER and EVER and EVER! im serious.. it kept going , people were having so much fun!

when doves cry - verse and chorus

nasty girl teaser

hot thing - great long version - it sounded incredible in this venue , just so loud

housequake - another great long version, i havent heard a version this long since lovesexy tour

SOTT - great

alphabet st - p took the bass and did a great long version

intro to darling nikki

pop life teaser

love bizarre

SCREAMS OF PASSION!!!!!!

i would die for you

mr goodnight

i think im leaving some things out.. but really ... my mind was just blown.. im surprised im still standing!

PRINCE reaffirmed my love for him tonight... it was really just plain magic.. it was nothing short of the best concert i have ever seen... it was as close to perfect as i could have imagined...

lesser known gems like bambi, close and slow, i like it there, shes always in my hair, endorphinmachine

inspired version of hits - ICNTTPOYM, LGC,

and an insane sampler set of hits..

im just astounded by what i just experienced..

and now i get to do it all over again tomorrow night!

Review: Prince royally rocks San Francisco

Updated: 04/24/2013 04:49:26 AM PDT

Prince was king.

His Royal Purpleness delivered in utterly regal fashion during his 8 p.m. concert Tuesday, the first of four shows performed over two consecutive nights at the 800-capacity DNA Lounge in San Francisco.

It was an awesome treat to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer perform in such an intimate venue -- well, at least it was when you could actually see him. For much of the night, many fans simply had to trust their ears to know it was Prince onstage, since trying to get a view of the vocalist-guitarist was tricky through the unbelievably packed crowd.

Yes, there is a downside to seeing a megastar in a club instead of an arena. Sightlines were poor, especially from the back of the venue, and there seemed to be a higher percentage of tall people in the crowd than what you'll find on the court at an NBA game.

Yet, all of that was greatly outweighed by the fact that we were in such close presence to greatness.

And Prince was certainly great during this roughly two-hour set.

Backed by his all-female 3rd Eye Girl band, Prince was in the mood to party and his exuberance for the music was even more important than the specific songs that populated the set list. He poured his heart, and plenty of electric guitar, into everything he played, which ranged from deep cuts to new material to longtime fan favorites.

He opened the show by paying tribute to one of rock's recently fallen heroes.

"Rest in peace Richie

Havens," Prince said in reference to the Woodstock vet, who died on Monday.

Prince later underscored that sentiment by performing an achingly emotional version of "Motherless Child," the spiritual that Havens incorporated into the signature song "Freedom" (prominently featured in the "Woodstock" film).

He definitely delivered the funk, heaping on a heavy dose early on with "Screwdriver," but mainly stuck to the rock 'n' roll, which was a delightful change of pace.

I like Prince's big arena band, especially when it features saxophonist Maceo Parker, and there are certainly songs that benefit from the horn section and the overall fire power. The 3rd Eye Girl trio, however, is a very different creature. It's built to rock, leaving plenty of room for Prince to fill with his epic guitar leads.

That said, however, the best song of the night was the somber, hushed "Sometimes It Snows in April." It was a stark, teary-eyed reminder of just how effective Prince can be on a ballad.

He drew the main set to a close with the relative obscurity "Guitar" (from 2007's "Planet Earth") and the brand new song "FixUrLifeUp," before returning for his ultimate anthem, "Purple Rain."

Prince, however, was far from being done. He kept threatening that he was leaving the stage, only to stick around and play more numbers.

"I've got too many hits," he explained.

If only more artists had that problem.

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.

Great review. I don't get it when tall people block the view. I'm tall and I just go right to the back out of courtesy to those behind me.

Great review. I don't get it when tall people block the view. I'm tall and I just go right to the back out of courtesy to those behind me.

I wish they were all like you....Most are just the usual knobheads you find frontline at Prince concerts, who get pissed off if a 1.50m tall woman tries to sneak in front of them...just because they can say "i was first row at the prince concert"...

Just came back from 1st show. He played an otherworldly Reggae version of Joy In Repetition. Show was off da hook!! Cause & Effect was fantasic live as was 2y2Dare. The sound at the DNA was on point too. I had a ticket to the late show but decided he couldn't top this so i sold it for face to a very deserving young lady. Go see this tour!!

Did you say a reggae version? Wow, interesting and big ups for reggae! Would be so cool if they released a snippet of that version on DrF's site or 3rdeyegirl site or somewhere for fans to hear, but that might be asking too much, but cool to hear in was played in a reggae version anyway.

Unbelievable night. Both shows were awesome. I would pay $100 for a recorded version of "when we're dancing close and slow". Loved that song for over 25 years and FINALLY heard it live!!!

Yeah the arrangement was great. The uptempo reggae tinged beat worked great & really represented the spirit of this tour. Prince said this is like a late set & I couldn't agree more. That's another thing the makes this tour standout. Every show/set seems like an aftershow gig. I bought a ticket to the 1st show yesterday morning after i found out they released more for charity. So glad I did. A shout out to Bill & Angie. Great to reconnect with ya'll after all these years.

I wish I'd skipped Chicago and gone to Vegas. pout

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Cool. Thanks for sharing that info. There are some artists' songs that I like, that I always wondered how it would sound if it was put to a reggae beat. It took me a while to grasp reggae, because I was used to Calypso Carribean music, and when reggae came in, thanks to Mr. Marley, of course, it took me a while to embrace it. I like Shelby's 'North Carolina track, because I recently noticed it has sort of a nice, 'funk reggae' sound which is kind of a new, type of reggae sound to me.

I would love to just hear even a snippet of how 'Joy in Repetition' sound in a reggae version. Here's hoping maybe they'll be nice and release a version of it, even if they allow it for just a short period of time for fans who haven't made it to this tour,
