  1. As to why Prince keeps playing ‘Play That Funky Music’, I quote part of the following verse from the song
    “Now first it wasn’t easy
    Changin’ Rock and Roll and minds and things were getting shaky
    I thought I’d have to leave it behind
    But now its so much better (it’s so much better)
    I’m funking out in every way
    But I’ll never lose that feelin’ (no I won’t)
    Of how I learned my lesson that day
    When they were dancin’ and singin’ and movin’ to the groovin'”
    No matter who wrote it or who played it, this song by Wild Cherry has all the trappings and adornments of Sly and The Family Stone feel to it. It crosses creed, colour, and genre, and isn’t this what Prince and his music is all about as exampled by all those love his artistry.

  2. If I Touch The Computer Screen Right Now I May Receive A Shock, Not That It Wouldn’t Entice Me ;). But, Knowing He’s Electrifying Every1 @ His Shows Is No Shock @ All~<3

  3. “Play That Funky Music” as an encore? REALLY? Prince must really love that song. He’s put it into his set list for years. Could somebody please tell me why he loves that song so much. The set list was masterful because it was all PRINCE songs and no covers. That is, until the encore. If I NEVER hear Prince sing that song again (with or without Cody Breedlove), I’ll be so happy. Prince (and us as fans) deserve better. Out of all the songs in the Universe and Prince is fixated on “Play That Funky Music”. I just don’t get it. Otherwise, outside of the throwaway encore, the set list was absolutely perfect. Thanks to Prince for performing only HIS music. THAT is what the fans and audience TRULY want. xo

  4. Please don’t use the word plethora to describe a multitude of Prince songs. The word plethora implies that there were too many of something to appreciate it. pleth·o·ra
    ˈpleTHərə/
    noun
    1.
    a large or excessive amount of (something).
    “a plethora of committees and subcommittees”
    synonyms: excess, overabundance, superabundance, surplus, glut, superfluity, surfeit, profusion”
    Too many Prince songs? Impossible!

  5. great news for the greatest ever…

  6. Thanks for posting my tweet bro. What a show!!!!! You may like to post that 3EG were joined by Cassy O’Neal on keyboards for a lot of the less rock-oriented songs, most notably on tracks like “1999” and “Controversy”. Lots of merch available too! 🙂 The first 200 people who got there early in the day were numbered and allowed to enter earlier and in numerical order. Not sure if that’ll happen at other arenas but it paid off to get there early.

  7. So loving this…Congratulations to Prince and 3EG!!!

  8. New Prince material, and ‘new’ Michael Jackson material hitting hard at the same time…uhm…what year is this – it is good year. Great Year.

  9. Here’s hoping the “Electric Intercourse” performance gets posted to YouTube!
