  1. Great for ShelbyJ and Liv and the NPG. The show will be fantastic.

  2. Can we please just have Prince back?

  3. YAWN. We want to see Prince. Thank you.

  4. Poor Prince fans can stay at home. We, the rich people, at least can pay 350 dollars per night to hear Shelby only.

    12 hours of Shelby J. (6 shows x 2 hours ;)) just for the coolest people of NYC.

    Less than 800 dollars for the global experience, ain’t that cool !? 2013 IS Big.

  5. Way over priced!

  6. Prince should stop promoting these artist. They are not worth these price for tickets.

  7. This is disappoiting news for NY fans. Nothing wrong with Shelby, Liv and the hornz but Prince appears maybe on one night? Pfffft.

  8. You NYC fans are so lucky!! Wish I could go but I’ll be out of town that week, plus I already have tickets to see 3 former backing singers for one of Bruce Springsteen’s touring band from the Tunnel Of Love tour & it wasn’t easy but I also scored tix to see 2/5’s of Mick Jagger’s touring band from the Wandering Spirit tour, have fun guys!! And for all the haters Im glad you’re staying at home and not going! Make room for those that WANT to be there, there are plenty who would love to spend their hard earned $350 for the pleasure to hear such a talented band!

  9. Oh lord what a terrible idea. Shelby is bad enough with her bloody chants as backup to prince . Imagine 2 hours of it. The future is 3rd eye Girl, not bloated npg Homs and lame backing singers.

  10. Shelby and Liv (my favorite background singers of all time!) live on stage for 6 shows without Prince (maybe he will come one night ;). That’s the dream of a lifetime !!! And for tickets between 75 and 350 dollars only ! Can’t wait !!!!

  11. Shelby J and Liv Warfield shows ?

    350 dollars ?

    It suuuuure worth it !

    Hey Prince, do we look that dumb and silly to you ?

    Oh I’ve forgot, maybe you’ll come to play two or three notes at the show, like you did at the aftershow party in Montreux. “Featuring Larry Graham”… You.know for sure about CONtractuel obligations)..

    We must really be a bunch of fucking morons to you.

    But you’re right, we’re plain stupid and what we should do is just put our job fees right on your bank account.

    Each month.

    Automatically.

    And you don’t have to play or sing any single note anymore.

    Btw I’ve already seen Prince 42 times between 1988 and 2013 (Ooops it doesn’t count, by the time it wasn’t Shelby top dollars shows..!)

  12. Thank you so much for bringing the Shelby J, Liv Warfield & The NPG Hornz to NYC!!! And at the very affordable price of $75-$350 that’s a steal!! They’re practically giving tickets away! Prince doesn’t even need to show up, because I could listen to them sing other peoples classics all night long from Misty Blue to Brown Skin & City Winery is such an intimate venue too, you guys are in for a treat!! It’ll feel like every 11 member horn solo’s will be right in your ear! They may have never released an album or are rock and roll hall of famers or even heard of outside of the Prince community but they deserve to be treated as such and charge as much, a 22 piece band isn’t cheap you know, they gotta eat too. I mean would you rather see Earth, Wind, & Fire, George Clinton & the P Funk All Stars, Cameo for the same amount or even cheaper or the NPG sans Prince? Exactly! Thank you NPG & can’t wait to see you!

  13. Shelby J and Liv Warfield shows ?

    350 dollars ?

    It suuuuure worth it !

    Hey Prince, do we look that dumb and silly to you ?

    Oh I’ve forgot, maybe you’ll come to play two or three notes at the show, like you did at the aftershow party in Montreux. “Featuring Larry Graham”… You.know for sure about CONtractuel obligations)..

  14. LexAve456 I am glad you aren’t coming. Anyone who would act like that and curse on Doc’s page I don’t want to be in the room with. These ladies are amazing but Prince will obviously be there and I commend him for giving the ladies some shine. Stay home and work on your bad attitude.

  15. He will be there for Sunday’s show…………. rather, he will perform at Sunday’s show.

  16. He will be there for Sunday’s show

  17. I am sooooo happy that he is highlighting how talented Shelby J. and Liv really are. I am overjoyed for these powerfully soulful ladies. Congratulations to Shelby J. and Liv as well as the NPG Hornz!!!!!

  18. Thank you dr.

  19. This is some straight up bullshit. NYC deserves better than THIS. I’m super angry right now. Why pay all that money to see background singers with the hope of seeing someone like Prince? Fuck that!

  20. I am really excited for the ladies and NPG! I think that is great that Prince is supporting them in this way. That is BIG. Also, I think he will be there. As a Prince fan I will support. Prince is giving us the unexpected and I like it.

    Why come on here to be negative. Go find something better to do! You will be the same people mad you missed it. Thanks for always having it first Doc.

  21. Prince presents Shelby J & Liv Warfield with the NPG Hornz huh? Well at least Prince is being honest in his advertising now because this is how night 1 & 2 of Montreux should’ve been billed, wild guess but I say if he’s indeed only playing 1 show, it’s going to be the $200-$350 show, if not the NPG must put on a hell of a show to require top dollar like that! Even $75-$100 for a non Prince show seems a bit pricey to me, when it was a non Prince show with the same band in June wasn’t it only $20?? Dropping $75-$100 per show is a bit of a gamble on wondering whether or not he’s going to play that certain show & no guarantees.

  22. I wouldn’t go unless Prince was certain to appear. Let me know when he’s coming to the UK…………….

  23. Ill do The Humpty Dance with a cardboard of Justin Timberlake when the goal is reache

  24. Another yawn moment for Prince in 2013.

  25. Im taking Pledges for me to get tickets
