21 NIGHTS update!!!


















Product Description
21 Nights -- a first book by Prince and celebrated photographer Randee St. Nicholas is a stunning multimedia volume offering a rare glimpse into the life, lyrics and mystique of one of the most notable and prolific musicians of our time. This beautifully designed photographic essay flows from Prince's sensational, unprecedented, record-breaking, sold-out 21 concerts in 21 Nights at London's 02 Arena in 2007. Giving insight into his dueling worlds of performance and solitude, 21 Nights incorporates Prince's evocative poetry and lyrics to new songs and other selections, and 124 full-color, sumptuous never-before-published images by Randee St. Nicholas. As part of the multi-dimensional experience, it will also include "Indigo Night," a CD--available only with the book--capturing Prince's after-hours, live after-show sessions--rare and profound moments of musical genius.

21 Nights takes the reader from the passenger seat of a limousine zipping through the streets of London to his sleeping quarters in a luxury hotel. In between we see him and his phenomenal band of musicians, singers and dancers backstage in the make up room to onstage, bathed in purple lights and a fog of gray smoke. Like a movie-in-a-book, readers are taken on his journey from London to Prague, in a style that takes glam rock to a new level.

Then there is poetry and lyrics that reveal the heart and soul of Prince--in addition to his incomparable talent. Going beyond the catchy hook, he expresses himself on everything from the destructive forces of war, greed and superficiality the life giving energy of love, beauty, and--of course--music.

Very cool. cool thumbs up!
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

anyone else more keen on the poems / lyrics than anything else?. The pics and musics I got plenty of but some clues about his heart and mind are always far more welcome. Can't wait for this release.

I find it highly disappointing that there will be no DVD release of any of the 21 nights, and to be honest, cannot work up much excitment about a book of pictures.
I told a joke about the woman, who asked her lover "why is your organ so small?" he replied "I didn't know, I was playing in a cathedral"

i guess it follows the 'this concert is for your memories' philosophy. Shame that the bootleggers already have some great gigs from the 21 shows out there already. I think P would have sold many copies had he done it in time for last X'Mas.

I have to agree, however, I do still have the book on order from Amazon UK, and have just looked at my order again,and am pleased to see the price has gone down to £18.99 (I can't actually remember how much it was originally, but it was definitely higher), and that it is still due for despatch here on 3 September, but, oh, oh for some DVD footage of those fun filled, sing-along nights!!!

Hmmmm, well this good be good or really bad.

I am more curious about the poems, lyrics, what Prince has to say and think.

The CD will be nice.

Maybe all of this is learning lesson for Prince. I remember hearing Prince learning how to be a photographer. Maybe Prince will from time to time release his own collections of photos in book form.

Bono is a painter, John Cougar Mellencamp has been working on a musical with Stephen King, Madonna has acted on Broadway and in the movies. Maybe in 5 to 10 years time Prince will also be known for his photography.

It is quite exciting to see how he is still continuing to evolve as an artist.

If his face were anymore airbrushed, he'd be invisible.
Those images are terrifically boring. Give me a live concert DVD!

MMMMM...I really hope there is actually words from Prince in this book and not JUST pictures. I don't mean to be a spoilsport and the book looks very nice, But I would really like a "glimpse" into what he's thinking..even if it is just about the tour.

eek I'm just wondering why he waited a year after the tour to put this out. It would have been more marketable when the hype was still going after this tour and could have put this out last fall/winter.
Hope it's worth the wait and does well?

Those pics were months ago on Randee St. Nicholas' website. No one knows if these will appear in the book. Only the pic of Prince and the car is sure because that one is on the publisher's website.
The pic of the Prince pillow won't be in the book for sure. (I think it was made by a fan who bought the pillow last year in London) smile

(All these pics have been posted on the org before.)

pics of him in the wild with the twinz is boring ..backstage preperations and onstage pics r better suited
man, he has such an amazing body of music that it's sad to see him constrict it down to the basics. he's too talented for the lineup he's doing. estelle 81

The last time Prince put out a DVD people hated the film that was used or somet hing technical about it.

Maybe P should stick to pics and music for now.

Sure they can post them. But I think the thread title is a bit misleading since no one knows if these will be in '21 Nights' biggrin
