NO SHOW AT THE APOLLO IS HAPPENING TONIGHT!! NO SHOW!!!!
We are hearing reports that PRINCE is in sound check right now at the Izod Center in New Jersey and will be heading to Harlem, New York to perform at the Apollo Theatre tonight.
Several of his band members have been Tweeting about the show through the day.
We hear it is open to fans but no price has been told or set.
As soon as we have more info, we will pass it on.
We hear there are already a few people in line.......-
Still no word on price or "official" announcement.-Dr.FB
Update: Everyone has went silent so adding ? mark to story, which I hate to do but rather do that then nothing..... Paul McCartney is scheduled to play Apollo tomorrow but equipment was brought in after his appearance on Saturday Night Live.....
UPDATE!!!! NO SHOW AT THE APOLLO TONIGHT. IF THERE IS ONE IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL LET YOU KNOW. THEY WANTED TO PLAY BUT IT COULD NOT "COME TOGETHER".....
What a great day to be a PRINCE fan, especially if you are in New York!
It all started as a tweet yesterday from a writer of Rolling Stone Magazine;
Just heard that Prince is holding a mysterious press conference in New York tomorrow..
Then Live Nation posted on Facebook:
OK, I know I don't sleep as much as I should but...this soooo does not look like Jennifer Lopez. Parts of her do but......not most. This was from yesterday at the Apollo Theatre where Aretha Franklin & Michael Jackson were put into the Hall of Fame.
What's up with her face? Did she drink something bitter before these photos were taken? It just does not look like here. I mean, if she was not standing next to Marc Anthony in one of the photos, I would think it was someone else totally.
So are my eyes playing tricks on me or does Jennifer Lopez look different?-Dr.FB
Mariah Carey arrived with style at the red carpet of the 75th Anniversary of the Apollo Theatre. She looked stunning.
Prince was an unannounced special guest. In fact, the lights went down on stage and then appeared with him center stage where he got one of the loudest cheers of the night.
Prince then introduced Mariah Carey before giving an award to Honoree & R& B Icon Patti LaBelle.
Patti LaBelle then joined Mariah Carey & Prince on stage to accept her honor. Mariah announced after the show that her new single "Obsession" will drop next Tuesday to radio and is produced by the Dream. We hear it is a dis track to Eminem.
Sherri Shephard attended the 75th Anniversary of the Apollo Theatre on Monday night and almost lost it when she ran into Prince.
She twittered this message: just got back from Apollo 75th Anniversary... Prince walked by me 3x...I almost passed out in my seat. He's such a tiny little thing!
It seems Prince is the star other stars get nervous to meet or see.
Speaking of Prince, it was reported that he attended the Tony Awards last night and at an after party met Karen Olivo, who is starring in West Side Story. It seems Prince said he would be attending the show next Tuesday and purchased 20 tickets in the balcony to make sure no one is sitting next to him. 20 tickets?
We are being told the ticket situation is being widely exaggerated. Karen Olivo is a married woman and did attend the Award show and after parties with her husband Also, a few years ago, Prince was put on a list of people who bring very little of an entourage with him, usually himself and someone else while a bodyguard waits in the wings. Janet Jackson would bring the most usually an entourage of 30 people. His 2 tickets sound more believable in this economy than 20!
Although...I am sure Karen Olivo would be kind of geeked while performing and looks up to the balcony and only sees Prince there!-Dr.FB
