Inside Prince’s Brussels Aftershow – Photos!

brussels1

 "Straight from the heart of Minnesota, here comes the Purple Yoda."

As we were fortunate enough to pass onto you, Prince played an after show in Belgium over the weekend in the city of Brussels.

There was first an hour set by bass legend Larry Graham (surprised he was jamming that late) and then Prince took the stage with his own band and jammed for another hour.

We heard Prince played a new song from his 20Ten CD entitled "Future Soul Song" and that must sound great live.  Errr....not like I would know what the song sounds like yet or anything.  Ahem.  It's like my Internet connection is dead or something. 

Prince wore a t-shirt over a dressy hoody and jammed on his signature guitar, the Hohner.  Check out the EXCLUSIVE  photos above.....for now.  Although we were not there, we want to thank Prince and his peeps for passing the word onto us.

Prince looks GREAT in the photos and playful.  There are rumors of an aftershow in Vienna but nothing has been announced officially.  If we get word, we will pass it on.

And to those of you in France, we got word that 20Ten will be available July 22nd through Courier International-Dr.FB

Thanks to CKOneParis for the photos.

  1. Have you ever thought about adding videos for your weblog articles to keep the readers more entertained? What i’m saying is I just went through the entire page and it was very good but since I’m alot more of a visual learner, I found that way to be significantly more helpful. well, let me know what you think.

  2. Thank you 4 this post. We went to the Arras concert (North of France) and it was über great – as usual – but no aftershow (as far as I know).
    We are heading down to Nice (French Riviera) on the 25 of July. I count on you to let us know were the aftershow will take place :-) !! It’s the las date of the European tour so far, so we are expecting an after !!

    And thank you for this site !

    xxx from Paris

    Both very cool. But Fink wins everytime. ;)

    Thanks alot, Doc.

  8. Hey, Bria was at this aftershow party. Got someone taken pictures? I heard she looks like Mayte know.

  9. The aftershow was amazing, we all went crazy! it was so nice having an aftershow in my home country! prince proved (once again) to belgium that he is the only man that can do things like this, this good!

    But he sees everything, so did he see the pictures and it was funny hearing him say: “stop taking those pictures, i’m so bored of them” and still he smiled and played an amazing set!

    Yeah, Prince made my weekend perfect, first front row Arras, then front row Werchter and then 2nd row in the aftershow in Brussels, couldn’t be more perfect!

  10. amazing pics thanx 4 sharing

  11. I would like to note a correction to what Dr. Funkenberry has reported. Larry Graham did not do a one hour set and then Prince come on stage with his band later. Prince was on stage the entire time playing with Larry’s group but he had his hood up, glasses on, and back to the audience — and most people in the audience did not realize he was there until he came more toward the front area of the stage toward the end of Larry’s set. Then Prince’s band members started coming on stage and joining in with Larry’s band.

  12. SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET THANX DOC!!!
    UR MY FAVORITE DOC IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD ;0X

  13. Love it!!! You are on point, Doc F!!

  14. Wow he looks Fly !!!

  15. damn man i did not know that it was so easy to find and get in the aftershow! nevertheless the day after prince in werchter i drove to north sea jazz to see stevie wonder. and damn (s)he was lovely!
    next time prince is in belgium i promisse to be at the aftershow!

  16. Doc…thanks U so much! Brussels, U guys r too lucky!!!!

  17. Great pics !!! I went to Werchter but unfortunately I didn’t stay connected so I missed out the aftershow only 30 km from my place !!!! By the way I really like purple pants .. : D

  18. I dig the underground outfit :) Cool pics. I wish I’d skipped the concert and gone to this gig instead. I can’t imagine how fans, after a concert, go to a club, hang around for 3-4 hours just to wait for Prince to pitch. I could do it, but definitely not with a concert before that. Guess I am just not that fanatic. :)
    But the atmosphere in there looks like the kind of place, where I’d like to see Prince one day. Pity he dosn’t live in Europe, coz then they’d be easier to attend. By the time he’s back in France I’ll be leaving for vacation. So well.. I suppose next time.

  19. I was there. Thanx for the pix. Best version of Cream played ever as well.

  20. Those pics are great! I so wish that he would do another show here in NYC like that. I also hope that 20ten will be released in the States. I want to show him my support by buying this CD in a store.

  21. Prince also said “Please stop taking pictures, I’m so bored with it”
    I hope publishing these will not implicate your ability to predict the next aftershow.

    The fun thing about the Future Soul Song performance was that he made the audience sing the whole chorus first (including the woo-hoo-hoo) and only kicked into verse when that was under control. I had not even heard the song before the aftershow (wanted to save myself for proper audio equipment).

    The concert was great, especially because the venue was very intimate. The set where both Larry’s band and Prince’s band were playing at the same time (4x keys, 2x bass, 2x guitar and a lot of singing) was awesome.

  22. thanks for posting doc.
    I cannot wait to hear the album.
    20Ten..

  23. Thanks, Doc. :)
