PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL Getting Set for UK Rehearsals & More At Paisley Park!

PRETZELBODYLOGIC 3RDEYEGIRL PRINCE ARTWORK

Just got this tidbit of info sent our way:

3RDEYEGIRL arrived yesterday at Paisley Park and the 1st full rehearsal for the UK shows and more is scheduled for Saturday afternoon!

Local funk band M.P.L.S. (#MPLS) will be jamming at the sound stage of Paisley Park After Dark Saturday night for $30.00. PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL will be in attendance and after will be playing NEW music and partying!-DocFB

Diagnosis: There is a lot to be thankful for in 2014.  From the new music, the NEW GIRL takeover, the London HIT AND RUN takeover, the Arsenio takeover, magazine covers (Mojo and the New Essence mag you gotta pick up), Liv Warfield's The Unexpected, the announcement of NPG MUSIC PUBLISHING, the annoucement of new music to be released on Warner Bros. plus the remasters of his Warner Bros. catalog including the 30th anniversary of "Purple Rain" this year and owning ALL of the WB masters, plus even more projects are in the works! 2014 is shaping up to be a brand new chapter in already epic career! We are not even at the half way point yet!

  1. I’m imdeessrp. You’ve really raised the bar with that.

  2. Also, instead of STREAMING a concert on 3rd Eye TV as SuzySix mentioned, I think to reach a worldwide audience IMMEDIATELY which would raise the visibility of Prince and 3rd Eye Girl far outside the realm of hard core fans, putting up an entire show, rehearsals or performances on 3rd Eye Girl/Prince’s official YouTube page would be far greater exposure for them. Most people won’t take the time to find 3rdEyeTV outside of the hard core Prince fan.

  3. It’d be cool since Prince is spending most of his time with 3rd Eye Girl if an American magazine like Rolling Stone, Spin or a British magazine would have the cajones and put Prince AND 3rd Eye Girl on the cover. Seeing just PRINCE on the cover of Essence and Mojo was a missed opportunity for the three women of 3rd Eye Girl to shine and get recognition. Plus, a photograph of ALL FOUR of them on the cover would’ve been way hotter than just yet another shot of Prince alone. The Mojo cover wasn’t that great of a shot and the Essence had Prince all puckered up and styled up with clothing, fro, sunglasses and afro, causing the guy who runs the local newsstand to scratch his head at the weirdness of it all. Not good when the average joe is making fun of a picture. Message to Funkenberry to Prince…Get your PR team to convince an internationally known magazine to run Prince AND 3rd Eye Girl on the cover. If Prince truly wants the band 3rd Eye Girl to have legs (no pun intended), more cover pictures and stories need to be done on the ENTIRE BAND. That in turn will lead to BIGGER album sales once the 3rd Eye Girl album drops which will be critical to 3rd Eye Girl’s longevity. Donna, Ida and Hannah deserve that.

  4. The only ones I feel bad for are 3rdEyeGirl since it seems their hard work on PectrumElectrum may be put off for a while and released perhaps on their website… after all Prince decides to do for his own stuff. I ain’t complaining, but I wanted badly to hear that album.

  5. I Like What Suzy Said & ABSOLUTELY, This Year Has Such PHENOMENAL
    Things Going On 4 All Of Us W/N The “Purple DNA”…THUS FAR :D!
    But, It’s My Prayer 4 “P” That This Year Is The Start Of
    MANY MORE Gr8 Things 4 Him In ALL Aspects. He Deserves Happiness & Accomplishments
    In All Areas Of His Life 4 What He Has Brought & Continues 2 Bring 2 All Of
    Us & I, 4 1, Would Be Over The Moon 2 Know This Guy Has Found ALL Of That
    & Is HAPPY & FULFILLED…He Deserves 2 Get All Of It Back 2 Him Ten…Fiddy…HUNNID
    THOU-SON FOLDz  ;)!~<3

  6. As you point out – it is absolutely amazing what has already been going on this year, in the first four months alone!!! This is even bigger than 2013, and we all know that last year was BIG! It sure is a very exciting time to be a Prince fan and I am so grateful for everything! 😀

  7. SuzySix You are so right, Suzy!  Shoot, Prince needs to charge via paypal to those of us who can’t make it to Paisley Park. $10.00 sounds about right. Prince betta get that paper!!! LOL

  8. Doc, you are so right in your diagnosis…PRINCE HAS A LOT MORE COMING THIS YEAR!!!

  9. SuzySix  It would b an EPIQ stream of an ending!!!!
    To me it seems like most aren’t happy 4 him like Eye am…

  10. I guess I was one week too early at Paisley Park. I have no words, well maybe just that I am broken hearted…wow.

  11. And we thought 2013 was Groovy! This year is EPIC!! I hope mayb they can stream one of the PP shows or rehearsals! 3RDEYE TV expires on Sunday, 5/11 unless its renewed. A stream would be TOPS 4 those of us who cant get to PP. Very exciting times right now 4 ppl of the Purple Persuasion! Oh man, i wish him so much fun and success!

  12. Also…..i hope he believes in his new work again. I want him to fully promote it and perform it. Not be a greatest hits artist….and no, the size of the venue should not dictate what an ARTIST plays.

  13. This is shaping up to be the year Prince said 2013 would be. Remember, he said 2013 is gonna be big! That turned out to be false…..2014 however, has been humongous already.

  14. should go hmmm, but no one to go with everyone’s a stick in the mud:( or cheap
