Anyone have code for Ticketmaster? Essence?,.....Bueller?
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.

THANKS for your clarification. i was also on a call to Tickemaster when I left orginal message. The Ticketmaster supervisor was gratious enough to called the box office who said Prince was officially changed from closing to Friday...i wonder will there be an aftershow and the possibility of Prince preforming with Liv on Saturday and/or the Roots Saturday night sun

I bought 4 tickets that I now can not use if anyone is interested in buying.

They are are sitting together and are in section 141

The face value of them is $204.00 per ticket

They're decent seats sitting in section 141, seats 9-12.

I was all set with reservations to be there including air and hotel, thinking he was ging to close the show on Sunday.

There's no way I'nm getting a hotel on the 4th of July at this date that's either reasonable or in a safe area.

I hope I don't get stuck with the tickets sad

It's going to very difficult to find a hotel in N.O. at this point and one that is reasonable. I consider $150.00 - 200.00 reasonable.

However, it took me a week to find one in that range and a hotel that wasn't a dump or in an shady neighborhood. It took lots of research and going and various travel booking sites.

Most hotels were either sold out, wanted a 3 night minimum because of the holiday weekend or were outrageously priced at $500.00 per night.

The festival gets booked pretty far in advance and as early as 10 months away.

Totally bummed not to be going, but if you are fortunate enough to find accomodations and I still have the tickets, I will be more than happy to pass them along to you.

I'm also willing to sell them in pairs or as singles since there are four of them.

You realize that when Prince was young, people from the older generation were just as dismissive of him, right? Bieber and 1 Direction, well there's been teen idols always. But Gaga is actually an incredibly talented piano player and vocalist.

I agree with you about Lady Gaga, but it's a shame that she's gone down the freak show route... There is a talented musician underneath the meat dresses and the coloured vomit...

Have you tried the Bed and Breakfasts and or joining other orgers to share 2 of the 3 days and split the cost. Also, try Triple A rates for additional rooms not set aside by the Essence block of rooms.

Priceline and the Airlines will sometimes beat and/or match most of the listed prices.

I will be praying for you to prosper either way to either attend the concerts with a wonderful hotel package deal and/or successfully selling your tickets. Actually I'm hoping maybe I can buy one of the tickets in the near future, if you have one left.

But what ever, I'll be praying, for what's beneficial to you sun

Was it good 4 U?

Yes it was. Made a short comment about it, in the Assoc Artists' section.
Rest in Power Elijah Cummings. Thank you for your fight for human rights/justice. Your legacy will never die in vain.

I had a good Triple A rate for the hotel that I had booked, which was July 5th - 8th. I booked that back in February and most hotels were already sold out or wanted $500+ per night. Needless to say by the time the single tickets went on sale and it was announced the Prince was opening, hotels are booked solid. The only things that available are motels with a 1 star rating or something too far away.

Priceline is not cooperating - I've tried every venue/site I coudl think of.

If you're still interested in the ticket, let me know.

Single night tickets were not on sale yet when I booked the hotel. Only packages for the entire weekend were on sale. I was told he was closing the festival, therefore, I booked the room accordngly.

have you considered staying outside of NO? and renting a car perhaps. I know there are several small towns in MS very close by that have hotels still available for very low rates. I know because I just booked a hotel in MS

My mom and I are definitely going to see Prince. I just wished this concert got as much attention as the other Prince gigs. I want to know if there will be after-parties or anything. This will be my first Prince concert so I'm truly excited.
