PRINCE along with the NEW POWER GENERATION, 3RDEYEGIRL, and JANELLE MONAE closed out a 3 night affair at the Mohegan Sun Arena with quite a bit of flair.
The purple icon took the stage with Janelle earlier in the night to perform their duet "Givin' Em What They Love" and he was rolled out on a dolly!
PRINCE Mohegan Night 2 W/Special Guest Janelle Monae! Reviews & Set Lists! AfterParty For Night 3 On Sale Now!
Janelle Monae funked it up hard tonight at the Mohegan Sun when she joined PRINCE on stage during "Days Of Wild" and she then proceeded to perform QUEEN with 3RDEYEGIRL and The NEW POWER GENERATION backing her up!
For the second night, it WAS a different set list from the first night, switching between 3RDEYEGIRL and The NPG instead of the first night when it was always both bands combined.
Also, an OFFICIAL After Party is in effect after the main concert by Janelle and Prince tomorrow night, Sunday December 29th starting at 1 A.M. December 30th. Tickets to the after party are on sale now HERE.
PRINCE kicked off night one of a 3 night stand at the Mohegan Sun Arena last night with his 21 piece band consisting of 3RDEYEGIRL & The NPG.
He was rocking a yellow suit to perfection along with a symbol in front of his mic stand which you can see in a tweet from the 3RDEYEGIRL Twitter account below.

PRINCE also teased the crowd, asking what they are doing New Years Eve? Will keep you updated if we get any more info on a New Years Eve show from the icon.
Those three PRINCE shows at Mohegan Sun Arena just got a little bit funkier as Janelle Monae will be performing at the December 29th show!
Janelle made the announcement via her Instagram and Twitter feed within the past half hour.

Here is a link for the December 27th, and 28th shows as well.
At The Billboard Woman Of The Year Awards, a quote from Prince was used for Janelle:
"To the only person who worries me as an opening act: they could never praise you enough for your gift to all of them. Keep on giving 'em what we love!" -Prince
We saw Janelle open up for Prince in 2011 during his Welcome 2 America tour and that same night, Stevie Wonder came up to jam with Prince and Sheila E. on "Superstition". It was such an amazing night all around.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Recently, 3RDEYEGIRL stated on Twitter that they would perform "Given' Em What They Love" together with Janelle Monae at least once. Will this be the time?
Janelle Monae has just announced she has to postpone her tour immediately including a show tonight in Anaheim, California and dates in San Diego and Phoenix.
This is Janelle's official statement:
Starting today, I am under strict doctor's orders for mandatory vocal rest. Not doing so could possibly result in damage to my vocal cords.
Unfortunately, this diagnosis means I will have to postpone my coming concerts in Anaheim, San Diego and Phoenix, a fact which truly leaves me heartsick and shaken because I live for this: connecting with you and giving you a one of a kind concert experience.
But alas, apparently even the most expertly designed android breaks down sometimes and must recharge...
I promise to see you sooner than you think my friends, stronger than ever.
I love you all dearly.-Janelle Monae
Get better Janelle!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Even androids need a break sometime....
If only Arsenio had guests like Janelle Monae every night. Intelligent conversation and a funky musical performer on the rise.
The clip above, (All that is available right now) has Janelle talking about "Dorothy Dandridge Eyes" and explaining the lyrics to Arsenio. The full interview is just amazing but Arsenio cuts her off too quickly. We really were hoping for another segment from Janelle for real!
Janelle Monae brought her high energy self to Saturday Night Live and performed "Dance Apocalyptic" and "Electric Lady" on the late night show.
Her set is mostly white with a little bit of black sprinkled in. Her large band was also on pint during the performances.
SNL has not uploaded the performances to YouTube so to our viewers overseas, you may not be able to access the performances.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Janelle comes straight into your living room..in more ways than you can imagine....
Janelle Monae will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend with guest host Edward Norton!
Janelle will be performing 2 songs from "Electric lady" and for sure will be bringing it! We are super excited for her!
As for Norton, we have a feeling he will be funnier than he is given credit for.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Gonna be a fun show for sure!
Androids! Janelle Monae will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on October 26th. Edward Norton will be host.
This is Janelle's first time performing on the show and Edward Norton's first time hosting.
We cannot wait to see Janelle do her thing!!!!!-DocFB
Diagnosis: We have a feeling Miguel will make himself available to perform "Primetime" with Cindi Mayweather...don't you?
