PRINCE Offers FREE Tickets To Concert For Those Who Attended Monday’s House Of Blues Show!

Following what happened Monday night at the House of Blues Official Purple Afterjam with the police shutting down the event for curfew, Prince along with HOB and the United Center are offering every person who attended the House of Blues show on Monday a FREE ticket to his concert Wednesday night at the United Center.

As was posted earlier, Prince was going to do everything he could do to rectify what happened on Monday.  So on that note, everyone who was at the House of Blues show Monday is now going to be able to go to the United Center Show Wednesday.

Emails for ticket-holders should have already started going out.  Just bring your I.D. along with your House of Blues ticket for Monday's show and they will give you a non-transferable ticket to the show starting at 5 p.m., when gates open.

We have heard from those in attendance at Tuesday's United Center show that the sound was much better.  He also did a killer performance of "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man" and also for good measure "Shhh", "She's Always In My Hair" and a duet of "Nothing Compares 2 U" with Chicago native Jennifer Hudson.

Also, the Mayor just cleared PRINCE to play as long as he wants at the House of Blues shows!!!-DocFB

D'Angelo played his first U.S. show in 12 years at the Bonnaroo Music Festival earlier this month and will now be playing the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip on the 4th of July. Tickets though, will not come cheap.

The tickets go on sale Friday at 10 A.M. and after all the ticketmaster charges, it will cost you about $129.00.  The L.A. Times is reporting that tickets are on sale now via The Live Nation mobile App.

According to  Roots drummer Questlove, D'Angelo has 30 new songs recorded and ready for release.

Questlove said D'Angelo had recently "discovered Bowie and Zeppelin, the Beatles, 'Pet Sounds,' Captain Beefheart and Zappa," adding that the new works see D'Angelo experimenting more with guitars. It may or may not be coming out in late summer/early fall, according to Questlove.

Surprisingly, this will be only the 3rd studio album released by D'Angelo.  Questlove performed with D'Angelo at Bonnaroo with former Time and Original 7ven guitarist Jesse Johnson.

Right now, it looks like the fireworks will be at the House Of Blues on July 4th as this show is about to be the hottest ticket in town.-DocFB
