PRINCE was officially announced to be playing SXSW by Samsung today as he will be playing their party in Austin, TX this Saturday night.

Anyone who follows DrFunkenberry on Twitter knew that we were hinting at this for the past couple of days, but Samsung had to make the announcement official.

Samsung chief marketing officer Todd Pendelton talked to Mashable.com and had this to say about PRINCE:

"Having Prince in Austin at his first SXSW show will truly be a one night only experience that our Samsung Galaxy owners and friends will remember for years to come,"

"Prince is a legend and true creative and musical genius who has been innovating and pushing the boundaries of music for over 35 years."

"Prince’s live shows are always phenomenal and I’m sure we’ll be in for some fun surprises on Saturday night."

This is a big year for PRINCE where he has appeared on the Grammys, on the cover of the new version of Billboard magazine, and will be receiving the Icon Award at the Billboard Awards May 19th.  He will also be performing 3 nights at the Montreux Jazz Festival and a few other festivals as well.-DocFB

  1. You’re not an idiot! You are very kind to share what you know. Thank you again. That would be perfect timing for me. I hope you feel better. Take care of yourself and get some rest. :-)

  2. Omg, I’m such an idiot! Yes! April 30-May 1. Serves me right for commenting in a fog while I had the flu this week. I hope you get to see a show! There’s nothing like it. I’ve been to tons and tons of concerts, and none of them compared to Prince.

  3. @ Anonymous….Thanks for the heads up May 30-April 1…..wouldn’t that be April 1-May 30? Could this be an April Fools ploy? LOL. I hope it’s closer to May. We have standardized testing the first few weeks in April here in AZ.

    My kids know about my love of Prince. I have a few items that are Prince related in the classroom. They don’t know who he is and would be upset with me if I bailed on them during testing.

    I’m taking my daughter to FOB in June. Bought the tickets in February. Now that is a time frame that is easier for us regular folks to work with. I like to be spontanous as much as the next guy, but I’m a grown up with grown up responsibilities. I have heard a Prince concert is an all night and into the next morning event. I need to plan for something like that….physically, mentally and financially.

    Thanks again

  4. yo i want to be in on the show tomorow hook me up plz

  5. @Michelle- rumor mill says he’s going to do a couple shows in Tempe AZ, May 30-April 1. Heads up if it helps. Like I said, it’s just a rumor, but I know how you feel when you say he gives regular folks no time to plan!

  6. I wish there was more time to figure out how to get to and pay for these concerts. I’m a school teacher who has never seen Prince, and I’m ready to go where I need to go! But I have responsibilities that are bigger than my love of Prince. Dang! I have thirty 11-12 year-olds counting on me. I live in AZ. Not a good place to have a concert in the summer unless you are used to the heat. Prince…….play somewhere on the west coast during the Summer (before school starts) months. I can make that work….Please

  7. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

  8. If this is a ‘Performance For The Ages’, as it should be, Prince will reaffirm his place among the Greats, and will gain countless new admirers.

  9. What is the privilege of being a Samsung Galaxy owner?

  10. My Princey, PLEASE design this performance to be specifically shot, shared, recorded and viralized. Give them bits/bites and legendary guitar face & solos :) Rip this to shreds, like you can do in your sleep and make every camera pointed at you bleed from the hotness. OK?

    <3

  11. Prince that close to me and i cant buy a ticket???

  12. Coolbeans, Prince!!! Must say would be cool to see footage from the concert. Love 2 Prince oxoxoxo and Thank You Docfb 4 sharing!!!

  13. Enjoy Urself, Austin!!!!

  14. Prince doesn’t sign autographs anymore. Hasn’t for at least 20 years. His JW religious beliefs preclude him from contributing to the worship of false idols. Sorry.

  15. Will Prince be performing in Washington,DC,Maryland or Virginia this year?
    If do, when & where? Is there a way to get in touch with him personally? If so, please let me know. I am trying to surprise a friend of mine bc he has 2 of his guitars & would like them signed by Prince himself. Could you please help me grant that wish.

    Thank you for your assistance.

  16. Gonna be hard to say “No Cell Phones or Photos” at this event :)

  17. Hope to see footage.

  18. will this be filmed and put up online?
