My husband I made it to two of the three. Was the first and last time I saw him play First Ave. Opened that set with a thumping 3121.

Went to Macy's and Target show. Being stuffed in the corner of the top of a department store cosmetic dept was interesting, but nonetheless amazing. The Target center was a really upbeat, happy return--danced from beginning to end. Loved this article disclosing he wanted to walk from one venue to another with his guitar, now that would have really topped the night off.

I was at the Target Center show! Missed Purple Rain while I was grabbing a beer, cause that was his opening song on a late start!

It was so good to see him with Wendy and Sheila E. on stage. I took my little borhter to the show. He loved it. Prince was going through JAM AFTER JAM that night.

When it was over I distinctly hearing a woman say, "That was the best cover of Whole Lotta Love I have ever heard!!"

Prince Tickets

Prince has just announced one show at the Target Center on 7/7/2007 @ 8:30. Based on the $130 face value of the Target Center Tickets, he is definitely proud of himself. I wouldn't get caught up in the early feeding frenzy because it wouldn't surprise me if he announces the addition of a show after the first show sells out. The main thing that Prince has going for him that allows him to charge that kind of $ is that he puts on a GOOD concert. No one ever feels cheated as they are walking out after a Prince show. It is nice to see the Target Center and not the Xcel Energy Center have this marquee concert.
