I think a bit wishful for tonight. It sounded like Prince's voice needed a rest towards the end of the show.

On that note, what are the official or semi-official Twitter handles that may give us news on Aftershows?

Life it ain't real funky unless you got that orgPop.

That was a fun show!
Highlights for me were-

The way he sang the verse of Dirty Mind
The rock n roll piano playing
Kiss/Black Sweat
Hearing him play Starfish n Coffee
Cream

A different version of Purple Rain. I'm pretty sure it was about Denise, just as I Love You But I Don't Trust You Any More definitely was.

I feel lucky to have been there

cool

Purple Rain was sublime. The one moment of the show that I felt fully immersed and not just watching from a seat.

A few other songs from tonight:
Diamonds and Pearls
Cream
When the lights go down
Kiss
Black sweat

I have to say, the diversity of songs in Melbourne has been pretty great. I went to 3 out of the 4 shows, and they all felt pretty different.

Some might complain about the show length but it felt good at the length it was.

Briefly attended the Aria party. No kit set up for an after show so bailed... Odd choice of venue e.

OMG I forgot to mention When the Lights Go Down! It was early in the show and it must've brought a smile to all the true fans in the room.

Just sitting around here in Holland, hoping for a boot to surface soon. This sounds rather good. But, honestly, I don't know if I'd pay more than 100 Eu for this piano concert concept. We'll see what hapens when he hits Holland or Belgium smile

Aria's Facebook site is now thanking Prince for the Official After Party with Prince https://www.facebook.com/...ndevents/#

And @Prince3EG is saying some fans danced with Prince at the Afterparty https://twitter.com/Princ...2757163008 so maybe ir was not an AfterSHOW bit an AfterPARTY so there was no band??

Sounds like there was no aftershow after show 4 in Melb.
But instead a private after party

Tweets @Prince3EG
@Prince3EG: 10m: When ur at a private afterparty and u find urself dancing with Prince. Priceless. Thanku @Prince3EG @AlwaysInUrHair I saw u lol

With this
@clairehennekam: @Prince3EG I waited outside for hours, but had to leave sad My friends danced with you, I'm so thrilled for them! Next time, Mr Nelson... You

@DGCaroline: @PurpleFP @clairehennekam @Prince3EG it appears quite some Aussies got in, so probably not THAT private 😃
@clairehennekam: @DGCaroline @PurpleFP @Prince3EG hundreds queued up for hours, about 20 got in (in addition to the invite guests). So, fairly private :-)

@DGCaroline: @clairehennekam @PurpleFP oh... yes, pretty private indeed! I guess I just saw a couple of tweets about lucky ones & jumped 2 conclusions 😞

No idea how anyone heard about it

So it looks like Prince just teased his Twitter followers with a Melbourne aftershow then just holds a private aftershow. Well that sucks.

Btw the tweet earlier in the week said
Afterparty
So maybe the only shows where prince will actually perform are the concerts we already know about.

@Prince3EG: ONLY TALKS PRINCE IS IN: WHERE 2 HAVE THE AFTERPARTY IN MELBOURNE ON THE 17TH? THOUGHTS? https://t.co/7JlvBtPnJx

But if an afterSHOW does eventuate pls post -I'd be devastated to miss another one.

Same here. I'm sure he will come to our part of the world sooner or later, because he knows he can be assured of sell-out theatres here. I think being able to see the guy in Carre is worth a few €€€. This seems like something different from his previous tours and that's good. He can do the greatest hits tours with 3EG or the NPG on autopilot. This is something else. I'm happy for the fans down under that they got to see this! cool

I paid $235 for a box seat. I would not have payed $400 and this is really a strech for people who did.

The salaries here are twice what you get paid in Europe, but the cost of living is 3 times higher. I expect european tickets to be cheaper.

I was at the afterparty and I did wonder why Head stopped playing halfway through.
Noone would have known it was Prince telling them to turn it off, he didn't make a big deal about it. To most people it would have just sounded like they mixed to the next song.

I was at the first Melbourne show and this one. Both had amazing setlists but the energy at the final show was magical.
