PRINCE HEADLINING COACHELLA FESTIVAL!

From Billboard.com

Prince will make what is believed to be his first festival appearance ever at Coachella later this month. Organizers confirmed today that the artist will headline the Saturday (April 26) lineup, joining previously announced headliners Jack Johnson (April 25) and Roger Waters (April 27).

That's quite a surprise. I like the image they're using, too (which is an abstract painting Prince has on his wall, I believe):



Also, this is cool:

I already have tickets! HOWEVER, Prince would be wise to change up the current set-list and lose the pimp suits, the horns, Larry G., etc -- I LOVE the man but I doubt any of the recent Prince material will interest the Coachella set.

PRINCE
ADDED AS SATURDAY HEADLINER FOR 2008
COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL




Prince has joined this year's line-up for the ninth COACHELLA VALLEY MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA (Friday, April 25, Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27) as the headliner for the second night of the critically acclaimed festival.

The Purple One to play Coachella
April 9, 2008 9:47am
http://theguide.latimes.c...coachella/

Coachella just got a royal infusion of talent: Prince is coming 2 the desert.

After weeks of rumors, promoters of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival announced today that they have indeed inked a deal that will add Prince to the lineup of the massive three-day show in Indio, which kicks off April 25.

The Purple One, who will perform April 26, brings major star power to a lineup that some fans had criticized as a lower-wattage affair than in years past. The lineup for this year includes Roger Waters, Jack Johnson, Portishead, the Raconteurs, the Verve, Death Cab for Cutie, Love and Rockets and Kraftwerk.

The Grammy Award winner behind such classics as “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “1999” and “Raspberry Beret” adds to Coachella’s history of off-the-wall bookings, such as the decision to bring Madonna to the festival’s dance tent in 2006 and Pink Floyd auteur Waters to the main stage this year.

The 49-year-old musical chameleon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, the same year he released “Musicology,” a resurgent album in his long and influential career. He followed that up with “3121,” the first album of his to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Ticket information is at www.coachella.com

The only problem with the online live link up is that u.s.a is 8 hours behind england, so if prince comes on stage at say, 8pm (a guess), in england thatll be about 4 am!! lol

The Picasso-style graphics is one of the best official Prince graphics I have ever seen!!!! Cool to finally see it in decent quality. Talk about a new project?

Would P risk the reception by pimping his brand new joint?
Perhaps, but I'd be surprised.

I hope that Coachella puts their foot down and tell him to "fuck himself" if he tries that. I will be hopeful that he doesn't pull that crap with them. pray

No, come as you are Prince! They know who he is. If they don't want the full Prince experence, they shouldn't come. He or any other artist should not have to change who they are. I can understand a little tweaking here and there for your audience, but no major changes. Prince should be Prince and rock the house or desert anyway.

Oh puhlease!!!!

Prince is Prince... if they don't know that, they better just sit that night out. He is far too set in his ways to change for anyone.

U go Prince! Rock ur funky ass off! Pimp Suit and all!

Since he's doing an outdoor show in Southern CA, let's have him bring out the setlist he opened up 4 the Stones with

Bambi
When U Were Mine
Jack U Off
Uptown
Why U Wanna Treat Me So Bad

Wouldn't that be something, LOL
