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

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: 

HUGE announcement tomorrow at 3 PM Pacific - stay tuned. (You won't want to miss this.)
Then Moquake.com, a Prince fan web site posted about the press conference and that it is at the legendary Apollo Theatre and that fans can attend the press conference.  Very cool news!!!
On top of that, the snippet of "Rich Friends" a track to be from 20Ten deluxe, is now out in full, as posted on Prince.org early this morning.
So, hopefully the fans in New York have enough time to get there and check it out! 
As for what the news is, our lips are sealed...although with Live Nation mentioning it, you kind of know what it is!
Thanks to the Prince fan sites for that info.   We are looking forward to what he has to say and having a new song.-Dr.FB

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

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.

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
