EXCLUSIVE Photos: Prince Rocks New York’s Madison Square Garden

Prince once again rocked Madison Square Garden last night with the fourth of his Welcome 2 America shows. These exclusive photos landed in our inbox just now – thanks to the purple one for sharing them. Hot, no?

Last night’s openers were ol’ skool band Mint Condition and the funkified Janelle Monae (who also joined Prince on stage for “If I Was Your Girlfriend” during his set). Rolling Stone had this to say about Prince’s high-energy, hit-packed, sold-out show: “Such is the power of Prince: With songs as funky and fresh as that, the party doesn’t ever stop.” (full RS review here).

Were you at the show? Was it as funky as these pics??? -Dr.FB

    The show on 12/29/10 at MSG was “off the hook”. Prince blew the MSG audience away, especially with his rendition of “Question of U”. Totally awesome…and then some!!!!!!

    Great show indeed. My $50 seats were excellent too! I wonder why “welcome 2 america ” was notplayed. Too realistic for the casual Purple Rain fan I guess?

    Ordinary words just do not capture the essence of Prince. smh
    So, thanks for the photos which certainly help to draw the picture.

    BTW = Ida Nielsen’s attire is absolutely gorgeous.

    I hate I missed this show…Prince looks amazing. So gorgeous and sexy, full of energy, and vocals were amazing. So glad you posted these. Wish I could have been there. I hear the ? of U was awesome with the Gingerbread Man implented. And Little Red Corvette, Do Me Baby, and I Wanna Be Your Lover…amazing!
