Hi Aaron,

Jenny Morris was an opening act on the Nude tour, another Australian band that opened on the Aussie D&P tour was Aboriginal band Yothu Yindi, but were relagated to the foyer.

Lois Lane on the Nude Tour (Belgium and Holland).
In '93 I saw some local French group in Paris (no idea who they were) and The N.P.G. opened in Belgium with most songs from the Gold Nigga album.

Oddly enough I find her to be one of the smartest proteges.
She knows what she's not (a singer or serious actress) and knows what she sells extremely well (tits, ass, and the occasional comic-relief) and has made a pretty lasting career of it.

During Musicology tour in OR-some WB female artist opened. Don't remember her name-but nobody here has mentioned her. I just remember that was the most bombed audience at a Prince concert I have ever witnessed. Normally Prince crowds are cool and laid back, but not that drunk crowd. Fist fights and other outrageous behavior.
99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

confuse

I wouldn't class Amy as an opening act. She sang one song and P was on stage with her.
Some people are like Slinkies...

They're good for nothing but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
