I was at the show last night, Prince went on at about 917pm, after song number 1 he turned to the left side VIP section and asked "does anyone know this song? um you lady you want to come on stage and sing it." And no *%#@ it was Gwen, no freaking way Song #2 of the set, and it got even crazier, Sheila E did multiple songs, Gwen came back on and danced on a song. Prince said goodbye at like 1045pm, of course he came back with entire Band, then said good bye again at like 1115pm, and then came back on stage solo and sat at the piano which was like a large MP3 player and he proceed to play old school hits and just chit chat with the crowd, which was about half the crowd as most folks really thought show was over, the house lights were even on, then at 1140pm, he freaking came back on with entire band, house lights on, shut it down with amazing song, and invited entire VIP section on stage and they danced the night away, Gwen, Gavin, Kirsty Alley, Max the dancer guy, and all the freaking VIP's who were in Gwens section, the is 100% real, and Prince said this, you think this was cool, come back next week lets see what happens, I am going again I am not even a big Prince fan, but this was a EPIC show, and if you dont believe me ask anyone you know who was at the Show on April 30th 2011, I walked in the Forum at 830pm and walked out at 12am on May 1st, Great show and I actually want to go back next Saturday to see who comes on stage! Smart move Prince, I didnt know about the Forum facebook and was happily suprised! check us out and LIKE us on facebook ====> got2tix.com
So is this a marketing ploy by The Forum? The forum posted on it's Facebook Fan Page yesterday that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt will be performing with Prince Friday or Saturday night. Well, Friday passed and..no Gwen. So that would mean....tonight, right?
Tonight will be the 7th night of Prince's record-breaking 21 Nights In Los Angeles run at the Forum.
What we can tell you is that Gwen rehearsed with Prince and the NPG at the Forum almost 2 weeks ago for several hours, so it is supposed to go down and was planned.
An unreliable blogger who shall go nameless reported that Prince and Gwen were performing that night when actually it was just a rehearsal.
We have a feeling it will NOT be the Prince and No Doubt songs in existence but actually one of Gwen's all time favorite songs by the Purple One..and perhaps a few more guest spots.
So far, Prince has had Ledisi, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, Chaka Khan, Sheila E., and Alicia Keys take part as his special guests either as an opening act or a surprise performer.
I am not going to lie, I would LOVE to see Prince and Gwen perform. Will it happen?
Follow us on Twitter tonight as we will be LIVE tweeting from show n will let you know if Gwen plays: Twitter.com/Drfunkenberry -Dr.FB
