Yeah, disappointing. Here's a link to the Dr. Funkenberry announcement, for anyone interested, though:


http://www.drfunkenberry....um=twitter

Dates are August 21-25. Princes are high, for what it is: $75-$100 all nights except for Sunday, which is $200-$350(!) Damn ... this is why I haven't seen Prince in concert since 2004. I am a few hours from NYC, but this is over my budget and with little chance of seeing him play. I will be going to a FREE concert on Wednesday, Aug 7 in NYC with Bilal and Vivian Green, though. Recommend for anyone near the city:

omfg based on all the negativity on the "sticky" lets try 2 keep it positive on this thread... recently I had the priviledge 2 meet and c Shelby perform @ The Red Lion in NYC. She had support from family/friends (Liv was there 2)... great night 4 great cause and Shelby was genuinely nice 2 my wife and I as her possee crowded our little table up front. 2 days later had the priveledge of seeing Liv and NPG members (including Shelby) perform @ City Winery. Liv's voice was pure velvet and the 2 of them together VERY powerful. So hard 2 understand the negativity in light of such talent.

These shows will b great... and if Prince performs, even better bringiton

Nah...don't get it twisted....

Negativity is getting yet another "Prince has lost it" post on a Prince fan site no less...

Negativity is reading the likes of Bart going on and on once again about how P is playing the same 'ol playlist (when he really isn't)...

This ^^^^is is all negatvity....I'm rolling with Prince when it comes to such phony, Troll complaints....

But....

Making a reasonable observation that it's side-eye worthy that one of the greatest live performers of all time is pulling a bait and switch at such high ticket prices for some back-up singers? That's not being negative...That's being an objective, clear headed fan...

As someone who lives in New York, I don't mind seeing Shelby or Liv......ONSTAGE WITH PRINCE....lol....I have no issue with them....

But paying that much just to see them perform without knowing if P is even going to show up? Nah...That's some bullshit...lol

U make a good point Murph about the bait & switch tactic. Eye guess what eye was referring 2 was the negative comments that seemed directed at Shelby more than anything... Her and Liv are excellent live performers and gifted musicians as well that deserve more respect.

Only thing 2 add is how some people may feel if they choose not 2 go because there's no certainty of Prince performing, and he ends up performing every night... Those $75 tix gonna look cheap then, huh? Lol

Either way, with this crew it's gonna b funky!

The thing is why do it in the first place? Why play chicken with the fans? If it's a Shelby/Liv gig, then keep it 100....There's no need for Prince photos or the whole "Prince may be in the house" hyping...

Charge the $75 to $300 plus for the tickets and deal with the empty house that will def. happen without Prince...

Again, I'm rolling with Prince when it comes to the usual TROLLS on this site...But questioning this weird tactic is simply being objective....

But I have a feeling when they struggle with ticket sales Prince will suddenly be front and center on the bill....

I'm keeping my fingers crossed....

Would seem quite logical that Prince will be in town for the week in that case. Pop in for a show or two.

Hello btw! Wanted to post about the Stockholm show before it happened, but the five day wait to post wasn't really the greatest idea for a forum unfortunately.

Looks like the announcement is 4 a screening of Purple Rain, not Montruex Jazz Fest confuse Not quite what eye was hoping 4, but cool way 2 kick off the "Purple Week" @City Winery.
