Prince Oscar After Show Report On It’s Way…

Prince Oscar After Show Report On It’s Way…

I am drained.  My ears sound like they are in an ocean tunnel.

I will give a much more detailed report later but right now if I did it, it would be half-assed.

Prince fooled everyone when the sounds of “Purple Rain” went off to start the show but went into the new groove of “Oldskoolcompany” (If I spelled it wrong, I am sure you will let me know.)

He played for about two hours or so.  Kicked it off at like 1:45 A.M. Covers and hits and the club really was Hollywood Swinging.

Listen, ET’s Kevin Frazier was there and got an exclusive look at what looked like a cell phone of that lotusflower/lotusflow3r.com cover. You might want to record ET tonight to see if it airs.  Kevin wasn’t knocking back too many drinks so he should have the report in on time.  I just kid Kev, but can the report be longer than 2 minutes this time?  Yeesh.

Let’s see, big shout out to my girl from KROQ, loved hearing the bathroom story first hand and your a sweetheart.  Much love to John and my new friend Anna.  Girl, you crazy!

Also, love how another blogger posted the party news as exclusive info. Bizitch please!  😉 Heard the security guys were asking how people heard of the show n you all were saying drfunkenberry.com and I appreciate it sooo much!  As soon as I heard KROQ was called, I called 100.3 and 92.3 to let others know of the show as well.

No celeb guest list right now as my brain is mush.  I think I just need a few hours of rest and I can give it a go.  Hope you guys liked the Oscar coverage too.  Talk soon and much love.-Dr.FB

    wow what a show
    i was scared when he came out all we were gonna get was the hits medley all night but. when he dropped purple rain and started the new groove of old school company wich has a sick bass line simmiler to days of wild and gotta say josh was playing what looked like a new bass guitar that was shapped like princes cloud guitar cora also had a new drum kit ithat had blinking lights all over itthis was a new vibe i knew we were in for something sweet. what we got was prince the live d.j the ulitmite party host were insted of dropping records he just played what he wanted to hear live.high points of the night for me included hearing him sing the bird and jungle love wow that was too cool shelby j dropped a new jam called brown skin that was too funky. the jimmy eat world cover was a billion times better then the original version and of course getting to sing play that funky music with him and seeing him having a great time watching me do it is a feeling no words can describe . thanks docfb for all the info and for making it known we could get in. and thanks to prince and the npg 4 letting the fans in and for putting on a amazing amazing eavning hope to do it all over again real soon

    Good Lawd!! Prince Looked Good!! Prince Looked Great!! Hell, Prince Looked Fantastic!!

    By the way .. there was plenty room for many more ppl to attend this event for those of you who inquired ..

    Let me tell you .. the show was incredible!! C.C. the female drummer was out of this world .. the new guy in his band (??) who’s on Harmonica just tore it up .. he was amazing!! And of course the female singers (Shelby and ??) .. took the stage for their own .. they were astounding .. (poor little Prince) ha ha ha ha ..

    .. for some reason, Prince did not want the lights blaring on him and he kept telling the light man to “Turn Down the Houselights” several times throughout the show. Too bad for the ppl in the back, I’m sure all they could see was his shadow.

    I still can’t get over how good this man looks .. at 50.

    I think he bumped his lip on the microphone at the beginning of the show because we heard a loud pop and saw him jump back suddenly from the mic .. he played it off real well though .. but maybe he needed those lights after all .. ha ha ha.

    He had on those shoes that glow/flash we he walks .. Cute.

    There was no sign of Bria ..

    Can’t believe I was there .. right up front .. so close, I could smell his cologne .. I could touch his feet. That was Sweet to be so close!! I swear , I will never be the same again!!

    ***Most Shocking Thing of the Nite for Me***

    I forgot how tiny/small this guy really is : 0 .. it kind of caught me off guard for a minute . . but then I got a hold of my senses again!! And I accepted it!! : )

    And lastly, I will pray that he continues to eat food and consume more it than usual .. because he is very thin .. Pls Lord help him!!

    Don’t think it was Green Day… of course I can’t remember the song cuz Minze Mind is FOGGY right now! LOL

    Well got home at 4:30 2 hours sleep and now i cant sleep anymo!
    Show was great…long wait to get in and got meet some really really great people(Angie, gabrella, Vince, Steve, Chris) after hours of waiting and another 2 hour delay we all got in between 11:30 and midnight…Prince took the stage with the funkiest intro oldschool jam that has the bass kicking giving me what i had been missing, the reason i came to the show. But from there the tone of the show switched over to more of a rock heavy show with little more funk as I had hoped for. Still a great show. (I know set list will be psted later). After a short second set Prince through down his guitar and walked off saying “too many hits Hollywood” and walked off the stage…Teh tech jump on stage and set up the next set, then the next set got cancelled….:( likely to smooze. Feet are killing but thanks to all the wonderfull new people i met…i hope Lotusflow3r brings us more oppertunies to meet up again……time for a nap…
