PRINCE Accepts Fallon’s Ping Pong Challenge! New Album Update & More!


Jimmy Fallon threw down a challenge to Prince and we have learned Prince has accepted. Fallon revealed in an interview with Kristin Scott Thomas that the last time Prince was on “Late Night” they were to play ping pong but it never happened.

Both Prince and Jimmy Fallon have their people talking and the ping pong match WILL take place at an undisclosed location sometime VERY soon and the results will hit the Internet instantly after the contest.

Prince & 3rdEyeGirl will be heading over to Stockholm, Sweden to perform at the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival. For those attending, check out the NEW merch items! They are supposed to be: EVERYTHING! Let us know what you think and if there is anything special you would like to see for sale.

Prince & 3rdEyeGirl have been recording with JoshuaWorld and have 2 NEW songs that will probably be featured in upcoming concerts:

1 is entitled “FUNKNROLL!” which sounds like the Chili Peppers meet Onyx. The other is a cover of one of Prince’s favorite songs of the year, the Alice Smith joint “Another Love”. The original reminded Prince of some of his 80’s work with The Revolution.  The revamped version goes slower and WAY harder with a revved-up ending in the vein of Fleetwood Mac.

There is still NO release date or final song line-up for the Plectrum Electrum project. The list of song candidates change with every new joint recorded.  Having the FREEDOM to try out new material on tens of thousands of ears before it’s release is a luxury that is priceless. The women of 3rdEyeGirl are still talking about how the audience in Montreux shouted the hook to “FIXURLIFEUP” in unison.  It is very encouraging for a new band who get better with every performance and also challenging for Prince whose new music has been in sequestration from the radio since the 90’s.  We think Prince likes the freedom that underground music allows.

The 3rd show of Montreux, many have said was the best of the 3.  It was a lot less structured and more spontaneous than the big band.  We are curious and want to know what the Montreux concert-goers thought?

Make sure to tune in to tonight’s PRINCE spreecast with DrFunkenberry and Scott Seth Everett. You can watch the show HERE.-DocFB

Diagnosis: 2013 keeps on “FUNKNROLLIn” for Prince!

    […] We guess Fallon's proclamation that he would beat PRINCE's a** at Ping Pong were a little off. About 12 points off to be exact! As we told you exclusively this week, Prince accepted his challenge and they were setting it up. […]

    Went to all 3 Montreux shows. I very much liked the arrangements in the first show, showing what a genius Prince is (with his band), and the hornz were awesome at the first and second show! The third show was blowing our hair in all directions, what a gig, felt like I was at the Vegas gigs again. The sample set could be a bit shorter, and I do prefer Ida on bass instead of guitar. For me personally, all in all fab gigs.

    I have attended shows 2 and 3 in Montreux (couldn’t be there for show 1), so i was lucky enough to watch a “big band” show and the “funknroll” show. Both shows were great, but i had a particular feeling for the 3rd show and not only because Prince played guitar that night, but because it really seems there was more alchemy within the band. The sampler set was great and turned the Stravinsky auditorium into a night club with about 40 people dancing on stage and the whole venue got crazy too!

    I went to all 3 Montreux shows.
    Multi-instrumentalist Prince not picking up any instrument at all during 2 consecutive shows was a disappointment for many people, I can tell you.
    During the 1st Montreux show, Old Friends 4 Sale was my favorite.
    The 2nd Montreux show, however, was amongst the weakest Prince concerts I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen over 70 and counting.
    The 3rd Montreux show was amongst the best Prince concerts I’ve ever seen! The Breakdown was my brightest highlight of many highlights.

    I went to all three shows in Montreux and I also felt the 3rd was the best. For me this had everything to do with Prince not playing any guitar during the other two. Loved the horns but there was just something missing. Above all I liked the variety between the shows, setlist for the 1st was exciting, so having 2 different bands is definitely a great idea.
    Oh, and what didn’t help my enjoyment of the 2nd show was Prince starting 50 minutes late without even an apology. Kind of disrespectfull towards the audience I say.

    Prince will not lose at ping pong.

    I flew in from London for the 2nd and 3rd shows in Montreux and was hoping to see two totally different performances, which of course I did. I love Prince’s voice and thought that the 2nd show really highlighted his vocals. It was really funky which is always fine by me. I also loved the way Prince smiled a lot at all of his musicians/friends on stage who contributed flawlessly in my opinion. He was obviously very happy with how the show went and had good reason to be. The hours of practice he asks his ‘team’ to commit to certainly pays off, for them and Prince. But they have the knowledge that nobody works harder than Prince does and the respect is evident.

    Now the 3rd show. Wow! You could feel the charge from the audience before Prince and 3rdeyegirl took to the stage. We were ready. And of course Prince and the band responded immediately. 3rdeyegirl can play. I mean, Donna Grantis, how great will she get? I feel Prince would have stayed till dawn if everyone could keep up with him. At one time he was last to leave the stage (I had lost count of encores at this stage) and he stood near the exit gesturing to his horn section as if he had an instrument in his hands, asking them if they wanted to play. Yes! Prince then went on piano, Larry Graham joined in on bass, people were invited to dance on stage (me included) and a party started.

    I had a blast at both shows but for me, the 3rd show was the best.


    P.S Sincere thanks DrFunkenberry for all your news and heads up on Twitter about forthcoming Prince events in particular. You have often helped me to get tickets to these incredible occasions through your communications, which I might otherwise have missed. True source.
