PRINCE PLAYS MONTREUX 2013 !!!! 13 + 14 + 15 JULY 2013 AUDITORIUM STRAVINSKY MONTREUX PART 3

3 Nights, 3 Shows, He's back!


After his two previous appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007 and 2009, Prince is back to give three exceptional concerts on 13, 14 and 15 July 2013.

This musical genius first came to Montreux in 2007 to perform an exclusive concert, and returned in 2009, giving two shows in the same evening. This year he is back, confirming his fondness for Montreux, to give three exceptional concerts on three consecutive dates: 13, 14 and 15 July 2013, at the Auditorium Stravinski.

Groovy, funky and the undisputed master of improvisation, Prince’s performances are all unique and unpredictable. There is no doubt that his three concerts in Montreux will make Festival history once again.


Auditorium Stravinski

Prince 1st show - Saturday 13 July, 8 pm
Prince 2nd show - Sunday 14 July, 8 pm
Prince 3rd show - Monday 15 July, 8 pm

--------------------------------------------------------

Continuation from Part 2: http://prince.org/msg/12/396477

ALT+PLS+RTN: Pure as a pane of ice. It's a gift.

What on earth is Montreux going to be like?!?!

The way the last few weeks have been, these could be the best gigs EVER!!! Throw in a bit of 3rd Eye Girl at an aftershow & it will be truly insane.

Can't believe the tunes we are going to get in only a few days time. Like many, have suffered the hits (but some incredible after/shows along the way) for the last 6-7 years & ready for a change. I'd give my left nut to have seen a 3rd Eye Girl show, WOW!! As for the Extraloveable Rehearsal, it's on a constant loop!!! a 20 piece band, oh yeah!

Prince has really turned it on it's head right now, whether bandleader or guitar hero, we are going to get some great shows!!!!

See everyone there Saturday!!!!! I can't f@#king wait!!!!!

Couple of interesting numbers, but overall pretty meh.

And at this point that NAACP medley needs to be taken out behind the garage and put out of its misery.

Seriously. WTF is up with that? It was great when it happened but what's it been now, like 7-8 years? It's just kind of weird at this point.

Inside the show it was not "meh." Fantastic vibe, great crowd, amazing horns section, very fun. Prince didn't play a single instrument, played bandleader all night, ended 3rd encore with a touching redition of Purple Rain as tribute to the founder of the festival who died recently. Great show, after party starting at 2am.

With all due respect, if you are going to criticize the makeup of this setlist, you're just trolling.

It's NOT a "Greatest Hits" list. It contains unbelievable hidden gems and outtakes. It has new songs. It uses an 11-piece horn section, so you can be sure that even on standard songs, the arrangement is totally different.

It is the antithesis of the "21 Nights/Extended Stay' setlists, which the same people also criticized.

Yes, if you want to criticize this setlist, you're really not adding a thing to this site.

I was at the show, quite close to the stage. Yes, it was a fun show, but great? Not really. Montreux 2009 was way better. I think Prince was really lazy. 20 musicians on stage. He didn't play guitar. Or any other instrument (except percussions, at some point). Yes, his voice can be seen as his main "instrument", but he's 55 and it shows. Also, Shelby J might be nice and all, but I don't need to hear her again in my life. Really. Once in 2007 was enough.

I was told Monday is going to be the "different" night (3rd Eye Girl only?). Can't wait!

But what are you adding to this site when you leave no room for criticism? Someone with a different opinion than yours is a troll? Please. The 8 year old NAACP medley is worn out and tired to some of us, and it's a valid criticism.
