We saw saw all the commotion outside the Sony centre, then later ran into some folks that saw it at the flatiron. They were like pretty much the happiest people on the planet.RIP. Definitely sad news, especially because I really wanted to see him when he played 2 shows here last month on Good Friday (March 25). Unfortunately, I didn't go because I was bitching in the "Nobody Cares" thread his ticket prices were too expensive.
I've seen lots of concerts in my life. However, I regret to say I haven't seen the "two greats" Michael Jackson and Prince live in a concert.
Favorite Prince song that I often sing when I think nobody is around is "Raspberry Beret". LOL
Probably the closest these 2 iconic music legends Michael Jackson and Prince came to sharing a stage was back in 1983.
There is like a vault of music sheets from his father's work and his.There's going to be a TON of stuff that's going finally get a release (I hope). Stories of tons of albums, music videos and all kinds of stuff that he never put out.
Prince would approve of this anecdote. Stratford, Strippers, 8-ball and yoghurt beverages? All that's missing is her telling you she's the understudy for Lady MacBethStrippers everywhere will mount the pole at half mast this weekend in tribute. With the exception of some 1990's-era hair bands no other artist has contributed so much to the exotic dancing community.
Just about any Prince song is appropriate for a three song set, but one trio in particular comes to mind in my own memory.
Years ago my brother and I were at Stratford to take in some plays with our parents, and afterward on Saturday night we decided to visit the Empress Room, which was at the time still located in the centre of town. It was a dive bar's dive bar, very small, with a craptacular three-seat bar rail and an eight-foot square stage, no DJ just a boom box hooked up to the PA and dancers had to put their own cassette in the box before they went on stage.
There was a pool table too so my brother and took our beers and started racking up a game. Then this girl declares the table is hers and we have to beat her to take it over. Alright so we put our quarters in and she wins the break. So she brakes massively and then proceeds to sink all eight balls one by one. We're standing there gobsmacked and she says, "you can have the table, I have to go to work." ...and then hops up on the stage and puts her cassette in...
Her three song set: Sexy MF, Cream and her blanket number was Diamonds and Pearls.
The big finale came as she was writhing around on her blanket, naked... She pushes away the blanket and produces a bottle of Yop, which she proceeds to pour down her back as the song comes to a close. If I gave you diamonds and pearls...
Goddamn Prince you will be missed. So purple. So cool. RIP
That was incredible. Thanks.Prince’s First Ever Performance of Purple Rain in 1983 is Everything…and more | Indie88
the crowd had no idea how fucking big that song would become.
Decent play list but looks like a few Friday nights at my place. I'd be tossing in some Joe Texas, and Abba.Prince's taste in music was vast to say the least.
Cool story from New Girl's editor.
Good thing they didn't go $7.00.
Feel very ripped off because I paid $12 to see "Purple Rain" on the big screen for the first time last Saturday at the Bloor Cinema. I've seen the movie enough times on TV, but missed it when it came out in the theatre in 1984. Anyway, the 10pm show was completely sold out so the theatre added a second show at 12:45am. I caught the later one which was only half full.
