Looks good except Prince's continuing need to do third rate cover versions of other people's classic songs. Stop it, P. We wanna hear and see you and band do YOUR music!
PRINCE Mohegan Night 2 W/Special Guest Janelle Monae! Reviews & Set Lists! AfterParty For Night 3 On Sale Now!
Janelle Monae funked it up hard tonight at the Mohegan Sun when she joined PRINCE on stage during "Days Of Wild" and she then proceeded to perform QUEEN with 3RDEYEGIRL and The NEW POWER GENERATION backing her up!
For the second night, it WAS a different set list from the first night, switching between 3RDEYEGIRL and The NPG instead of the first night when it was always both bands combined.
Also, an OFFICIAL After Party is in effect after the main concert by Janelle and Prince tomorrow night, Sunday December 29th starting at 1 A.M. December 30th. Tickets to the after party are on sale now HERE.

Diagnosis: The set list looks hot. That 3rd night is gonna be fire.
Third night was great!! It didn't disappoint , not me anyway !! I don't think PRINCE could ever disappoint me!
He's so electrifying , so talented!! Always been one of my faves:)
12/28 show was incredible. Would we see him again? Without hesitation! A rare talent, performer, and entertainer! Fonkeeness at it's best!
Hands down the most mind-blowing experience of my life. This show was incredible!! The last encore, with the houselights on, after ten minutes of no music? Who can get away with that? I agree with oddname, every note was perfect. When he started playing guitar on Something in the Water, I got goosebumps for the first of many times. Ten minute version of Purple Rain actually had me in tears during the singalong at the end. Just all around phenomenal. I was bummed I couldn't make it back for the next day's show and afterparty. Praying for more dates to be announced soon!
Anyone else starting that late would have lost a lot of people...place was packed Saturday night even after Days of Wild just to see if he would come back out. Just amazing what that man can do, every note played was tight and on cue...would have loved to hear Breakfast Can Wait but no matter. Loved the new extended version of Lets Go Crazy..a bit slower with a real heavier rock sound was awesome!
Wow! Thanx, Doc, 4 The Updates :). Sounds Like A Gr8 Time Had By All & With The Added Forces Of Esperanza & Janelle, A Guaranteed WIN WIN! 2Nite Sounds Like It Will Be PHENOMENAL! Looking 4Ward 2 The Latest Review So, I'll Go & CRY Now & Get It Over With :).
Dude need to come to South Carolina! Especially in Columbia. He will be soldout in one day! That's how folks go crazy over Prince. There is two things I disagree on. 1) If U gonna play songs off The Purple Rain album, why not get The Revolution to back those particular songs on that list only. And 2) If he got the NPG band back, why isn't Mayté there in the group? She was in the NPG band too! In fact she was the infamous Muse that had Prince making those beautiful ballads in the first place. Yes! Mayté! The Most Beautiful Girl In The World was about her. The One was about her......etc. Prince needs to get her back and fast! Sorry but I am not feeling that Esperanza Spaulding chick dancing nor her singing. This how I feel. I feel if Prince is going to go all out, get the original members in the group back together to do the songs they know and been done with it.
Once again I am in awe just reading this setlist! Who else on this planet can display so many sides of his enormous talent in just one evening??? Prince does it all: he is the bandleader and entertainer, combining a full big band incl horn players with a stripped-down-to-the-basics rock trio, which gives him the perfect possibility to amaze with his brilliant guitar skills, throwing in some beautiful piano ballads and reminding everyone how great his voice still sounds .... is there anyone else out there who can do all this??? I seriously doubt it.
I hope that the people who are lucky to witness this genius on stage do realize just how rare his talent is!!! - Best live performer / entertainer / musician on the planet. This is not an opinion, it is a fact. (IMHO, LOL) ;)
@DannyBigelow Danny, this is just too cool! Kara had big fun!!!!!!
