Two Prince concert's annouced for France 11/10/09 (Updated with new info)

http://news.yahoo.com/s/a...1007164306

PARIS (AFP) – US rock star Prince has decided to give two concerts Sunday at a landmark Paris building he visited and liked this week, the glass-and-iron Grand Palais exhibition hall, producers said Wednesday.

Prince, who was already mulling a concert in Paris, on Tuesday attended Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel catwalk show at the exhibition hall on the banks of the Seine and "liked the venue", officials at the Grand Palais told AFP.

Titled "All Day/All Night" the concerts are to be held at 5 p.m. (1500 GMT) and 10 p.m. (2000 GMT) with prices and booking details to be announced later.

The rock star return to visit the spectacular glass and cast iron vaults of the Grand Palais hall on Wednesday with a production team and "is very enthusiastic about the concerts," the source added.

The Grand Palais can seat up to 6,000 people but the number of tickets available will depend on the format of the performance.

Start fawning over Prince in your twitter accounts folks. Someone's going to have to post up the clips from these shows.
Studies have shown the ass crack of the average Prince fan to be abnormally large. This explains the ease and frequency of their panties bunching up in it.

I welcome the concerts but realistically for those of us now with other responsibilities (family, work etc etc) and who have to make arrangements how viable is it to have 3 days notice to arrange flights hotels etc etc.

I would love to go and will try my hardest to do so but it is getting more and more difficult by the day (unless you live within the vicinity that he is playing at) to see prince live.

Still I am happy for all the people that will get the chance to see him.

Oh well will wait and see when this is officially confirmed and then start trying to make plans

Prince Is Bringing Purple Back

It’s a bird, it’s a plane….it’s Prince? The guy can play every instrument known to man, so why can’t he fly? I mean I have seen a photo where it looks like he can levitate. With this Superman-like type pose, I am not going to put it past him.

Prince attended the Fendi show today in Paris, showing off some skin to show you he still has it.

The purple jacket looked a little big on our man but pulling that Superman look, that may have been the idea.

We have been seeing a lot of the purple one and hearing a lot as well. Also, hearing a lot of rumors about shows and I think that will happening for a while.

I still do not have confirmation on anything happening this weekend but if it does, I will let you know. I wish I could party with you all if it does happen, but who will run the site?

The local news in L.A. has been kicking off the entertainment reports with Prince attending the Chanel Fashion Show yesterday.

On that note, enjoy the one n only purple one, um, wearing purple.-Dr.FB

By the time we know if this is going to go ahead (if the tickets are actually going on sale tomorrow) we'll only have 3 days to organise flights, accommodation etc. I'm very happy for anyone living in Paris who can get to see this but I was soooo looking forward to this and won't be able to go because of such short notice cry

What is the crowd capacity at this venue for a show? Did someone say 4000!! I know he aint played in Paris since 1998 but no scratch that thought. It's absolutely because he hasn't played there in 11 years that despite the short notice the tickets will go very very fast!
