Prince Funks Up Montreux; Pop Culture

Prince @ Montreux July 18th, 2009

Prince @ Montreux July 18th, 2009 © 2009 DMY

Prince performed 2 shows at Montreux over the weekend as we told you first a while ago.  From what we have seen, it was a success.  Would we expect anything less from him?

He did 2 90 minute shows and a few songs twice. Rumor and rumor only has it right now that the songs were done twice for a possible DVD release.  Wait…what happened to that Coachella DVD?  Well, we will see. 

Prince performed classic tracks as well as new ones from his latest 3 CD set.  Heck, for good measure, he even did 2 songs off his protege’s CD.

Prince was also all over pop culture this week.  From a mention on “The Colbert Report” on Monday to 2 mentions on ESPN’s Espy Awards. Samuel L. Jackson even dressed up as Prince during the award show, circa the Purple Rain era with purple studded jacket and wearing those “I Would Die 4 U” pants.  Mr. Jackson. Whew. Later in the show, Quarterback superstar Peyton Manning pretended to have a conversation with Prince over the phone.

Even the Home Run Derby had a Princely moment with Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby with some music by, you guessed it, Prince playing. Not to mention every tacky sports journalist using a Prince metaphor on that night’s news cast.

Prince, the pop culture icon and the Montreux funk man, all in one.-Dr.FB

    Actually MKL, it did come from here first, maybe about 2-3 months ago.

    The underground Prince sites ganked it from here after it appeared here.

    Look for thread of new purple rumor….it’s from a while back.

    “as we told you first” you must be kidding…

    This ‘news’ was on other (underground prince fan) sites long before it appeared on this gossip wordpress blog.
