PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL just played a show at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London and from what we have been told, it is one of the best concert's people have ever seen! Did we expect anything less?
Mako Bones, who was at the Electric Ballroom's shows had this to say about tonight's show!
Ok tonight was off the hook! 2 1/2 hours!
I queued for 6 hours to see the bomb! Even George Clinton was in the building in a suit so blinging white it was radiating from the balcony!
Gig started at 8 with 3RDEYEGIRL coming center stage and introducing themselves and gave a speech on wanting to connect with you without seeing your phones. Right on sisters!
Then the funk n roll broke loose!
Prince came and tore through 10 tracks including
"Chaos & Disorder", "Colonized Mind" and a slew of tracks performed on this tour. Highlight - Prince handing his guitar to me and my girlfriend! I don't know how I will ever forget that!
On the negative side when I propose to her, it will be eclipsed by that! Lol! Thanks a lot Prince!
A beautiful, magical piano medley followed , "The Beautiful Ones", "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore", "Adore", "Diamonds & Pearls" and "Do Me Baby" to name a few!
Fantastic sampler set, kicked of with "Forever In My Life" with an amazing, amazing bass solo by Prince bathed in shadows and dry ice.
Awesome 10 mins of crowd pleasing hits, followed by the band backing up sampler on "Housequake".
Prince is in such a great mood and evokes peace, harmony rock n roll and funk!!! .
Then the encores!!!!
Where do I start.....
"Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)", "Cause & Effect", "Play That Funky Music", "EndorphineMachine", "I Like It There", and "Dreamer"...
And a Godzilla version of "Bambi" with so many lights , strobes and killer killer guitar solo that guitar I swear was going to com-bust!
He really is in another realm with this band.
He seems to be mentor, spiritual pilgrim , guitar monster and living a new lease of life.
When it finished, the place was euphoric and witnessed the purple mothership leaving , probably with George on board!-Mako Bones
