Thank U to Paisley Park for the Press Passes and allowing us to officially cover this wonderful event.

It sure would be cool if the Estate released a "Prince: Best Of Celebration" DVD/Blu/VOD since they seem to be taping all of these events.

Sure. But only after the 50th Prince BluRay, if I may ask.

Friends don't let friends clap on 1 and 3.

Thanks for the great recaps!

It would be interesting to hear your criticisms and suggestions for next years Celebration.

Attendance was down again this year. Overall I enjoyed it all, except Jesse's rambling. I wish they would have showed another concert besides The Time's First Avenue '83 one. I really enjoy the outfits and was glad that they were switching the ones out in the soundstage daily. The panels were all good. Most people seemed to be having a great time, but can't speak for everyone.

How close to capacity was it? I always assumed these Celebrations would sell out.

I would estimate about 700-800 people on Track 2 this year. There were probably around 1000 last year, and maybe more than that the year before. It was a little more comfortable this year.

Is there any place to get the actual attendance numbers anywhere?

You'd have to contact someone at Paisley Park, but they probably wouldn't give that information out.
