PRINCE kicked off his “Welcome 2 Chicago” shows with Questlove and George Lopez getting shout outs.
One person who most likely did not want to get a shout out at an NPG show; the person in charge of the house sound.
I got several tweets about the sound at the United Center and this was expressed to me;
“Prince’s management would like to apologize for any discrepancies in the quality of the sound last night.
Personnel changes were made after the concert hence the long delay after the show. (Equipment was set up very late at the House Of Blues Afterjam because of this. Andy Allo took the stage at 3 a.m. and the police were shutting down the venue around 3:30 before Prince & The NPG could perform.) Everyone could tell Prince & The NPG were ready to give 150%, They are feverishly working on Prince’s clone as well to give 150%.
Prince LOVES all his fans in Chicago and will do whatever is necessary to bring the best possible experience.”
Wow. I would not want to be around Prince right now. That totally SUCKS for those in attendance at both shows! I will be surprised if these next 2 shows and afterjams do not kick some major tail.-DocFB
