Prince Will Be Performing 2 Shows At The Montreux Jazz Festival


Prince Performing Earlier This Year. Photo:

The Montreux Jazz Festival is going to be a little bit more funky this year as a musical genius is planning on taking the stage not once, but twice.

The one and only Prince WILL be performing 2 shows at Montreux this year and he is  bringing a musically talented band with him. Playing with Prince at the legendary festival will be Rhonda Smith, Renato Neto, and John Blackwell.

In his 31 years in music, Prince has won every award imaginable from a Grammy to an Oscar to one of the youngest inductees ever into the Rock & Roll  Hall Of Fame. He performed at the 2007 Super Bowl in the rain no less and still gave off the performance of a lifetime.

In 2007, Prince gave a legendary performance at The Montreux Jazz Festival where tickets sold out in record time. So when ticket information and tickets become available this time, make sure to reserve your spot if you plan to attend.-Dr.FB

    Prince has been awfully quiet about Michael Jackson’s death.?? Does his spirituality prevents him from any tribute to MJ?? He has not said anything to anyone/media (I know that he is a very private person) I would have thought since they are from the same era of music that he would have at least pay homage (public)to MJ to day the memerial service what gives??? Maybe he is doing his onw respects/grieveing in his own way!! I bet MJ would have paid a homeage to him if it was him????????

    Very curious!!!
