Prince is doing shows 8, 9, and 10 of his 21 Nights In Los Angeles run this weekend and will be having Grammy Winner Esperanza Spalding opening up for him this Friday & Saturday. 

Also, Janelle Monae will be opening for him next Friday, May 13th.  Never has a Friday The 13th been so funky!

So far, Prince has had Gwen Stefani, Nikka Costa, Chaka Khan, Cassandra Wilson, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, and Sheila E. guest with him.  The list is only going to get bigger and greater.  We hear Stevie Wonder will be a guest, maybe appearing as early as this weekend.

You can purchase tickets to this weekend's show at Ticketmaster.com.

The shows have been a testament to Prince's music as no set has been exactly the same in the run, even including a cover of Roxy Music's "More Than This" to close out his show on Thursday.  Prince even did rarities "17 Days" and "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" along with fan favorities such as "When Doves Cry", "Moutains", and "Little Red Corvette" and last Friday, he dropped the new song "Gingerbread Man" on L.A., a song he has only played once before.

Face it, Inglewood is the place to be this weekend.-Dr.FB

  1. Chocolatte, I Am also looking for that song… I can not seem to find the answer ANYWHERE!!!!

  2. does anyone know the name of the song he sang last night where he was saying you will be with me? or close to that, I NEED IT!!

  3. The something good u can tell me is any of these performances ur bringing home soon! Even if it’s just @ the Park or The Ave I prefer smaller venues anyway but whateves! We’ve just had such a loooong winter!! we really need a some lovin 2:(


  5. Instant smile inducing photos, I hope we get to tip on the tightrope or “i love u baby nothin will take me away” either one would be so awesome to bring 2 home shows. Prince has the best taste in everything, but mostly in women and music and in women in music.
    R u ready Freddy here comes Ginger heehee

  6. Who cares about other celebrities, when you have Prince! All we want is Prince to come play for us midwest fans. Why do the celebrity cities and folks with deep pockets get to see all his shows and the fans that have been supporting his carreer from the jump don’t get jack. Maybe he will prove me wrong? I hope so. At least he did the Carolinas but charged them twice what he is charging in la. Those people have it tough in this economy. He got it backwards sometimes.

  7. oh yes, I agree … Inglewood is the best place on earth for as long as Prince plays the Forum! I wish I could be there, but I am enjoying all the reviews and photos and video clips that show up somewhere! Thanks for the updates!!! Great photos – Prince looks so fantastic!!!
