The one and only PRINCE is set to take over the Hollywood Palladium tonight and the legendary venue may never be the same. PRINCE will be performing at the Palladium tonight March 8th, and you can buy tickets at the door!

Tix are $100.00 cash only!!!!

The Hollywood Palladium opened up on October 31st, 1940 with Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra featuring band vocalist Frank Sinatra, hence "His Way" in the title.

The last time Prince played the Palladium was in 2001 ripping the place into a frenzy as Mick Jagger, Beyonce, and others looked on. This also marks Prince's first show in Los Angeles since his historic Forum run 3 years ago.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Make no mistake about it; tonight the place to be is Hollywood Palladium. There is no artist alive that can touch Prince and his band. None. Because he does it his way is why...

Appreciate: Elevate Oakland Concert With Sheila E. & Orianthi Raises $110,000

Sheila E

Elevate Oakland raised just over $110,000 through fundraising efforts and the inaugural benefit concert, which was presented by Oakland’s own Sheila E. and held at The Fox Theatre in Oakland this past last weekend.

Funds raised through this event will go to support art and music education programs in Oakland’s public schools where no art or music curriculum is offered and will continue to support the current programs in need at schools like Castlemont High School.

“We are truly grateful for the success of Elevate Oakland’s first benefit concert. The generosity of the artists who donated their performances and time is absolutely amazing. The support of the community, the teachers, all of our sponsors and the dedication of all our volunteers is what made this event such a success,” in a joint-statement issued by Elevate Oakland’s co-founders Sheila E., Jason Hofmann, Lynn Mabry and Yoshi Akiba, “We definitely plan to make this an annual event and are already planning the next one.”
