Prince sighting--First Avenue Fri night @ Gayngs late show

FYI, Gayngs is a local 'super group' composed of around two dozen members from local alternative bands.

from the Star Tribune:

I'd heard Prince was in attendance at Friday night's second of two Gayngs concerts at First Ave, but 90 percent of the time I hear that it's a bogus report (although it has been true more often of late).

Now comes word via the Gayngs bunch that not only did he show for the one-night-only performance by the regional all-star band, he actually showed up with guitar in hand.

"He jammed to the tunes side stage," reported manager Nate Vernon. "He wanted to play with us, but after watching for a while he told Conrad that we 'had it covered.' "

http://www.startribune.co...03077.html

Another write-up on the night here:
http://blogs.citypages.co...most_j.php

Update (5/18)--Now FIVE pictures up at this site, of Prince just offstage (nice purple lit profile shot and one of him on guitar looking like he's about to walk on stage...[somebody introduce him already!]),:
http://lol-omg-blog.blogspot.com/2010/05/prince-at-gayngs_16.html
==

Between this and his recent hop on stage at Bunker's before heading to NYC for the Time magazine concert, we need a local 'Purple Alert Squad' to give everybody the heads-up of any possible sightings or shows.

Hope he opens the Park and does some warm up rehearsals before his upcoming European shows.

How is that group's name pronounced?

Is it like "gangs," or "gay-nigs?" confuse

Yeah, I'm assuming it's the first one ("gangs"). It just HAS to be the first one.

Very cool. I always like better hearing stories like this than hearing about those invite-only celebrity parties he throws.

And is that Li'l Man without makeup? Don't see that everyday.

Nice pics. I have to say, I love the "natural" look on him. He looks older but still handsome. I've always had a thing for older men anyway lol.

He looks good! biggrin (and he really does look more and more like his dad...)

It's nice to see him showing up around Minneapolis, and especially at First Ave. He's been there now 2 or 3 times - that I know of, anyway - this year already.

Now, once again: please, Prince, have a Paisley Party. pray

Prince Almost Throws Down With Local Musicians
Posted in Celebrity News, Entertainment, Music on May 18th, 2010 by drfunkenberry
Wow. Funk legend Prince showed up in his hometown of Minneapolis last Friday night at First Avenue, where the best rock & roll movie of all time, “Purple Rain” was filmed and released almost 26 years ago.

A band of local musicians called GAYNGS was playing there and Prince was getting the itch to play. So much so, he brought his own guitar, but decided “They don’t need me” and did not take the stage.

Prince is still rocking the no-makeup look and it is nice to see the brother smile. We have been hearing he has been having a few good reasons to smile lately.
Check out the photos from that night HERE!!!!! http://lol-omg-blog.blogs...gs_16.html

He’s still rocking the heels right? Or are we getting some flat footed funk from the purple one?-Dr.FB

P.S. thanks to Douglas for the tip.
