Went to the first Brisbane show and second Sydney show and didn't get Mountains.. which is OK because I got introduced to the beautiful Empty Room instead which was EPIC. I even got half a line of darling nikki. But I'm thinking of buying a ticket to the second Brisbane show to try and hear gold and mountains that have been played in Sydney and Melbourne shows... please Prince! LOVED the little bit of Nasty Girls and I'm going to support the wild cards of 17 days, black sweat and elephants and flowers. When doves cry was incredible... please release the longest dvd collection known to man of this welcome 2 tour with as many songs as you can convince them to release... you know we'd buy it.

Condition of the Heart Please. I've been to each Australian tour, one each decade for each decade of my life thus far. I'll be making my second show for this tour, the third Sydney show on 22 May, sitting 2nd row of the Purple Reserve. If this one song could be played, words could not express my thanks. And just to be cheeky, in case you really are reading these suggestions, then 17 Days would also be amazing! Always, Lula

Man, what I would do to hear him sing 'Gigolos Get Lonely Too'. I just love Prince, for 29 years. I've been singing 'Love Thy Will Be Done' all night, dude has me singing folks he wrote for songs LMAO!

The Twins are still dancing with him? I have to admit, I was hoping he nixed them and brought in Misty Copeland. Never really been into the Twinz dancing style, much prefer Cat, Diamond & Pearl, Mayte and of course Prince himself :)

First of all, THANK YOU FOR EMPLOYING GREAT BACK-UPS!!!!!!!!!!! They used to be a staple with live music, now they're goddamn instinct not that everyone thinks they a damn singer. With THAT said and done, He would start off with the accapella 'For You', take it back to the root. So many I wanna hear, if I could get tonnes from the first 3 albums I'd be ecstatic but that won't happen, so, um: Crazy U Soft & Wet Sexy Dancer When We're Dancing Close & Slow It's Gonna Be Lonely I Wanna Be Your Lover Dirty Mind Head Sister Lady Cab Driver Little Red Corvette Around The World In A Day Pop Life I Wish U Heaven Darling Nikki 17 Days She's Always In My Hair Erotic City Nasty Girl Fuck it, just give me all of it, lol. But I want, I NEED a slow jam set from THE master of slow jams. Do Me Baby, Insatiable, Adore, Scandalous. I Hate U, love his ballads from RAVE. Just give me Prince, I'll take it as long as you wanna give it!!!!
