Tickets will be going on sale Tomorrow, April 26th, at 12 Noon pacific time.  That is just a little over 48 hours before the first show.

Tickets will still be $25.00  and Mint Condition will be opening for him on Friday, like they did last week.  No word yet on Thursday or Saturday's opening acts or surprise guests.  Chaka Khan and Larry Graham were Saturday's guests (Chaka was also opening act.)  and Alicia Keys was a special surprise guest. 

Since Prince's Forum run started taking place, it has been a who's who of Hollywood going to see him such as Matt Damon, Lea Michele, Justin Timberlake, Tavis Smiley, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardiem, and more. 

Prince is the ultimate performer and even with tickets going on sale at such short notice, we are sure the Forum will be filled, just like your prescription of funk.-Dr.FB

Video: Prince Takes A Ride On His Fixie Bike

So Prince played to a sold-out crowd last night at the L.A. Forum, part of his 21 nights in L.A. at the legendary venue. He took the fans for a ride musically, and then after, he took himself for a ride.

Prince, having a little bit of fun, hopped on a fixie bike n rode around his one of a kind symbol stage, surprising fans and Forum security.

Prince can still be a jokester. Thanks to Mr.Maxwell77 & Chris G. for sending this in exclusively to us! Check out the video above as fans and security try to catch up to the music icon.-Dr.FB

There are billboards of Prince all over Los Angeles like the one above.  Nice to see him everywhere as much as we see Kim Kardashian posters all over town.

Not only is Prince all over L.A., he has a half hour special entitled "Prince: Behind The Symbol airing on the Africa Channel.  We tried to host some of the clips on this site, but there has been some misunderstanding and we are still trying to get it worked out.

The special features pre-show comments from celebs, fans, members of Prince's band, the N.P.G., Prince's new BFF George Lopez, and more.   It also features live footage, not from L.A. but Charlotte, NC.  Funky!

Also, opening up for Prince Friday night at the Forum will be R&B group Mint Condition.

And Saturday....YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS IT!  GET YOUR TICKET NOW AS THERE WILL BE A SPECIAL SURPRISE PERFORMANCE BY.......

N Prince, if I post the video of this....surprise performer and you....please let us have it up for at least 72 hours to share the surprise with those people in London always griping to the Doc.  K?  Thanks!-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Opening night was just a taste of the FUNK!
