Prince is doing shows 8, 9, and 10 of his 21 Nights In Los Angeles run this weekend and will be having Grammy Winner Esperanza Spalding opening up for him this Friday & Saturday.
Also, Janelle Monae will be opening for him next Friday, May 13th. Never has a Friday The 13th been so funky!
So far, Prince has had Gwen Stefani, Nikka Costa, Chaka Khan, Cassandra Wilson, Mint Condition, Larry Graham, and Sheila E. guest with him. The list is only going to get bigger and greater. We hear Stevie Wonder will be a guest, maybe appearing as early as this weekend.
You can purchase tickets to this weekend's show at Ticketmaster.com.
The shows have been a testament to Prince's music as no set has been exactly the same in the run, even including a cover of Roxy Music's "More Than This" to close out his show on Thursday. Prince even did rarities "17 Days" and "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" along with fan favorities such as "When Doves Cry", "Moutains", and "Little Red Corvette" and last Friday, he dropped the new song "Gingerbread Man" on L.A., a song he has only played once before.
Face it, Inglewood is the place to be this weekend.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: It Really Is The Best Place On Earth
Prince has just announced that he will be continuing his 21 nights in L.A. by doing 3 Forum Dates this weekend, April 28th, April 29th, and April 30th. Thursday, Friday, Saturday respectively.
Tickets will be going on sale Tomorrow, April 26th, at 12 Noon pacific time. That is just a little over 48 hours before the first show.
Tickets will still be $25.00 and Mint Condition will be opening for him on Friday, like they did last week. No word yet on Thursday or Saturday's opening acts or surprise guests. Chaka Khan and Larry Graham were Saturday's guests (Chaka was also opening act.) and Alicia Keys was a special surprise guest.
Since Prince's Forum run started taking place, it has been a who's who of Hollywood going to see him such as Matt Damon, Lea Michele, Justin Timberlake, Tavis Smiley, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardiem, and more.
Prince is the ultimate performer and even with tickets going on sale at such short notice, we are sure the Forum will be filled, just like your prescription of funk.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: If You Have Plans, You May Need To Break Them
There are billboards of Prince all over Los Angeles like the one above. Nice to see him everywhere as much as we see Kim Kardashian posters all over town.
Not only is Prince all over L.A., he has a half hour special entitled "Prince: Behind The Symbol airing on the Africa Channel. We tried to host some of the clips on this site, but there has been some misunderstanding and we are still trying to get it worked out.
The special features pre-show comments from celebs, fans, members of Prince's band, the N.P.G., Prince's new BFF George Lopez, and more. It also features live footage, not from L.A. but Charlotte, NC. Funky!
Also, opening up for Prince Friday night at the Forum will be R&B group Mint Condition.
