About 200-300 people showed up to Paisley Park Studios in what was being billed as a celebration for Record Store Day Weekend. What took place was a masterful performance by PRINCE and his band 3RDEYEGIRL followed by a soulsational set by Judith Hill!

PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL took the stage first performing "Wow", "FUNKNROLL", "Let's Go Crazy", ,"Pretzelbodylogic","Rock N Roll Love Affair" and "Stratus" along with a blistering drum solo by Hannah.

We hear Prince's guitar-playing was on fire last night with some that have seen the Minneapolis superhero a ton of times, absolutely blown away by his guitar work.

Judith Hill followed with about 40 minutes of funk. Each time they perform, the band is getting tighter, sweatier, and funkier!

Along with a few remixes from "Art Official Age" the unreleased "Revelations" was played with Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL joining in to play on top of it.

For the Record Store Day Weekend celebration, staff from Electric Fetus, Know Name, and even Amoeba Records in California were invited to attend the event for free. Others paid $30.00 for 3 performances and memorable night of fun.-DocFB

Diagnosis: PRINCE, 3RDEYEGIRL, Judith Hill, The NPG Hornz, and all of the musicians who performed last night would like to thank all record stores for their hard work, continued support of real musicians, and selling music directly.

  1. It’s so fantastic that Prince is opening Paisley Park again. I hope to get out there for another show soon. In the meantime I love all the updates!

  2. Prince is SO generous with these Paisley Park events! For a bargain, lucky fans get to see him in his home (more or less), and perform at his best – just as if he were charging $100 or more!! I love that he is doing that … but wish I could be there, too, at least once. *sigh* In my next life I want to live in Minneapolis! 😉

  3. I’m SO HAPPY That Judith Has Found True Solace In Prince’s Strong Influence & Mentoring & Her Gifts R Getting The Exposure They Deserve! I’m JELLY 4 All Of Those That Got 2 Njoy The Event But, At The Same Time Happy & Love That Every1 Had Such A (Not Surprising) Wonderful Nite & Also, Elated 4 The Homage Giving 4 The Record Stores & Owners Still In Existence. The Theme 4 The Nite Should Have Been “Back In Time” ;). 4Ever StatiK~<3

  4. Hallelujah! I love to hear that Prince is bringing the funk in full effect!!!!!

  5. Prince’s guitar work is ALWAYS on fire. Nothing new there. Prince ALWAYS puts on the best show. No “Play That Funky Music” though. I only wanna hear Prince do Prince music, except for ANOTHERLOVE which is a masterpiece cover version.
