Wow, I'd much rather run face first into a propelor, Then glue my tongue to a condemned meat van and get dragged through twenty to thirty Nettle bushes. Then take an acid bath and toss in a few electrical appliances than hear Shelby J SHOUT.

At the one show Prince will show up for at the City Winery, he'll play the "2005 NAACP Vanguard Jam", a Larry Graham tune and "Nothing Compares 2 U" and bounce. Gotta hand to Prince for making a lot of money on small intimate gigs for minimal work. Just let your background singers do half the vocal parts and direct the band to the end. This is ridiculous. Let's start a pool on the first show he'll play at City Winery? I say he'll play on the first night at the midnight show and will got back to Paisley Park.

Hilarious that Prince thinks this background vocalist residency is a big deal. Its a stretch to think anyone would be willing to shell out $ for this exhibition. I know he believes in their talents & rightfully so but their not enuff on their own to justify those prices.

the 'prince presents' bit is there just to shift tickets to this lame concert series. Shelby shouting "clap your hands" 1000 times whilst the circus horns make a racket?

no thanks

sounds like a cool idea to me. I'm sure these shows will sell out in more ways than one.

Going by price alone, I guess Prince is pretty likely to roll up for the Sunday show. Extortion, though.

This is interesting. Prince is, in a way, a promoter for this series of shows. It is being "teased" that there will be a "hot mike" each night in case he wants to join in and that there will be "special guests."
*
Bonuses: They should be good shows. These musicians are no slouches. It's a small venue that gets positive reviews.
*
Cons: NO GUARANTEE THAT PRINCE WILL BE THERE. The singers are mmmkay. The whole "special guest" concept has gotten murky where Prince is concerned. Pricey, but only outrageously so on the final night.
*
IMHO, this is not earth shattering Prince news and it borders on Bait-and-Switch. It's a shame because it would be a good run on its own, so there's no need for the smoke & mirrors.
I'm firmly planted in denial

---- He will make money and you jealous people will just have to get the fuck over it. Both these chicks can actually sing and if he had some half dress chick up there yelping none of you would bat an eyeball.

P can keep playing games and I'll continue to watch from afar and save my pennies. Good luck to those who guess correctly and attend the show he's at. Hey, you have a one in six shot! Maybe I'd go if I lived in NYC and had hundred dollar bills coming out of my ass, but I'm gonna have to pass for now.

Cripes....it's painful enough having to suffer Shelby J's hollering instructions at an actual Prince show...I really couldn't handle a Shelby Headline act for free... let alone being asked to shell out serious dollars for the priveledge.

I wouldn't be surprised when prince pops up 2 times just for the unpredictability of it. These Tix have to sell.

It's not my cup of tea. I wish them good luck with a wonderful show and without Prince cloak and dagger antics and disappointed Prince fans.

$100 TO $350 for "Prince might show up" is a seriously lame way to market a show. Further evidence that Prince hates his fans.

So there will be 5 groups of very disappointed concert goers, and one very happy crowd. Way to go Prince, you have this audience/fan interaction thing nailed.
