I got in right before Redheaded Stepchild began. They tried to scoot us all away several times and threatened. But I got the word for sure at 8:30 late, got dressed again after a 12 hour day and drove 80 miles in the rain. I wasnt bout to be detered so easily. We stayed and prevailed, and Princes geetar wailed.

Diamond girl are you serious??!! I would have called the police on those folks. That is stone ignorant. Prince is not THAT important that you gotta leave your kids in the car!

Thanks, she's doing fine now.

By the way, the most disturbing thing of the night was seeing Prince limp on and off stage. I thought he might have been strutting, but the more I saw him it looked more like a limp. I guess there's more to that hip injury than I was willing to believe. He seemed fine with it, he did hand the guitar to the front row and it was more like he gave it to the crowd than one person. People were playing it, well huh making it make loud noise and it kinda provided some cover as they all hustled off stage.

When the lights came back on, someone from Tower got on the mic and said something to the effect that this was the greatest in-store performance he'd seen there in 20 years and we're likely to never see anything this great again. It's really a small store, but Prince lives very nearby.

for all you getting salty because you couldn't see the tower records show last night, think about it for a minute: being a prince geek, you're NEVER going to be able to get to EVERY surprise show he does. just enjoy what you can manage to see, and let other people enjoy what they're able to show up to. really, i'm telling the truth here, it's good for your blood pressure to just LETITGO. nod

Man, if u check one of the other threads about P maybe playing, you'll see that I posted that I called the store and asked for the manager, thinking that they would know for sure. This was around 3 pm. He told me that no, P DEFINATELY would not be there and it was just some karoke thing of folks singing their fave P songs and the winner would get $312.00 shopping spree and P's new album. That was it. Then around 8 pm, a girl called me asking if I was hip that P was MAYBE playing at Tower. I was like "Huh?! The manager told me straight out, no." Why would he tell me that? It's a free thing anyway. I mean, all he had to do was say something like "It's a possibility" and I would have chanced it and went. By the time Melanie, the girl who called me, and I got down there, it was pushing 9:30. There was no way we were getting in at that time. I've seen P many times live, but never for free. And for him to do it at a store that I've gone to all of my life, ...I'm more let down cuz the manager lied to me and I fell for it.

It's kind of long so bare with me here.

Ok since I never add my two cents I want to this time. I am still pretty much in awe I am sure my bf is to. (Both are 22 well he turned 23 the 20th and NO I DID NOT FORGET ANGEL) This is my second time ever to see Prince perform live. The first time I saw him at the Roxy when he perormed with Tamar. Awesome show that was to.(Though I got to know Tamar in a very crashing wrestling moveish kind of way.) Anyways this one even though shorter and even though since me being so short, I could only get little glimpses of him when the crowd would part. I still say it's the best darn show I have EVER saw. (so far come on world tour come on world tour.) I live in Palmdale and wasn't going to go down to Towers yesterday because of the rain but when I kept seeing messages here I called my bf and said lets go NOW. We made it down around 9:30 wristbands were out but we still decided to stand in line just in case. After 11 the maybe get in line started moving, then this lady came out and was like no absolutely no more can go in. That was about 4 people before us. Then the line started moving
again and my bf grabbed my arm and was like come on they are letting more in. I dunno how I got knocked off from him but when I looked up he was in and I was standing there with the lady from Tower in my face and shes like nope no more. I was pretty upset at that point my friend who I met through other shows grabbed my arm and was like we are going to get you in. So we are standing there and shes telling the lady that my bf was in there and I needed to get my jacket from him. Some other security guy came out and was like ok 20 more so we were pretty much amped that we would be next to go in. About 5 mins later they let us in. It was cool because I found my bf we had like 3 people in front of us and of course they were TALL but its ok at least we both made it in. It was pretty much all smokey and I think I was smelling incense burning maybe I was just imagining this who knows. The band was warming up then the DJ started playing music and eveyone was singing along to it. I really loved hearing Cool being played by The Time. When the part came where you like spell out cool the DJ dimmed the music and eveyrone was singing it then she would put the music back in. The last song if not mistaken she played right before Prince came on was Lady Cab Driver the music just like slowed down like a record loosing power and,


Bam there he was dressed in white with a white hat on. I love how he like looks at the crowd but don't get overwhelmed. He just keeps his cool will smile or smirk and just rip it on the guitar. Sheila E was there to killing the timbales. It was a real treat hearing him do Beautiful Strange because he really tore it up with that guitar solo. I was like holy crap when he sustained a note that seemed to stay sustained for more than 30 secs then he ripped back into it. Amazing!!!! Another highlight for me is seeing him do Purple Rain, the song the infamous solo and the everyone singing along I can die happy now as strange as that sounds. there were about 8 songs played if I am not mistaken. They would take breaks, Prince would sing then Tamar did a little set. The last song he did was Lets Go Crazy well a short version of it that pretty much kicked straight to the guitar ending. Once he burned up the fretboard he took the guitar off with all confidence he had just knocked us on our butt's and handed it in the audience. Everyone like pushed forward to try and touch it. I caught an elbow to the back of the head but I was trying to touch it to so I didn't even care. The guitar tech then took the guitar and they started breaking down the equip.

Nice amps Prince has there Purple Mesa amps NICE!!!! Right before they started clearing the store someone that worked there got on the mic and was like "do you know what you just witnessed people that was over 20 years of music you just experienced there I can quit my job now."We had to clear the store then get
back in line outside to get the cd. Finally I had the cd in my hands, they were also giving out BLB, TC, or BS as giveaway singles. My knees were killing me from standing outside all that time then being on my tip toes for the show but it was all worth it. My boyfriend and I just sat there in the car freaking out playing it over and over in our minds. We then opened the cd's (no purple ticket in either cd). I have four more copies to buy so hopefully theres still a chance. I dropped my bf off at home and once again we sat there saying we just saw Prince we just saw Prince. I listened to the cd on my hour and half drive back home. Loving every cut thus far. All in all I am so glad I became a Prince fan. Even though it has not been long I have collected the cds from his first album up until this one. ( of course there are a few hard find fillers that I need to get) Prince rocks, the fans rock what more could a music lover ask for. Seeing Prince at just 22 I swear my generation is missing out on good music if they still listen to the crap that is on the radios now days. I'm off to two more stores to get more copies.

Happy Purple Day!!!

• Did you first think Prince was gay? •

Wendy: He’s a girl, for sure, but he’s not gay. He looked at me like a gay woman would look at another woman. Lisa: Totally. He’s like a fancy lesbian.

Yo dude. If its any consolation to you... Tower did not know Prince was going to perform until 6pm yesterday and it was not confrmed until then.

I asked one of the guys what happened, why did Universal put together such an unorganized event and he said that Prince had his people call to find out if it was doable. Once they looked over the place the deal was done.

It was announced on radio by 6pm.

I notice that Prince will play mostly rock stuff live, but his album is always more hip hop, radio friendly dance music. Odd.

I also think Snap owes the original poster an apology for saying they were a liar when they were telling the truth!
And to be fair to the NPGMC, what would the point be of Prince doing instore appearances if it was always full of hardcore fans from his fanclub, it wouldn't be promoting anything.


i was talkin about those who said it wasn't going to happen, including Tower Records staff themselves
and if NPGMC is going to keep sayin' that it ain't true 'til we hear it from them first, then i'm gonna keep on callin' 'em on it
