looks like tons of $200 seats left..........and plenty of $500 floor seats.......ticketmaster is now letting you use a map so you can find your own seats (also looks like about 170 of the $22 seats ended up on Stubhub and going for $100 and up)

You're sure about that, are you?

If he needed the money he would do a big 90 city tour like in 2004. Are you aware he made 80 million on that and has done the o2 thing and other tours since then. I am sure with investments and royalties he is good.

Oh, you mean when he had an album that actually had chart impact to support? Had the momentum of the R&R Hall of Fame induction, 20th anniversary of Purple Rain, & a much-talked about Super Bowl performance, instead of 2 mediocre albums that went nowhere? Is that what you're talking about?

Right, because Prince has no history of being concerned about being number one at the bank. None at all...

And people on this board said that tour would bomb and he was finished. If you need cash you get out and really tour you write and produce songs. He owns his masters so he could put songs in every movie and t.v show known to man. He does not act like someone who is desparate for cash. In addition so what if he likes money dumbass wants to be poor? Maybe people who have had money their whole lives who really need to shut the fuck up.

People on this board said the Musicology tour would bomb. They then said Prince would never sell out 21 nights at London's O2 arena in 2007 and he still did - despite having no hit records or high profile appearances behind him.

You're one woefully mistaken sycophant, which is news to no one who has been here for any length of time. I suppose you were there in the room when Prince signed his most recent deal with WB, so why don't you shed some light for us all on the exact details of his contract? Your claim that he owns his masters is nothing but complete speculation. You know nothing of the conditions, so please don't waste anyone's time pretending.

There is a great deal of difference between the Musicology tour & these nonsensical hit & run shows. For one, that was an actual tour, with dates that were scheduled.

There's nothing wrong with liking money. However, artists who are considerably more wealthy also show considerably more class & don't talk about it nearly as much as he does.

The morning radio shows are less than impressed. They are asking many of the same questions that have been asked here. "Why are the tickets so expensive for a peace rally"? "What portion of the proceeds will actually go towards helping Baltimore?" "Why not just release the song on iTunes and donate all the proceeds to Baltimore charities?"

A whole lot of people are paying close attention, that's one thing that's for damn certain.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Who knows?! Anyway...I think it's all about giving people a sense of participation with this, and then he'll play whatever he wants... razz

Some people will even claim "hey that's my choice, I said that!" lol

.

Here's another idea, if you were allowed to bring signs to the concert...what would your sign say?

Right, because Prince has no history of being concerned about being number one at the bank. None at all...

Regardless of recent charts, Prince is still one of the worlds biggest touring acts, and that's regardless of how many angry orgers there are in the world. And as others have mentioned, there are far better ways of making money than one off shows very randomly when he could be making more than 10 times the money with a full tour.

.

As with a few other high ticket performances he's played on a one off basis in conjunction with Van Jones's Rebuild the Dream --Chicago, New Orleans-- his motivation for the shows was actually political, not because he needed the attention or money, but because he was helping Van raise money for the YesWeCode project.

.

And regarding yourspeculations about motives, I'm all for being skeptical when things don't add up, and certainly in the past there've been things with Prince where there was motive to be skeptical, but in each case you don't go from wild speculation to skepticism, you go from a sound analysis of facts and from THERE one should feel free to speculate if the facts don't add up. That way you don't start saying things that make you look completely silly and misinformed.

Change it one more time..

This is Prince's first trip to the DMV since 2006 in a small club in DC -- people from four states were trying to get tickets for this gig. I don't know why some people feel like it should be free or dirt cheap ( although there were certainly enough under- market value tickets to be had ) those tickets sold out first. Ticketmaster and live nation sites both got overloaded at different times.

Whoever says he can't sell out a 14,000 seat arena with little notice is just wrong

"Regardless of recent charts, Prince is still one of the worlds biggest touring acts, and that's regardless of how many angry orgers there are in the world."

The same can be said of Jimmy Buffett.

"And as others have mentioned, there are far better ways of making money than one off shows very randomly when he could be making more than 10 times the money with a full tour."

Unfortunately, what can be said of Jimmy Buffett here, cannot be said of Prince, unless he's opened a massively successful chain of restaurants & resorts I haven't heard about? Nope? Didn't think so. Just a string of one-off concerts. And as some have pointed out, they haven't been as successful in recent years as you want to think.

"And regarding yourspeculations about motives, I'm all for being skeptical when things don't add up, and certainly in the past there've been things with Prince where there was motive to be skeptical, but in each case you don't go from wild speculation to skepticism, you go from a sound analysis of facts and from THERE one should feel free to speculate if the facts don't add up.

Look at the ticket prices. Who is the audience? Affluent white people & the drug kingpins of Baltimore? What sort of cause is Prince trying to rally?

And still in the meantime, while we wait to see what Prince will/won't do, can/can't do, should/shouldn't do, might/might not do, probably but most likely not hardly about to do. Other's are showing how generosity of spirit is truly done without all the hoopla and such.

http://www.dailykos.com/s...cebook_sf#

Comedian Stephen Colbert announced Thursday that he would fund every existing grant request South Carolina public school teachers have made on the education crowdfunding website DonorsChoose.org.

Colbert made the announcement on a live video feed Thursday at a surprise event at Alexander Elementary School in Greenville.

Colbert partnered with Share Fair Nation and ScanSource to fund nearly 1,000 projects for more than 800 teachers at over 375 schools, totaling $800,000.

Depends on where the money for the exorbitantly priced tickets goes I suppose. In Prince's pocket or to the victims of the families.

Cause they're skeptical and cynical about where the bulk of the cash will wind up. If it goes to the families and the community, then fine. If it lines the pockets of people who are already rich and powerful then it's straight up exploiting a tragedy for profit.
