L.A. Weekly Names Prince’s Troubadour Show Concert Of The Year

L.A. Weekly has just come out with its best of list for 2011 and Prince is mentioned for number 1 show of the year.

Along with Prince’s Forum run, he did 3 shows at the House Of Blues and 2 shows at the Troubadour.

To see What L.A. Weekly had to say about Prince click HERE:

For twenty-one nights, Prince had Los Angeles music fans in a frenzy. The reason was his “21 Nite Stand” tour — a month long residency at the Forum in Inglewood during which fans could see the icon for as little as $10 a ticket.  But even twenty-one shows didn’t stop him from setting up a series of additional, secret performances around town. Easily the most talked-about of these was the Purple Genius’ second night at the Troubadour in WeHo. For those lucky enough to be inside the intimate space, Prince delivered an epic performance that included extended funk jams and three encores, and lasted until the wee hours. Oh yeah, and there was even a guitar vs. sax battle.

The $10 show was on April 28th at The Forum and was a one time only thing as most shows, the tickets were around $25.00 with no service charge.

Who wouldn’t want Prince setting up shop and performing for 21 nights in your town?  I was secretly wishing Prince was planning one more show at the Forum for New Years Eve because….well……selfish reasons I suppose.

In honor of Prince being named number 1 concert of the year and his 21 night run, we have a gift for you.  The rain came down for 17 + days in L.A. and we are forever grateful to Prince and the NPG for giving us that many shows…and making us lose some weight as we danced for 3+ hours every night.  We hope you enjoy this clip as it is funky.

With Prince and the latest NPG band member Andy Allo releasing new songs late in 2011, it looks like that we might be getting some new music from Prince and Andy in 2012.-DocFB

    The above photo wasn’t from the Troubadour show, it was Kevin Mazur’s photo from opening night of Prince’s 25-show run at the L.A. Forum.

    I am glad, Concert of the Year. I did’nt went to a concert of Prince this year, but I know he is worth it. Saw him in other years, last year in Rome etc. For me the concert in O2 in London in 2007, also 21 nights, that was the concert of the year for me !!! Congratulations ..

    You know, every time I start to think that maybe Prince has had his time. It has come and gone, I just have to hear a little gem like this to be reminded that he is still vital. He is still new. He is still amazing and ground-breaking, earth shattering, unstoppable. You name it. I love this man. Thank you god for this man. Thank you Prince, for your jams.

    Peace and be wild!

    Some people sing songs on stage. Others, like Prince, perform songs on stage.

    typo, making more sense; It was excellent the way they included Teena Marie’s “Lover Girl” into his song “17 Days” for remembering her.
