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.
The Foo Fighters have just posted a photo of The Forum in Inglewood, California after hinting yesterday of a secret show in Los Angeles this Saturday night January 10th.
All tickets are $50.00 and on sale at 7 p.m..-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Forum hasn't been rocked this hard since.....
With only 1 show left in Australia, Prince performed 2 shows since his last main concert in Brisbane, one an afterjam that we hear was quite epic, and a 2nd secret show.
At the Brisbane afterjam, PRINCE & The NPG performed a funk-infused version of "Mutiny" with versions of "Insatiable", "Scandalous" and a full version of "Adore" thrown in. If that wasn't enough, he also performed "$", "Song Of The Heart" and "Days Of Wild" for good measure. That does not even include him performing "She's Always In My Hair" at the main show.
Then, Monday night, PRINCE performed a secret club show in Melbourne. You either got DJ Rashida's Tweet about the show or were there as we are told only 70 to 80 people were in attendance for the show. Looking at the set list, Prince performed "Love 2 The 9's" "An Honest Man", "Tambourine" "Sexy Dancer" "Strange Relationship" a cover of "Oustanding" and "Rude Boy" performed by NPG singer Shelby J.
His 8th and final "Welcome 2 Australia" concert is May 30th. No Afterjam has been announced yet and we know the people who missed the secret show and afterjam (for shame) are hoping for 1 more afterjam so that won't have to live with regret til PRINCE & The NPG come back to Australia again.
These shows sound amazing and a LOT of fun. Let's hope there is more to DJ Rashida's tweet about a soundboard recording of the Brisbane afterjam somehow getting out.-DocFB
