5 channel simulcast - what was it like?

Hey US fans (lucky sods) what was the show(s) like? What soongs were performed etc etc. Anybody video it and want to share it with a desperate UK fan starved of TV material wink
'I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now.' Mayte 21st April 2016 = the saddest quote I have ever read! RIP Prince and thanks for everything.

I watched 3 channels - MTV, VH1, and BET. For me MTV and VH1 show the exact same program - interview and all. I do have MTV2 and VH1 Classic, but they aired before I made it home. I like BET the best because the gentelman who did the interview was more relaxed and asked more questions. It did appear that everyone showed the same performaces - Musicology, Dear Mr Man the like. Kinda pissed me off because I wanted to see the whole show. From previous posters who attended the party, he did a full set. But with a half an hour of time, I knew that would not happen. The acoustic set was the best for me because he was interacting with the audiance. He asked the audiance if they wanted to know what was the first song he learned how to play on the guitar. It was the opening strum to "Proud Mary". HE said that was all he knew - just the opening. Then he said the second song he learned was what I thought sounded like the guitar rift from Kool and the Gangs "Hollywood Swinging". If I'm wrong, God knows someone out there will correct me. Then he went into "Sometime it Snows in Apirl". He asked them if they remembered it from highschool. His response was "this is what I remembered from high school and went in Rufus' "Sweet Thing". That turned into the ladies in the audiance singing and his playing. The most amusing part of the acustic set was when he was singing "Cream", he asked the audiance if they knew he was looking in the mirror when he wrote it. That cracked me up! Hopefully you all will get to see it. With MTV the monster that it is, I'm sure you will get it. cool
pray God bless everyone. NO exceptions. pray

I was under the impression it was "Skin Tight" by the Ohio Players, not "Hollywood Swingin'"


sorry...but I had to be the one to correct you. I had to because I suprised myself by knowing what the title of it was.

I watched it soley on MTV, and I was starving for me. He has truly evolved. One thing though that the reporters are saying that I do not like is that it's a comeback. TO WHAT?? he never left and went anywhere. I saw the concert 2 in 4/18 IT WAS AWESOME.
